Effortlessly gorgeous Jazz with mesmerising vocals and elegant tones by Anna Varga
Anna Varga is a reincarnation of Old Hollywood.
Anna started singing as a child in a Baptist church in St. Louis, competing with other children for candy. She was hired to perform singing telegrams and to perform on a showboat on the Mississippi riverfront as a teen. She moved to Chicago to study at the Bloom School of Jazz and performed at the famed Checkerboard Lounge on Chicago's South Side "The birthplace of Chicago Blues". She was then accepted to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London where she studied Shakespeare and performed as a theatre actress. Upon return to the States, Anna settled in New York. One night she got up and sang at The Lenox Lounge in Harlem on a dare. Soon she found herself being invited to sit in with various Jazz players around the city. On the scene, she met the Alex Levin Trio and recorded "Love For Sale' circa 2011. Anna has independently produced two studio albums and in the planning stages for the third project called L.E.S.
An Italian song about a lost summer love and the bitter memories the season elicits thereafter, originally titled, Odio l'estate (I Hate the Summer).
A song about failure and hard times. It’s what we were feeling as a band and how we felt about the world when we went into the studio.
