Anna Nalick (born March 30, 1984, in Temple City, California) is an American platinum-selling singer and songwriter. In addition to writing all of her own music, Nalick has been writing for other artists since the age of 15.Read More...
Starting in 2003, Nalick released her first studio produced album, entitled: “Wreck of the Day” in 2005. It featured the hit single “Breathe (2AM)” under the SonyMusic label. The song propelled to the top of the charts and sent Anna on a nearly four year tour around the world. Featuring her third hit single “Shine,” Nalick and SonyMusic released “The Shine EP.” Both “Wreck of the Day” and “The Shine EP” can still be heard widely on radio and television today, with “Breathe” being featured twice on the hit television drama “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Wanting to pursue a musical style free of label influence, Nalick decided to part ways with SonyMusic in 2010 and in 2011, released her first independently produced album: “Broken Doll & Odds & Ends”. Nalick describes the album as: “mostly acoustic with haunting and unusual instrumentation. I wanted to release the songs I wrote while I was with Sony before I move on to all new material. I liked the songs too much to just leave them all behind. Now I’m ready to explore new territory.”
Utilizing the unique sounds of toy piano, sitar, glockenspiel, oud, mandocello and sweeping string arrangements, “Broken Doll & Odds & Ends” features a wide range of instruments, performed by a very talented collection of musicians. Nalick’s unique storytelling ability and timeless sense of melody has gained even more notoriety with fans, selling over 30,000 copies during the album’s first month.

- Lyrics2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him, winter just wasn't my season"
Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
- LyricsDriving away from the wreck of the day
And the light's always red in the rear-view.
Desperately close to a coffin of hope
I'd cheat destiny just to be near you.
And if this is givin' up
- LyricsL.A. lights never shine quite as bright as in the movies
Still want to go
There's something here
In the way, in the way that we're constantly moving
Reminds you of home
- LyricsI'm sitting on a citadel
Making a point to waste my time
I'm walking on clouds of white
What if I fall?
- LyricsYou say you fell while holding diamonds in your hands
"It's your fault for running, holding diamonds," I said
And I offer no sympathy for that
I hear that it was you who died alone
Better off, I sparkle on my own
