Anna Coogan
Anna Coogan began her music career at a young age studying opera, which eventually landed her at Das Mozartuem in Salzburg, Austria. There, in addition to opera, she learned Austrian German, Tirolian Italian, and true meaning of the word heimweh (homesickness). She returned to the US in 2001 and obtained a degree in fisheries biology before turning to songwriting. Now celebrating her tenth year as a performing songwriter, Coogan has released five critically acclaimed full- length records and toured extensively around the US, UK, and Europe. Anna is an intense and prolific songwriter who's work is "sweet and simply divine" (Maverick). She has been compared to Emmy Lou Harris and Neko Case. Coogan currently lives in upstate New York and tours with songwriting partners JD Foster (Calexico, Patty Griffin) and Willie B (Jamie Lidell, Johnny Dowd.)

I'm a musician, writer, and editor. I've done way too many things over the years in publishing and the music business: I've written songs since I was a teenager, played with the band Heavy Wood in the San Francisco area, and made three solo records. In 2008 my song "Fly" won a grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. I was the founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine and have interviewed a very long list of great musicians, from Jerry Garcia to Joni Mitchell to Ani DiFranco to Pete Seeger. Wrote three books on music, and edited many more. Reported for NPR's All Things Considered on everything from a concert hall in Indiana Amish country to a rock band in Bangalore to the new world of online recording. Started a songwriter concert series. Played tabla in a TV commercial in India.

All this has been very much unplanned--one project and medium leading to another--and yet in retrospect all makes sense: it's all about words and music, combining in ever-changing ways and viewed from countless angles. Hence the name of this website. And of my Words and Music record label. And Words and Music Songwriter Showcase. And so on.
