Chicago, IL (PressExposure) March 29, 2012 -- Chicago songstress Anna Fermin has released her new EP SOMEDAY AFTERNOON. The digital release is available today on iTunes, Amazon, and her website. The CD can be purchased from CD Baby and http://www.annafermin.com. Her first solo album, THE CONTENDER, has been digitally re-released and is also available today.
Driven by the title track, "Someday Afternoon" delivers a sunny set of roots pop. From her trademark alto husk to her honey-soaked highs, Anna's inspired vocals and emotionally charged lyrics make this five-song collection the perfect listen for any summer someday-afternoon of the week.
With the beautiful production of Doug McBride (Veruca Salt, Rachel Yamagata) and songs co-penned by Aaron Barber, the EP also includes the tracks "What It Could Be" and "Love Blooms"; simple, sweet love songs filled with ache and anticipation of rediscovered and unlikely love. "Everyday Heroes" and "Everything Changes" center on themes of turning life's inevitable changes into something wonderful.
Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune has called Anna "One of Chicago's most treasured voices," and Peter Margasak of the Chicago Reader says she delivers "...a perfect balance of grace and gusto."
An award-winning singer/songwriter, Anna is well known as the front woman for the Chicago alt-country band Trigger Gospel. The band has released five albums, including the Jay Bennett produced "Oh, the Stories We Hold." Her first solo album "The Contender" was originally released in 2009 and includes the notable songs "Dragging On" and "Lovely."
Spring and summer tour dates include Chicago area shows on 3/29 at Evanston SPACE, 4/6 at Fitzgerald's, and 6/9 at Old Town School of Folk Music, with more summer dates to be announced.
