Introducing Anna Mae Kelly, 17 year old singer songwriter from Kettering, UK.
At 8 years old, Anna had already unearthed her deep passion for music, getting involved in singing lessons and competitions. She started playing the guitar and writing her own material at the age of 13.
With her self learning drive and energy, which enabled her to learn playing the piano by ear, Anna hopes to release music that connects at a personal level while pursuing her studies at Musical Theatre College. Some of her influences in music include Freddie mercury, The 1975, Imagine Dragons, Frank Sinatra, Edith Piaf, Florence and the Machine, Adele, and Sam Smith.
You can check out her latest single "Waver" on this week's discovery list.

Stop caring what people think of you. They’re only really thinking about what people are thinking of them. We all live in a world where there is forced judgement but in reality, no one is really checking if you have lipstick on your teeth, or a stain on the jumper you’ve worn for the past three days. Enjoy life carefree.
