Anna Gutmanis, an award-winning Canadian songwriter, singer and keyboardist, entwines her brave, edgy lyrics with deep, blues-style vocals. In 2011, Anna and Juno-nominated producer Karen Kane brought together some of the Toronto area’s most talented musicians to record a new album of original material entitled Glimmer In The Dark, presently nominated for 2 RightOUT TV Music and Video Awards. Anna and Karen previously worked together on Anna’s single I Am Who I Am, which won the Pride in The Arts "2009 Pride Song" Award. Anna is a longstanding musician on the Canadian music scene. The single, Then Came You, from her 1989 self-titled album, can still be heard on Canadian commercial radio stations. This debut release received airplay in every Canadian province and territory, and further songs earned her a FACTOR grant for Canadian Talent on Record. Glimmer In The Dark is Anna’s strongest work to date and is enjoying airplay at Canadian Campus radio and international LGBT, indie & women’s radio. Look for further gigs, followed by a new video in 2013.
What people are saying about Glimmer In The Dark:
“Gutmanis radiates with her musical mission. The album's most ambitious track, "Middle of the Line," features a blazing electric guitar solo, and sounds like something that Bonnie Raitt would cover.”
- Gregg Shapiro, Music Reviewer, The Bay Area Reporter
"I personally LOVE Anna’s new album Glimmer In The Dark! I hope it gleans the rewards/awards which in my opinion are justly deserved."
- Anita Gibbons, Producer, Women On Waves, JOY 94.9, Australia
“Much like John Lennon's "Imagine", Anna has the ability to touch your soul with a common and shared emotional sense of what is."
- Len Rogers, Founder – Rainbow World Radio and StoneWall Society
"…every track is greater than the last. Anna and everyone who made this CD possible – you nailed it!" - Tom Edmondson, Producer - The Tenth Voice, KKFI 90.1FM Kansas City, U.S.A.
"The tunes are refreshing and have great energy" - CHOQ 105.1 FM, Montreal QC, Canada
