Singer/Songwriter Anna Thomas is a musical contradiction, because, at only 14 years of age, she delivers her original jazz/pop/soul music with both the infectious energy of a newcomer and the expert skillfulness of a seasoned veteran. Salim Nourallah describes her this way; "I've been a working musician/producer for over 20 years and have never come across a young talent as formidable as Anna Thomas." Immersed in music even before birth, her grandfather played sax in the legendary Stax record sessions in Memphis for Elvis, The Box Tops and Issac Hayes. As many successful artists, Anna began her own musical journey in church, where she began singing in musicals at the age of 8. Shortly thereafter, she began writing and arranging her own music. Originally entertaining friends, family and the congregation, Anna's ambitions soon flourished into something more.

Singer/Songwriter Anna Thomas is a musical contradiction, because, at only 14 years of age, she delivers her original jazz/pop/soul music with both the infectious energy of a newcomer and the expert skillfulness of a seasoned veteran. Salim Nourallah describes her this way; "I've been a working musician/producer for over 20 years and have never come across a young talent as formidable as Anna Thomas."

Immersed in music even before birth, her grandfather played sax in the legendary Stax record sessions in Memphis for Elvis, The Box Tops and Issac Hayes. As many successful artists, Anna began her own musical journey in church, where she began singing in musicals at the age of 8. Shortly thereafter, she began writing and arranging her own music. Originally entertaining friends, family and the congregation, Anna's ambitions soon flourished into something more.

In 2008 Anna began working with Matt Gaskins, a multi-instrumentalist University of North Texas graduate, first as a student, and then a collaborator. Anna continues to write and co-write with Matt and they have developed a great partnership for creating and performing amazing music.

Now living in the Dallas area, Anna performs regularly at many wineries, coffee shops and listening venues including The House of Blues, Poor David's Pub, and The Lone Star Wine Cellar. She captivates audiences with sets that blend her original music with unique covers including songs by such artists as: The Beatles, The Hush Sound, Radiohead, Switchfoot, Melody Gardot, The Police, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson and even Ozzy Osbourne!

Anna's music is in rotation at many college and indie radio stations around the world. Many of Anna's original songs have been featured on various indie radio shows including Indies Top 10 and Mevio Radio. She also has had several songs in the Top Ten Pop and Rock charts on Broadjam, including the song "Trace of Light" at number one.


What are people saying about Anna?

"I've been a working musician/producer for over 20 years and have never come across a young talent as formidable as Anna Thomas. She's only 13 but has a voice that resonates and soars effortlessly like that of a singer 3 times her age. Almost as if an old soul is living within her... Her words also convey a depth and wisdom far beyond her age. Listen carefully to her music and if you're not deeply moved, I doubt if you can be moved..."

Salim Nourallah
Artist/Producer


"The first time I heard Anna Thomas I knew she was something special. One thing that has become increasingly rare in today's music scene is to find an up-and-coming artist that can write and perform clean and simple songs in a thought provoking way. In my opinion Anna has joined the ranks of Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor in doing just that. Anna has earned a home on the Mevio Radio playlist for the foreseeable future."

"Anna Thomas is only 13 years old and that makes her rather mature voice a pleasant surprise."
