Ana Luísa Ramos’ is an award winning Brazilian singer-songwriter based in St John´s, NL.
Her sophomore album “Amanheceu” earned her the 2021 MusicNL Jazz Artist of the Year award and a nomination for Global Artist of the Year. Her most recent single “Clouds” is a nostalgic upbeat song that speaks of long roads, vast horizons, new beginnings, and unconditional love.
Ana´s music is influenced by Brazilian Bossa Nova composers, such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, and the greatest of North American Jazz, such as Ella Fitzgerald. The thoughtful lyrics and beautiful arrangements combine to create a unique and contemporary sound in which the Brazilian tropical sun is reflected on the stormy and windy landscapes of Newfoundland.
For the last two decades, Ana has been working in the classical and popular fields and has performed in Europe, South, Central, and North America. Throughout her career, she has recorded over 15 albums for different projects. In 2016 Ana released her first solo album, entitled "Um", which was followed by “Amanheceu”, released in 2021.
Ana has also actively worked on her project with singer-songwriter Eric Taylor Escudero, Ana & Eric. The duo released their debut self-titled EP through The Citadel House in November 2020 and Our House From Here, which earned them three 2023 MusicNL nominations and one 2024 ECMAs nomination.
Ana´s new album Solaris, recorded in Brazil, Canada and USA, will be released on April 19, 2024.
