Anna Vogelzang

Although she was born in Massachusetts and put her career into high gear in Pennsylvania, Anna Vogelzang now reps Madison with her nuanced take on indie folk. She uses various instruments and sparsely arranged percussion and strings, giving her songs a strong impact while leaving room for her signature vocals. With a solid addition to her discography released last year, her artistic dregs are far from spent.
