Anna Hawkins to tour new album 'Bold, Brave & Beautiful'

New Zealand singer-songwriter Anna Hawkins has announced the release of her colourful new album 'Bold, Brave & Beautiful' for March 10th.

Anna's third studio album sees the performer release her most energetic offering to date, with an added emphasis on a new phase of her career - songwriting. Drawing from a variety of musical inspirations, the album maintains continuity with her iconic voice and inspirational song selection while experimenting with the style of her original material. 

The album also features the same lush instrumentation of previous works as she's teamed up again with talented Polish producer Pawel Zarecki, recording the album and orchestra in Warsaw. The diverse song-list combines Anna's original material with some brilliantly reimagined works finding musical expression for the central themes of freedom, courage and vulnerability. 

Anna explained "For me it represents having fun and being brave. Whats been really exciting about this album is exploring my own songs which have taken me into new territory musically. I’m drawn to songs that move me over and above a specific genre of music. This is reflected in what I’ve performed over the years and especially in what I've sought to create with this album." 

Returning from Europe where Anna as been touring and recording for the last 6 months, The “Bold, Brave and Beautiful" Nationwide Tour will commence in March.

Led by Musical Director Stephen Small,  Anna will also be joined on stage by her band for parts of the tour and various special guests at each stop including her sister Lisa Grace Hawkins.
