Anna Lyman Trio

Label: Indie-ALM
since circa 2005
Anna (Acevedo) Lyman is 1/2 Mexican, through her Father. She sings in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, English, and French. Anna grew up listening to her Mother's Brazilian records, her Stepdad's Caribbean pop, and Detroit Motown Soul. And then there are the Brazilian family members! These wide influences have uniquely shaped her songwriting. Beautiful tone, big round notes, the use of her entire 4-octave range, and irresistible phrasing and rhythm are among her many strengths.

Unforgettable!. Sparkling, fizzy songwriting spiked with Tropical and Motown accents.

Shows are memorable both for content, and Anna’s unique ability to reach across a crowded room and touch the heart. Appears with keyboard player, Bassist, Drummer, and Saxophone or Percussion player.

Anna's music includes her own compositions, an exciting combination of Latin, Jazz and Soul, or Latin Blues, which she calls "bluenote latin jazz". Styles range from the softest sweetest ballad, to energizing Swing, Salsa, Samba, and a dance-inspiring Latin Blues.

"She has a voice like melted chocolate", Goodi Niosi, The Harbour City Star, Nanaimo.

"Sensual, melodious...makes us think we should order champagne...." Jan DeGrass, The Coast Reporter

"Lyman has a powerful voice with a genuine passion that shines through on every note...a distinctly personal perspective" Alexandria Stuart, The Harbour City Star.

"Here's a new voice to watch!,,, an exciting jazz vocalist is making herself known… Anna Lyman is a geniune jazz singer...powerful scat vocal... an unusual and compelling voice. She's gained another fan!" Richard Bourcier, Jazz Review.

There are a lot of singers out there, Shirley Horn, Blossom Dearie... Some of them have phrasing, some of them have tone, some can swing; You have it all!, Keith Copeland,

“You’ve managed to sing every song I’ve ever loved…” a Fan
