Anna Luisa soars in utopic hyperspace with interstellar synthscapes and optimistic songwriting in her debut solo album “Green,” an ambitious suite of shimmering summer-ready tracks that emphasize her craft as a healer, producer, and empathic collaborator.
“Green” invites listeners to Luisa’s “green place”—a new age refuge of lush landscapes and verdant soil, an oasis of collaborators and friends in the Los Angeles desert, where she lives and works. “I imagine us all chilling in a rich green ambiance of plants, herbs, birds, lizards… a conjured space to provide a mental and spiritual break from reality,” said Luisa.
Luisa is also a visual artist who produces her own videos and paints immersive environments that draw viewers into her lush, vibrant universe. These aesthetics extend to her sonic palette, evident in the warm analog synths and hymnal vocals that emanate from her music. Luisa also lends her work to further art forms—album opener “Offering” expands on music she produced for sci-fi video game “Jeep Jeep” and “Green Place” is derived from a composition made for contemporary dance artist Kevin Williamson.
Written while grieving the sudden passing of a close friend, Luisa set out to imagine a paradise for ancestors and friends through songs that could very well be heard in a dance floor or a new age wellness center. She chose the color green for its symbolism of growth, renewal, and abundance. “Green is the color of your heart chakra. I gaze inward towards my green place which rules the capacity to love, forgive, sympathize, grieve, give and receive,” Luisa said.
