Anne Walsh

Anne Walsh was raised in Worcester, Massachusetts where a large Brazilian population dwells, and as a child her vivid imagination was initially captured by songs ranging from Broadway productions like The Sound Of Music, and singers like Ella Fitzgerald, to the distinctive jazz-pop stylings of Brazil '66. She studied music extensively, eventually earning a Master’s degree in music after moving West. Walsh performed in clubs, light operas and musicals, all of which helped shape her unique musical identity. She has performed at clubs and concert venues throughout California including The Carpenter Center, McKinney Theater, The Jazz Bakery, Spaghettini, and Spazio. Now residing in Long Beach, she’s on staff teaching at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in Hollywood.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
