In the year that sees Ana Popovic celebrating 20 years as a touring musician, the award winning guitar player, singer and songwriter releases ‘Live for LIVE‘, an exciting hour and a half + CD and DVD demonstrating why she’s proudly looking back at a career of thousands of shows over five continents. The high-energy concert showcases not only Ana’s mesmerizing guitar skills by also a fabulous band, successfully merging musical styles. Ana’s passion on stage is so evident that the title sums it up, this is what she lives for.
About the recording Popovic says:
“Playing live is the best feeling in the world, it’s like sacred time to me. A moment my mind is free. I’m one with my guitar and when the music takes me over, it’s like fuel to my soul. My drive has always been the unconditional love to play my instrument. As a performing artist you gotta push your limits. It’s ultimately about what YOU want to achieve. And, in order to do that, you need to surround yourself with musicians that are searching for the same. Having a great band on stage with me is absolutely necessary. I get my inspiration from how well my band plays. Always striving for higher heights. This live album features an evening in France with my 6-piece band. We tried to capture some of the joy and magic that a live show brings. Can you feel it?
She’ll let you decide! Popovic can be found in a select group of excellent modern blues guitar players. She has appeared on the covers of Vintage Guitar and Guitar Player magazine. Added as the only female artist at six nation-wide Experience Hendrix tours. NPR Weekend Edition praised her “Fiery technique on the Stratocaster”. Nearly all of her albums reached the top of the Billboard Blues Charts. Ana and her six-piece band have toured tirelessly, sharing stages with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa and many others.
