Biography

My name is Anna Macdonald, I have a passion and love for music of all description. I am a singer songwriter and am influenced by everything, I listen to all types and genres of music with a particular interest for energy and story-lines inside songs.
I'm known in New Zealand as the chick off the Telecom ad (Connecting New Zealanders was an advertising campaign for the national mobile phone company, I was featured as an up and coming artist) My latest performance was on the National Sports Awards (Halbergs) which is the equivalent in New Zealand of the Oscars : ) It was a big honor, and the program was televised live on two of the national mainstream TV channels. The music I perform and write varies, but most of my repertoire has distinct folk, jazz, pop and country influences. I am different from other song-writers because of the area I live in, it is so vast and beautiful, there is a lot of time to write and a lot of space to think without being directly influenced by MTV or the Radio. I have a different style and a love for music which I strive to reflect through my performance.

Lyrics for "Blue Butterfly"

Just walk on in
Yeah I see you standing there
But I won't let that interfere with what I'm doing
And I'll pretend
Don't try to understand that I
Till my face is blue that I will try
To get my way

I was mistaken
I felt the room pace change as she entered through the doorframe
And it's not like I'm attentive towards it or anything
I just thought that maybe there was something more

Now all the days they just loose colour
Brown leaves falling from the sky
And I
I wish that I was stronger
Under the wing of a Blue Butterfly
A Big Blue Butterfly

Curtains yellow with the sunlight
And I'm just lying in my bed
Thinking 'bout past happenings
And how
How to get you out of my head
When it happens
It happens rocket speed
It's like inhaling pepper
You know just what you're gonna get
But it doesn't take much to make a memory
Looking down from a 100 storeyed building
It's not the kind of view that you forget

Big Blue Butterfly

There's no.8 wire in my hair
It keeps rubbing up against my skin
And I'm so sick of all the love songs
coz that's just
That's just not the mood I'm in

I promise I won't speak so loud
Or whisper
unimportant things into the night
No
I just like the way he holds me
And tells me that I look alright

Big Blue Butterfly

Just walk on in
Yeah I see you standing there
Blue Butterfly
