Anna Scouten has been attracting a lot of attention from a young age as a talented and
sophisticated performer, with steely blue eyes and an arresting voice. From being featured
on Joshua Hyslop’s hit ‘What Have I Done?” (from the album Where the Mountain Meets the
Valley ) to touring with her sister and fellow musician Sarah Jane Scouten, she has already
established herself as an artist. Based in Vancouver and originally from Bowen Island BC,
this 25-year-old is on the verge of blowing the top off Canadian indie-folk music. Her lyrics
are cutting and her melodies are unexpected. With heavy influences of Cat Power, Feist, Joni
Mitchell and Billie Holiday, and a history steeped in jazz and folk music, this is a young
musician you’re going to want to keep an eye out for.
“Local artist Anna Scouten’s quiet folk is the perfect backdrop for her stunning voice. Her
lyrics are both melancholy and romantic, deeply personal yet endlessly relatable."
- POP! Montreal
“Soft, acoustic folk numbers carried by Scouten's high, clear vocal coos. The arrangements are simple and plaintive, with guitar strumming joined by touches of banjo, strings and percussion. – Exclaim
“Anna has a pure n’sweet voice capable of reaching those high notes that somehow leave
the air clearer once they’re gone. Hearing her sing is like washing the guck of everyday
sound out of your ears.” – The Vault
