June 1, 2019: "Silly People," By Anna Soltys
Anna Soltys is a musician and visual artist living in Chicago. Anna spent the first part of her childhood in Poland followed by six years in Paris before she moved to Chicago, her self-proclaimed home, and it’s this cross-cultural awareness that may awaken the type of delivery that is so unique to her sound. Her band, Anna Soltys and the Familiar, is a modern folk-rock band with an entrancing new sound, and her poetic lyrical content fills the heart with an awareness of the self we could all use in larger doses.
Anna’s music explores and embodies elements of pain, strength, honesty and sorrow. From start to finish, lyrically driven, simple melodies leave you with a sense of colorful melancholy.
