Anna LaPrad was born and raised in Rock Hill, South Carolina. She has had a deep passion for music from a young age and grew up singing in church. At age 19, Anna bought her first guitar and shifted from writing poetry to writing songs. “Music has always been the voice of my emotions – it’s how I cope with any problems that life throws at me,” says Anna.
In the summer of 2006, Anna started singing competitively in and around Rock Hill. She won first place in the local Colgate County Showdown and went on to win several other competitions in the following years.
After high school graduation, Anna attended college and studied psychology, keeping bigger dreams in the back of her mind. She took piano classes, while minoring in music, and found the time to take guitar lessons on the side.
Through playing the Nashville area, Anna has already managed to build a large fan base. “I’m definitely learning what it means to pay your dues and I wouldn’t trade one single second of it for anything else in the world. I can honestly say that I’m loving my life right now and wherever it may lead, I’m just here to enjoy the ride.”
