"Annalibera is a project from Des Moines, Iowa fronted by Anna Gebhardt, a classically trained vocalist and pianist who grew up in rural Nebraska. Manifested prior as a full band and now being explored as a solo project Annalibera is a distinct new voice in the Midwestern music landscape. With loveil Anna has stretched her music into contemplative soundscapes, using noisy atmospherics to contrast the soaring melodic qualities of her strong and beautiful voice. The haunted intimacy and lonely honesty of loveil feels unique and fresh to these well-worn ears. Meeting Anna through a mutual friend was a bit of a revelation in how much commonality was present between Anna's current musical path and Night-Peoples origins and evolution, something that makes it extra exciting and nice to be working with her. Special thanks to the Warm Gospel label for letting us re-release this wonderful music. Expect more great things from Annalibera in the near future." -Night People
