She has spent a lot of her life travelling and living in different corners of the world – from the west of Ireland to Spain to Bangladesh to New Zealand – and this has formed the basis of a lot of inspiration to her songs. Anna also performs cello in the sometimes-seen-above-ground, experimental improv group, HEX.
Over the last few years, Anna has found herself playing in beautiful venues (including a giant cave and the collapsed ruins of a church) and homes, at many festivals (Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Another Love Story, Clonmel Junction Festival, Sounds From A Safe Harbour) and shared stages with inspiring musicians such as Lisa Hannigan, This Is The Kit, Rozi Plain, Rachel Sermanni, Lankum, Ye Vagabonds, Martin Hayes, John Smith and Loah.
Following on from the release of several live performance videos and studio-recorded singles in 2018 and 2019, Anna Mieke released her debut album Idle Mind in April 2019.
“It’s a strikingly confident collection of 10 songs, full of blue sky thinking and wide open horizons…A deliriously renewable energy source.” –Siobhán Long, The Irish Times, 4-star review ★★★★
