Ann-Marita Garsed

"The story of singer/songwriter Ann-Marita’s life unfolds over four countries on three different continents. Growing up on a farm in the Norwegian mountains, she was as country as country gets. But with a great love of music and the desire to create some herself, without any role models closer than the stars of her parents’ record collection; Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Lynn Anderson, and of course – Kenny Rogers, she had to use her imagination."

Ann-Marita has a rich and stunning voice, comparable in style and quality to Jewel (Kilcher) in this listener's opinion, and with a song writing talent to match. Ann-Marita has done the hard yards, and has put together a fine debut self titled album in Melbourne, Australia where she is now based.

Check out Ann-Marita's web site www.annmarita.com for reviews and more information on this versatile singer songwriter.

May 2005: Australia’s Ann-Marita has gone all the way to Number 1 on the Australia International Country Music Chart!

She is also Number 20 on the Worldwide Mainstream Most Played "Major & Indie" Artists Chart.

Ann-Marita has her own style of country. While she grew up listening to Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Kenny Rogers, her influence by other musical styles, like rock and blues, color the sound that is so unique you instantly know it’s her.

Ann-Marita describes her debut cd as being about “growing up, and having to do it a little faster than expected. It’s about heartbreak, survival and finding your place in the world … When someone tells me that they were moved by one of my songs, …I know that I’ve hit the mark.” Ann-Marita wrote all of the songs for her self-titled debut album, released in June 2004.

Ann-Marita has already traveled around the world, going to school and performing. She was born and raised on a farm in the Norwegian mountains. She then spent many years living in a small mining community north of the Arctic Circle. At fifteen, she spent a year living in Iowa, as a foreign exchange student. This was followed by Gothenburg, Sweden, where she landed a two-year contract as the lead vocalist in an international show band performing on cruise ships in northern Europe. Ann-Marita landed in Australia in 2003.

Ann-Marita’s appears on the cover of the April edition of Blazing Boots and is featured in Country Music Capital News, Australia’s top country music magazine. She has also appeared in several magazines and websites, including the Inside Connection, Smother.net, and CountryReview.com. Ann-Marita is about to return to the studio to begin recording her sophomore album.
