Anna Atkinson is a composer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who lives in Montreal. She studied the viola at the University of Victoria and has since contributed, both as creator and performer, to dozens of projects in music, theatre, film and dance. She also gives lessons in violin, viola, voice and songwriting.
In October 2020, Anna released the self-titled debut album for her new project, Linaire. Using uncluttered electronic beats, ethereal synths, incandescent strings and poetically lucid lyrics to explore, Linaire explores complex emotions, anxiety, ancestry and presence.
She is currently collaborating on a new project with theatre company Joe, Jack et John and is working on the second Linaire album.
