Causal Friday - Anna Calvi

Following in a Casual Friday tradition of saluting kick ass women in Music: I present
Anna Calvi
First we kiss - My personal fav.
She has a very distinct style - always in red with a bold lip, smokey eyes and polished up-do hair
Musically she is known for her powerful voice, intricate guitar playing and ambiguous lyrics.
She released her Eponymous debut album in January 2011 to critical acclaim and a barrage of industry awards - her new album 'One Breath' is due to drop in October #totesexcite
Eliza - single from the new album.  Take a listen.
Of the new album Anna Calvi told NME it was inspired by her battle with depression:
"It's a huge part of what life is, having no control," she said. "How terrifying that is, but then soothing too - that's what love is about, what death is about, the whole thing is about not being in control. It seems to be something that always comes back in my writing, and it's expressed a lot on this record."
 In other words - when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
Beautiful, melodic lemonade.
Girl collects award bling!
