Nuria is the stage name of Tasmanian indie pop, singer-songwriter, Anna Maynard. Exploring deepest desires, loneliness and the mystery of existence, her keyboard-based tunes have a moody and atmospheric quality, blended with soaring vocals and catchy beats. Classically trained in singing and piano, her music centres around voice and keys, textured with electronic and synthetic sounds bringing new depth to her former more acoustic style. Anna released her debut album Growing Daisies in 2014 which was featured on local and national radio and has performed in venues and festivals throughout Australia including the Cygnet Folk Festival, Northern Territory Top Half Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival, Tennant Creek Desert Harmony Festival and at Tasmania’s MONA. A break from performing over recent years has allowed introspection and a deeper sound to emerge. A project under the name Nuria is born. “Ache” is the first song to be revealed in this captivating new sound.
