Anna Shoemaker’s debut EP ‘East Side’ was launched a few weeks ago and has been celebrated ever since. The New Yorker effortlessly draws upon inspiration from an amalgamation of genres, from indie-pop, RnB, to alt-rock and hip-hop to bring a fresh new sound.

Raised in Philadelphia, based in New York and her new EP ‘East Side’ recorded in Nashville, Shoemaker has an elevated sound that appeals wherever it may be heard. ‘East Side’ was produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer JT Daly (K.Flay’s ‘Blood In The Cut’).

Shoemaker began to release her original music this Summer following her famous mash-up of some of her favorite hip-hop tracks, ‘No Lie, Bitch Don’t Kill My Cocoa Butter Kisses’ which was recorded on her bedroom floor and amassed over 750K streams on Soundcloud.

‘East Side’ transcends across different moods and there is a track out there for any mentality you should wake up in. From the recent single ‘Too High’ to ‘What am I doing to me?’, and ‘Liquor Store‘ the 23-year-old singer-songwriter encapsulates the highs and lows of falling in love with poetic ease.

Shoemaker has been busy opening slots for Bishop Briggs and Donna Missal, as well as headlining gigs at NYC staples such as Ludlow House, Bowery Electric, and Rockwood Music Hall.

If you’re in New York, you can catch Anna Shoemaker at Pete’s Candy Store on October 11th.
