2013-06-04 BERGENDAHL OPENING FOR BONNIE RAITT
We are proud to announce that Anna Bergendahl will support Bonnie Raitt at her concert in Stockholm, Cirkus, July 16th.
When Anna was 16 years old she did the audition for the Swedish Idol where she performed the Bonnie Raitt song “Have A Heart” and totally blew the jury away. “I’m totally blissed. Nobody have given me such shivers since I was sitting by the grand piano with Celine Dion in Las Vegas”, says Anders Bagge “I really hope that the Swedish people understands her greatness. Super!” ,says Laila Bagge “The most musical and the best I ever heard in this competition”, says Andreas Carlsson.
There are more people falling for Anna’s special voice and her musical greatness. Her latest album “Something To Believe In” is a result of a unique collaboration between Anna and the American producer and song writer Larry Klein who worked with artists like Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, Melody Gardot, Madeleine Peyroux among others.
Anna is currently working with the release of the album in the US and also soon a new single in Sweden. Quote from USA Today: “The young Swede's meltingly rich vocals give an enhanced sense of longing to the title track of her U.S. debut”
Anna about the gig: "Bonnie Raitt is one of my biggest role models and to be given the opportunity to open for her and her audience is one of the biggest things I’ve ever done. Ever since I was a young girl I’ve always listened to and gotten inspired by her natural way of singing, her genuine expression and her fantastic way of playing the guitar. The fact that I've also been writing with the same song-writers as she has, and that my breakthrough in Swedish Idol was with her song “Have A Heart”, makes it all feel a little bit like fate.”

Some words and reviews of the album:
Impresses with a very thoroughly worked and dreamy melancholic album
Svenska Dagbladet, Dan Backman It
’s a long way from the Eurovision Song Contest, but Anna Bergendahl has made the journey
-Aftonbladet, Per Magnusson
The extremes oscillates between the sound of early Norah Jones on ”The sensible choice” and cowboy country a la Lee Hazelwood
-Dagens Nyheter Sara Norling
The strong line-up and the one and a half year recording time vouch for quality and the expectations are fulfilled
Here is an artist with poise, power and an extraordinary voice with a rare twist in the base
-TT Spektra, Carl Cato
The final result is genuine, sincere and hard to resist.
And imagine that, at the age of 20, already have recorded an album most
others in the same genre keep looking for through their entire careers.
Anna Bergendahl is worth all respect!
-Värmlands Folkblad – Björn Stefanson
She's found her home. Anna is well established.
-QX – Pär Björkdahl
