Bio

ANNA WOLF creates alternative music with lyrics that are layered with a poignancy that she uses to hypnotize audiences on a journey of self-discovery that may leave you with the feeling of being heard. Wolf, previously known as Tailor, has done numerous albums and performed in front of thousands of fans across the world, yet she has recently skinned her past by facing it in her debut album Believer as ANNA WOLF.
 
BELIEVER is Anna Wolf’s most personal work up to date. The album delves into Wolf’s turbulent early life and how she refused to become the victim of her circumstance.  
 
Wolf was born in Pretoria, South Africa, to a nurturing mother and a troubled father. Her childhood was a nomadic series of events often inspired by her father’s demons chasing their family to leave town in a blind hurry. Her early music reflected a deep hurt that translated into an aggressive stage performance and eventually matured in her hypnotic stage persona.
 
In her early career, Wolf took part in talent shows and signed her first record deal at age fifteen with Gresham Records as the front-woman for her then band Mel-funktion. Her singles: Take Me Away and Breath On Me topped South Africa’s single charts and she was noticed by fans and industry professionals alike.
 
Wolf, as the front-woman for Mel-funktion, toured South Africa and played in various iconic venues. In 2007 she signed her first publishing deal with Active Music and honed her songwriting and composer skills on multiple media platforms. 
 
In 2012 the artist was signed to South Africa’s leading record label, Just Music. She worked with industry legend Karl Anderson and producer Matthew Fink to establish her previous performance persona, Tailor.
 
Wolf aka Tailor’s 2013 debut album, The Dark Horse, was nominated for two SAMA’s (South African Music Awards), she received another 2015 SAMA nomination for her second album Light, and a 2017 SAMA nomination for her latest album Trust Pt. 1.
 
In 2015 she was signed to South Africa’s top management company Real Concerts and worked with company founder, Roddy Quin, to build her as an international act.  
 
In 2016 Wolf aka Tailor recorded her third album titled Trust Pt. 1 with producer Zak Loy (lead guitarist for the multi-platinum American band, LIVE) in Austin Texas at the infamous recording facilities, Orb studios. Tailor collaborated on Trust Pt. 1 with various musicians ranging from the bassist, Ainar Peterson (Kelly Clarkson) to the drummer, Antoun Ramy (Seal, Black Eyed Peas) amongst others. She was asked to collaborate live and/or in the studio with various world-renowned performers, producers and industry leaders such as LIVE frontman, Ed Kowalczyk’s, Ken Stringfellow from R.E.M, American band; Kongos, and Grammy-nominated music producer Tim Palmer (David Bowie, Pearl Jam, U2).
 
Tailor’s singles, Shaped like a Gun and the track, Wolf from her album The Dark Horse featured on FOX Network’s hit show, So You Think You Can Dance, for 2 seasons. 
She performed solo shows at various iconic London venues, including The Bedford, The Troubadour and The Half Moon and performed in high profile festivals including Austin Texas SXSW, South African’s OppiKoppi and The Real Concert Series in The United Kingdom and South Africa.
 
In 2017 she was asked to open for Johnny Clegg on his final tour played to sold-out audiences in South Africa and London’s exemplary Apollo Theatre in Hammersmith.
 
During 2018 Wolf aka Tailor toured South Africa to sold-out venues, and proved to draw crowds in the United Kingdom. She was also asked to join the infamous American band, The Posies, on their 30th-anniversary tour across the United Kingdom.    
 
In 2018 she followed her heart to London where her talent as a songwriter and performer was recognized by producer and remixer Pete Boxta Martin and Sony-BMG signed songwriter Dantae Johnson. They offered her a production deal under their company Three Bears Entertainment the day after she sent Boxta Martin a cell phone video of a song she wrote and performed in an acoustically unique bathtub.
 
Believer was born in studio that week, and some of the noise Wolf made in the tub even made it into Boxta Martin and Johnson’s explosive final mix. Boxta Martin and Dantae Johnson were ignited to create an album with Wolf that they are currently busy recording.
