Anna Thoresen On Her Inspiration
When reflecting on the inspiration and significance of her sophomore single, Anna goes on to say:
“It comes from a very vulnerable, personal place that I don’t speak about often, but screams through my music. It’s about addiction, anxiety, and being in a dark place, and everyone around you is not too different, yet no one really talks about it. Addiction is way more common than we think, especially with underage high school and college kids, and nobody talks about it without feeling shame or guilt. I’d like to break the stigma by speaking on my own experiences”.
The New Jersey native pursued her passion and performing fully after falling in love with music at the tender age of ten. As a child she developed a fascination for musical theater which fueled her to continue honing her craft well into highschool where she joined the choir. During the pandemic while at Marymount Manhattan College, she began recording her debut single, “I Think This Is Love?” and thankfully hasn’t stopped since!
