Anna Paddick is an accomplished singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. Together with Ben Paddick (guitar), Christian Meyer (guitar), and Alan Dinh (bass/synth) she formed AP&TS.
"Music allows me to sweep aside everything that clouds my judgment, and to present myself as I purely am. It’s also the most socially acceptable way I have found, to stand up and say, 'Hey everyone! I reckon this might be the way it is.'
For me there is nothing more appealing than connecting, understanding and being understood. When I sing I am inviting strangers to know me. That can be an awkward thing to do otherwise. Sure I can say “Hi, I’m Anna. Nice to meet you.” But how long are you supposed to know someone before you bare your soul? Maybe more than three minutes. Singing is time travel. It allows me to expose the essence of who I am, within the time frame of a song.”
Anna Paddick & The Spekulators’ music has been described as alternative, lyrical pop and sits comfortably among artists like Sia & Lior. Uplifting choruses energise their audiences and insightful lyrics combine to create music that offers a unique perspective.
