ANNIKA is a storyteller. Born and raised in Calgary, she is an accomplished musician, vocalist and songwriter known for her soulful vocals. Her voice transports audiences through a musical journey, filling spaces in our hearts and souls with a rich, nuanced emotion.
Her ability to capture audiences comes not just from her musical charisma, but from a refreshingly authentic and often comedic personality, which has powerfully engaged and entertained audiences around the world as part of the CCMA-nominated ‘Leaving Thomas’ duo, and now, as a highly anticipated solo artist.
ANNIKA is taking a new musical direction since moving on from the country-pop duo by releasing her first full length solo album, Stand Still. The project is a departure from her previous work and showcases a more mature, introspective ANNIKA, highlighting her talents as a musician, specifically as a piano player. The project will be broken down into two EPs and one deluxe album, delivering a total of 14 tracks.
“After reviewing all the songs I’d written over the past two years, it just became clear that I needed to record a full album based in the singer/songwriter genre. It’s where my heart is right now and I feel it is what is most authentically me as an artist and as a woman.”
Inspired by artists such as Elton John, Carole King and Alicia Keys, ANNIKA’s new sound combines her love of country songwriting with heartfelt piano playing and melodic vocals. With her latest single, “The Death Of Me,” she’s taking a page out of Shania Twain’s book and kicking things up a notch by combining classic country with a twist of pop.
As a classically trained pianist, violinist, and vocalist, she has performed around the world. ANNIKA is poised to be Canada’s next breakout female artist as her fans wait in anticipation to hear her new music, and to see her fun and refreshingly quirky personality back on stage.
