GUITAR LUMINARY, ANA POPOVIC ANNOUNCES ‘TRILOGY’ HER BIGGEST PROJECT TO DATE
‘In an Era where most are skeptic about the current state and future of the music industry, I wanted TRILOGY to tell a different story. The record biz might be broken and Spotify might rip us off, but that can’t keep an artist down. Creativity is very much alive, and music is the celebration of life.’ – ANA POPOVIC
Belgrade-born, Memphis Based guitarist Ana Popovic is about to WOW her fans with her most ambitious project yet. With TRILOGY (out May 20, 2016) Ana will release albums that comprise of twenty-three blues, jazz, and funk tunes. TRILOGY is produced by Grammy Award winner Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Carlos Santana), Grammy Award winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy) and Delfeayo Marsalis, one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Guest appearances include Joe Bonamassa,Robert Randolph, Bernard Purdie (The Purdie Shuffle), Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), rapper Al Capone and many others.
TRILOGY shines a spotlight on Ana’s musicianship. Whether it’s through Ana’s agile guitar shredding or with her soulful voice. The three volume release has been a labor of love it shows. Recording and putting together such a large collection of songs across several genres was no easy task. Ana demands the best when it comes to her music, and this album holds up to her own standards, and industry standards there. Every musician on the album is such a master at their own instrument that throughout the record, Ana and her band are effortlessly able to transition from genre to genre. Ana describes TRILOGY as her biggest career accomplishment to date.
Ana Popovic is the kind of musician that embraces different musical styles. And, as if it wasn’t already obvious with the release of TRILOGY; Ana loves a challenge. She is not afraid to take her music in new directions. All the while polishing and perfecting the musical stylings that she’s already known for. This is one of the many qualities that sets Ana apart from the rest. There’s no doubt that TRILOGY is Ana in charge.
