Anna St. Louis On World Cafe

  • Listen:
    Anna St. Louis on World Cafe As the winter chill sets in, today's guest on the World Cafe plays a set of warm, inviting songs. It's Anna St. Louis, and her new album, If Only There Was a River, captures a nostalgic feel that combines some of her favorite songwriters, like Neil Young and Willie Nelson. She joins host Talia Schlanger today to talk about the making of the record, which was produced by fellow Kansas City native, Kevin Morby. And Anna performs live in the studio. On the next World Cafe.
Willie Nelson, Mazzy Star and Neil Young have all inspired this LA transplant to make inviting music that carries an air of mystery, nostalgia and ease.
Willie Nelson, Mazzy Star and Neil Young have all inspired today's guest to make inviting music that carries an air of mystery, nostalgia and ease. Anna St. Louis started writing songs when she moved to LA about five years ago. Her debut full-length album, If Only There Was a River, came out earlier this year. It was produced by Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Kevin Morby, who Anna knows from her hometown of Kansas City, Mo.
