Anna Nalick @ Hotel Cafe (02/23/2011)

Anna Nalick at Hotel Cafe

Anna Nalick played in front of a packed house last night as part of her residency at Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, CA.

Though it’s been a while since her last official release, she’s been keeping busy by writing new music. She’s currently working on an album with producer Nathan Chapman (who has also produced Taylor Swift) that’s set to be released this year.

Throughout the night she played several new songs such as “Words”, “The Lullaby Singer” and “Break Me Open.”

In between songs, she read some excerpts from her journal and chatted up the crowd, keeping them engaged throughout the entire night. Halfway into her set, she sat at piano for a few songs and admitted she was still getting used to using the pedals while playing. Knowing her pianist was just off stage, she jokingly admitted feeling a little pressured.

Closing the show with her breakout hit, “Breathe (2 AM)”, Anna proved throughout the night that she’s a singer/songwriter who still has a bright future ahead of her.

Anna Nalick’s residency at Hotel Cafe ends in two weeks, with her final show on Wednesday, March 2nd.
