Bio

Anna’s Revolt
Anna’s Revolt is the pseudonym of a revolutionary with an angelic, but powerful voice of politically charged lyrics, accompanied by her rhythmic acoustic guitar and banjo. Blind, a twenty-something Native American woman, and two-time cancer survivor, her life itself is revolutionary enough; but her music carries an edge rarely heard in American music since the 1960s and 70s.
Influenced by the topical folk-singers of the sixties and seventies, like Phil Ochs, Gary Green, Holly Near, and Buffy Saint-Marie, she focuses on the current social struggles and cuts to the heart of the issues without holding back. At times humorous, and always deeply insightful, Anna keeps her audience enthralled by her astute evaluations of social conditions. She jokingly refers to herself as “the only blind person that can’t play piano.”
A
nna’s identification with poverty, women’s issues, Native American struggles, and environmental concerns, come from her own first-hand experiences growing up in the Indian Villages and small towns of Oklahoma like Woody Guthrie/Sis Cunningham . Being half white and half Native, Anna has lived on both sides of the tracks. Losing her vision at the age of twelve didn’t stop her from picking up the guitar at fifteen and teaching herself how to play. Her first attempts at song-writing bore songs of broken hearted diatribes that she felt didn’t separate her from everything else on the radio nor did it have the social effects she desired. In 2001, when the war in Iraq first began, Anna picked up her guitar, for the first time in a couple of years, with a new flare and purpose. When asked why she doesn’t sing of love and happy times, she retorts, “I sing about what I know.… When there is love, peace, and freedom in this world, I’ll sing about it.”
Anna recently survived her second bout of brain cancer, and drawing from that traumatic and humbling experience, she wrote, “I Choose Life”. This inspirational song addresses the issues of medical paternalism, family despair, plus her personal commitment to fight for her life, with or with out insurance and questionable treatments. Still in remission, Anna inspires all that meet her, with her strength, perseverance, and insight. Her bravery is reflected in all her songs, but especially as she tackles the delicate issues of rape in “Men Wrote the Law” and abortion in “I’m a Human”.
Even without her radical politics, Anna stands out as someone you’ve got to see. Her sweet voice seduces you as she sings of pain that you only thought you felt. Causing you to reflect, calling you to action, Anna invokes adoration and applause. Listen to one of her acoustic accompanied commentaries and you will want to join Anna in her Revolt!
