Anna B Savage
Anna B Savage studies our MA course in Popular Music Practice. She’s a London-born, Dublin-based singer-songwriter who has toured with Father John Misty after her debut 2015 EP caught his attention. She later toured with Jenny Hval and received praise from press internationally, including NPR and The Guardian.
In January 2021, Anna released her debut album A Common Turn via City Slang records. The album caught Rolling Stone Magazine’s attention, and Anna was subsequently named in their ‘Artists to Watch’ list 2021.
Apart from being named one of Rolling Stone’s ‘Artists to Watch’, Anna has been extremely busy. Not only has she released a short film to coincide with the album, but she also embarked on a UK and European tour at the end of 2021.
The short film, entitled Baby Grand, was shot over three years with Jem Talbot, Anna’s ex-boyfriend and filmmaker. The co-directed piece is profoundly moving, blurring the lines of reality; art imitates life, imitating art, imitating life. The cross-discipline, cross-genre work seamlessly blends real-life footage with actors portraying the pair’s younger selves.
