Anna Lundqvist Music

 

BIOGRAPHY

I’m born in 1977 in Stockholm but I’m raised in a small town called Mellerud in west of Sweden. I’m educated at music high school at SundstaÄlvkullegymnasiet in Karlstad and the musicians program at Skurup Folkhögskola. I graduated year 2000 and have been working profesionally as a jazz vocalist and composer since. Anna Lundqvist Quintet are my main project. Together with ALQ I’ve released five albums: 2009 ‘Borderline fiesta’. In 2010 the second, ‘City’. October 2012 we released a third cd, ‘Before you I was almost fine’. April 2015, we had our 10 year anniversary with an album to go with it: ‘TEN’. ALQ released their fifth album ‘MEWE’ (Prophone/NAXOS) Sept 2017. A huge succes world wide and on top of that: MEWE and ALQ got a nomination for “jazz of the year 2018” at the prestigious Manifestgalan, Stockholm.

Besides ALQ I also lead Anna Lundqvist Lisboa Cinco, a band from Lisbon, Portugal where I work and spend as much time as possible. I also have a duo together with pianist Jonas André, that released its debut album during the “spring of Corona”, May 2020. Read more about these groups in the meny.

I’m dividing my time between living in Vänersborg, a small Town 90km north of Gothenburg and my dear Lisbon. I also work part time as a artistic director at Vänersborg Jazz Academy (talent development for young musicians), at Yardhouse studio (Sthlm), United voice (Sthlm) and freelance in temporary musical projects. I also work as a lecturer in vocal techniques, improvisation and composing, both in Sweden and Portugal at universities and other organisations.
