Anouschka is a Swedish/American singer songwriter. 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. Her songs are played worldwide in various genres. 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 moves into afro-pop. Western songwriting meets East African urban beats on her new album "Shine". The album aims to help popularize Kenyan music abroad while helping orphans and the poor locally. Tracks have already been featured in Kenya on TV and radio. Anouschka is also devoted to wildlife causes. The new album includes a reggae version of "Dying to be Free" -the campaign song in 60 countries this year for the Global March to Save the African Lion from canned 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)
