Anouschka is a Swedish/American singer songwriter with an international cult following. A charismatic performer, she has over 1000 performances from Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, Boston, Sweden, Germany, Kenya and South Africa under her belt. Journalists describe her as "Marianne Faithful meets Joan Osborne, Shania Twain and Nora Jones". She calls her style "A-nordic-ana"- Scandinavian pop with American Roots and Jazz. Stylistic versatility, well-crafted lyrics, strong guitar and vocals have resulted in her songs being played worldwide on blues to pop stations. She has honors from Billboard World Song Contest, IAMA (International Acoustic Music Awards) contest, John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and has been on AMA Charts (Americana Charts) in Nashville, USA and #1 in Germany on Reverbnation Charts.
This year (2014) Anouschka introduces a fresh new afro-fusion sound. Western songwriting meets East African urban beats on her new album "Shine". Tracks have already been featured in Kenya on TV and radio. The album aims to help popularize Kenyan music abroad while helping orphans and the poor locally. Past years have found Anouschka spending more time in Kenya helping her mother with a scholarship program for young orphans: Milele Children Foundation. Anouschka is also devoted to wildlife causes, and has spent a few months training in the South African Bush. This year her song with Gareth Patterson "Dying to be Free" was the campaign song in over 60 countries to save the African lion from canned trophy hunting.

"Joni Mitchell, Lisa Loeb, Meredith Brooks,Fiona Apple or Joan Osborne are the clear comparisons one can draw here...Fans of mentioned female singer/songwriters will absolutely love this slightly alternative sounding American/Swedish singer/songwriter."Angelfire.com **** (May 03, 2013)
“Anouschka is a master of versatility... at the same level of Norah Jones and Shania Twain and Ms. Joan Osbourne. A wonderful voice, with the ability to phrase in the way normal pop stars can't....pop as well as jazz and blues, all unobtrusive, with a dose of self-irony...”- Dietrich Gastrock, Home of Rock **** (Feb 08, 2011)
