Anna Coddington new single ‘Release Me’, her first new material for 2016. The yacht-rock inspired ‘Release Me’ features a driving rhythm sitting alongside a riff which lures in the listener. Performed live for the first time with Fly My Pretties early in 2016, ‘Release Me’ is another welcome addition to the catalogue of Anna.

Anna is one of NZ’s finest musicians known for her enchanting live performances and a voice which “flows perfectly from soft to grunty”.

Anna is currently working on her third album which will be the culmination of five years of diligent songwriting and many hours in her home studio, combined with studio sessions at Auckland’s The Lab with some of NZ’s finest musicians.

She holds a Master’s Degree in Linguistics, is a former winner of the Smokefree Rockquest as a teen, and has been a finalist for the Silver Scroll numerous times. Anna is a frequent collaborator with the collective Fly My Pretties, a mother, environmentalist, and a second-dan Karate black belt.
