"Intense, soaring singer/pianist Anna Winthrop and cellist Kirin McElwain play their individualistic, windswept, cinematic, jazz-inflected art-rock"
"Singer/pianist Anna Winthrop defies categorization." Her music is "a mix of lush art-rock, terse chamber pop and classical art-song, sometimes with just the hint of cabaret. Her tunes are translucent and catchy.. her lyrics are thoughtful, sometimes opaque, and draw you in.. and she's a fantastic singer".

The last couple of years have been challenging and I think we could all use a dose of inspiration heading into 2022!

I wrote ONE (Song for Democracy) because I have come to realize that our democracy is incredibly fragile, and believe that the division and polarization we face is one of our greatest challenges. I think we need a positive message as an antidote, and to motivate us to work together.

If you want to feel uplifted watch or listen here.

I am excited to announce that I will be releasing songs regularly starting with 'All of Me'. This one is about getting in your own way, and draws on my jazz roots. I had a lot of fun with this arrangement and recorded all instruments!

I am finally wrapping up recording for my debut album Coming Home. What a journey it has been to learn how to do this on my own! I will be rolling out songs from the album slowly (and sprinkling in a few stand alones that may not end up on the album) starting this fall. The album as a whole reflects themes that have been central in my life: forging your own path, being true to yourself and finding empowerment even in the face of challenges.

I am so happy to join Carnegie Hall's Lullaby Project! I connect to this project both as a musician and as a mother, and what fun to collaborate with other artists around the world during our training. To learn more visit

I am honored to have been profiled by the Malala Fund, a wonderful organization that helps girls from around the world to complete 12 years of safe, quality education. To learn about their programs and how to become involved, visit

Debbie Burke - Jazz Author: Voicing a Story with Anna Winthrop
The tease of releasing songs one at a time rather than dropping a whole body of work in one album is easily forgiven when you realize that a sublime three minutes will do...for now.

There is so much time, energy and cost that goes into producing music as an independent musician. I write, arrange and record my own music and often hire session musicians and mixing and mastering engineers to help with the final mix and master. Currently, I have been using music that I have already written while I learn about music production and distribution. What I would really love to do is to record music I am currently working on, and continue to write and improve. I have so much music in me and so much still to learn!

But I cannot do this without your support. Here are some ways you can help!
