new vitality to classic tunes by the likes of
Cole Porter and Duke Ellington.”

ABOUT

New Orleans-based vocalist Anna Laura Quinn is gaining notice for her particular blend of contemporary jazz, well-loved tunes from the American Songbook, French and Brazilian music, and more, all delivered with style, sensitivity, emotional power, and a joie de vivre that recalls the charm and mystique of a bygone era.

 

A recent graduate of the Jazz Studies masters program at the University of New Orleans, Anna made her debut appearance at the 50th annual New Orleans Jazz Fest with the UNO Jazz All-Stars in 2019. While at UNO,  she performed alongside such internationally renowned guest artists as Terence Blanchard,  Kurt Elling, Ellis Marsalis, and the legendary Dr. Lonnie Smith, to name a few.  Her other appearances in New Orleans have been at such venerable jazz venues as Snug Harbor and Dos Jefes. 

In 2018 she released her debut EP, I Feel the Sudden Urge to Sing!, and her full length album Open the Door follows in 2022, featuring nine original arrangements that knit together a variety of the influences that she has held dear on her musical trajectory.

Anna is propelled by her unwavering dedication to music, visual art, and collaboration, and is constantly seeking out new experiences that will open the door for personal growth, self-understanding, and a deepening  sense of  community.  She brings this spirit to her craft as a vocalist,  leaning  into the improvisational essence of the  jazz idiom and delivering lines with sincerity, humor, and imagination.  Anna hopes that her music, and indeed all of her creative endeavors, may convey a spectrum of emotions and above all a heartfelt expression of her joy.
