"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".

I am excited to announce that I will be releasing songs monthly 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!

Listen now:

Or join my inner circle (you will be asked when you leave this site) and I will deliver my songs straight to your inbox after each release.


Very grateful to jazz author, Debbie Burke for the interview and kind words. "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. " Debbie Burke.

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 https://www.carnegiehall.org/Education.Programs/Lullaby-Project.
