Anna Cordell - Nobody Knows Us

Anna Cordell has always been a ‘maker’. From her youngest years spent singing and writing folk songs on her nylon string guitar, to the first stitches of her design work, and all the way into motherhood, Cordell has a natural flair for creation.

After taking an almost decade long hiatus from music making - a period in which she became a mother to five children and began working on her now thriving clothing label - Anna is now making her return to music, set to release her first full-length record Nobody Knows Us’ on February 14.

Recorded in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Ben Edwards (Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams, Julia Jacklin) ‘Nobody Knows Us’ is an album that wears its heart on its sleeve.

Taking inspiration from folk writers of the 60s and 70s, from Sandy Denny to Nick Drake and Sibylle Baier, as well as more contemporary counterparts like Midlake and Weyes Blood, Anna has created a collection of songs that stay true to her belief in the value and power of art.

‘Nobody Knows Us’ explores the space within us that is separate to the wider world. The internal resources that no external factor can control, and the freedom that comes with that preservation. Following a writing process that saw Anna through the grief of lamenting a loved one, as well as the joy and energy of new life, this record grapples with ideas of meaning and purpose, asking questions that only the rawness of life and death can evoke.
