In Annaka‘s own words, “Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream nobody can see but you.”
The Atlanta-based Singer/songwriter has lived this mantra firsthand, as her sacrifices have helped her blossom into a world-class artist.
She’s always possessed an angelic voice and stunning looks – that much came standard. However, it wasn’t until Annaka’s foray into electronic music that she truly found herself. After collaborating with such producers as JJ Stevens and Byte Bandit on songs spanning the EDM spectrum, she’s arrived at her own signature fusion of electro pop and future bass in the songs comprising her debut studio album, “Penumbra”.
The appeal of her music lies in her poignant grasp of both relatable lyrical content and captivating melody. Her songs are her diary, and their topic matter ranges from relationship woes to self discovery – but she carefully selects each chord for its role in telling each song’s greater musical story.
Her latest release with N3WPORT, “New Day” stays true to her beautiful way of capturing her audience and leaving all of the emotions outside for the world to feel. In an exclusive sit down with Annaka, we asked her what was her inspiration for this song. This is her reply:
“I wrote it to a friend. Not any specific friend but to all of them. When something hard happens in life, a lot of people get trapped in a negative head space and have a hard time seeing the light at the end of a very dark tunnel. I wanted to write lyrics to those people that would encourage them and give them hope that things will be better tomorrow. Every day is a new day to make better choices, move on from heartaches and find their happiness again.”
