Anna Waters, an emerging Australian artist with a big future, has released her new single 'Sunshine'. Last year Anna collaborated with a number of songwriters to craft a fresh collection of songs with a diverse range of indie pop, ballad and gospel elements. 'Sunshine' is the first release from this collection of new material.
Anna was 16 when she was pointed out on stage at a youth event and told that God would use her voice for healing. That moment and many like it would encourage what God had already started in her. She knew that music was going to be a tool that she could use to point people towards God's transformational love.
Her artistry has seen her lead worship for over a decade at her home church, at various conferences and events, join the band Sons of Korah, and then, in 2016, release her debut EP.
Anna's lyrics point towards God's hope and his love that changes everything. Her music is for everyone, whether you clearly see God in the stories, or hear lyrics of hope that are yet to be personally experienced.
"I wrote these songs hoping to spark curiosity in people who identify as 'spectators of the faith'. I want everyone to feel that my music is not only accessible but a whole lot of fun too. God meets us where we are at, so why shouldn't music."
Anna studied music at tertiary level and now works as a music therapist in hospitals, psych wards, schools and with clients in their homes. She often finds herself sitting beside palliative patients, singing and making music for them in their last moments of life. She finds this work to be incredibly humbling and serves as a reminder that God continues to use her music for healing.
