About Anna Calvi

A singer/songwriter with an operatic voice and virtuosic guitar skills, Anna Calvi makes powerful, passionate music influenced by flamenco, goth rock, and classical composers such as Ravel and Debussy. On early albums like 2011's Anna Calvi and 2013's One Breath, she used the formidable strength of her voice and guitar to express archetypal lust and heartache. Later, on 2018's Hunter, she adopted a looser, more vulnerable style as she challenged conventional notions of sexuality and gender identity. As Calvi's music evolved and expanded to include projects such as scoring the TV series Peaky Blinders, the intensity of her work never wavered. Neither did her critical acclaim, which included multiple Mercury Prize nominations. When Calvi revisited Hunter's songs on 2020's more intimate Hunted, it attracted contributions from the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Julia Holter, and Courtney Barnett.
