ANNA LAUBE w/ GABE BURDULIS

Anna Laube's second studio album, a roots-pop-Americana collection entitled Pool All the Love * Pool All the Knowledge (Ginkgo), builds upon the sound that she cultivated on 2006’s critically acclaimed debut, Outta My Head

“Her voice is an alluringly warm, friendly instrument—sweet without becoming cloying, tender and heartfelt and rich from just a hint of a soft husky purr from time to time,” writes Todd Lavoie of the San Francisco Bay Guardian. “Fans of Sarah Harmer's easygoing indie folk or the Be Good Tanyas' front-porch-and-a-beer tribute to old-timey sounds will find much to love in Laube's material, as it shares many similarities with those artists.” 

Born in Iowa City, IA, and raised in Madison, WI, Anna Laube (pronounced “Lau” like “now” and “be” like “to be or not to be”) played piano, saxophone, and violin during her formative years and later studied oboe at the Académie de Musique Grétry in Liège, Belgium, on a Rotary scholarship. She picked up guitar along the way.

After moving to San Francisco, she started performing her own songs at a cafe on Castro St., Le Bon Gateau, while recording herself in her apartment as well with Jason Quever (Papercuts) at his Pan American Recording Studio a few miles away. She finished up the album with Mark Whitcomb at DNA Studios in Madison, WI. NPR reviewed the result of this debut record, declaring, “Anna Laube makes intimate, heartfelt songs rooted in traditional Americana. With a strong voice reminiscent of Neko Case or Jenny Lewis, Laube sings with a slight but refreshing country twang over a mix of blues, country and folk.” 

She’s toured extensively, curated an art and music event in downtown San Francisco entitled The Love Show (I, II, & III), and has been heard on XM Satellite Radio and The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour. Anna has appeared at festivals including SXSX, The Midwest Music Festival, the Monterey Blues Festival, Rootstalk, The WI State Fair, and Folk Alliance International. Songs from her two studio albums, Outta My Head and Pool All The Love * Pool All The Knowledge, are receiving airplay worldwide.

Listeners can buy albums and singles directly from her record label at www.annalaube.com/musicstore, or at iTunesCDBaby, and Amazon.com. Check out Anna on Pandora.com and Last.FM.
