Anna Freitas was raised on the pop and rock music of the 70's and 80's. She would sing along with the top 40 hits of the day, her ear pressed firmly against the speaker in the "way back" of her parents' station wagon. Her love of music remained strong and led Anna to first pick up a guitar at age fourteen. Before long, she became a member of her high school jazz band.
Anna's studies continued at Berklee College of Music as one of only a handful of female guitarists. At Berklee she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music with a focus on songwriting and music business. She also had the honor of one of her original songs being nominated for a Berklee student CD release.
Anna began honing her vocal chops as a member of the Berklee Reverence Gospel Ensemble. Being accepted into this vocal group as a guitar major gave her the spark to pursue singing further. After college she continued to study voice privately for several years.
Anna has performed consistently throughout New England since the mid nineties as a guitarist and vocalist with various projects. She was lead guitarist for the rock/funk group Dr. Overseer, which caught a local buzz in the club scene. Anna Also had a brief weekly gig at the renowned Wally's Jazz Cafe where she had the opportunity to play with some of Boston's best funk musicians.
Anna continued on to form her own original project as guitarist and vocalist drawing from a range of influences, including classic rock and contemporary and classic RnB. She has been a fixture in the Boston club scene, has toured and done live radio appearances throughout New England, and continues to perform at various private events in the area.
In addition to performing, studying music, and being a Mom to a young daughter, Anna truly enjoys working with kids of all ages teaching private lessons. She feels great satisfaction in knowing she had helped to encourage an interest in music for a student, whichever direction it may take!
