Almost a year since the release of her sophomore album Cat & Bird, captivating local songstress Anna Coddington returns to Raglan for her summer tour, Little Islands.
While touring is a good reason for Anna to enjoy the summer and the many beaches of New Zealand’s coastline, she notes that her single, Little Islands, has special meanings for performing in New Zealand.
“I was talking to Anna Taylor (tour poster designer) about names and the personality of the song. Little Islands is about loving New Zealand and I think touring in our small country is what this song is about,” reflects Anna.
2011 has been a busy year for Anna with the release of Cat & Bird in both New Zealand and Australia and her subsequent album release tour. In addition to touring with her band, Anna has been joining the stage with acclaimed kiwi musician Julia Deans and conceptual music collective Fly My Pretties.
With a successful year behind her, Anna has her sights set on the international stage in 2012 with plans to travel over to the UK. With her new Berlin-based management company setting up a few meetings and shows, Anna says “my new first priority is to keep writing and getting new music out.”
Of returning to play in her hometown, Raglan, Anna notes “ It’s my dad’s bar so that’s always good but this is where my musical roots are and I’m really proud to bring my friends here.”
Anna will be joined by DJ Killamanraro at the YOT Club on Friday 27th January, presale tickets are $15 from the YOT Club, GAG surf shop and undertheradar.co.nz.
