Heavily influenced by her parents love of music from the 70s and 80s, Anna picked up the guitar upon entering junior high. In just a few short years, she was turning heads with her slapping style of acoustic guitar play and crystal-clear voice while performing at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas in 2018 at the tender age of 19. She also participated in the "Japan Nite US tour 2018" , performing in 6 cities, including New York and San Francisco and selling over 200 CDs on site.

After returning to Japan, her American-released CD "alright" was released in her hometown record shops, which led to radio plays all over Japan. In August of the same year, she made her debut with Imperial Records/TEICHIKU ENTERTAINMENT with the 4 song "at ONE" album. The single "alright" became a power play in 22 cities across Japan. In January 23, 2019, with her second EP "at TWO" Anna continues to develop as a solo artist, grooving along with her established sound from the previous album while continuing to evolve.

Anna’s 1st album MATOUSIC was released in 2020, with the single RIDE ON WEEKEND being selected as the theme song for WOWOW original drama “Kasumi Arimura’s Day Off”. On the second anniversary of her debut, MATOUSIC came out as an analog LP.

Her 4th EP 『at FOUR』came out, containing J-WAVE’s TOKIO HOT 100 commercial song LOVE YOUR LOVE, STRIKING GOLD, co-written with Andy Platts, frontman for British R&B band Mamas Gun, SEVEN RULE, used on FujiTV and  +IMAGINATION, which has seen heavy rotation on FM802.

In March of 2022, she released her first full album in 2 years, TICKETS.
