Bio

One of seven children with a wide range of musical tastes all around her, Aneessa was born in Saint-Étienne in eastern central France.
Aneessa met up with Motown producer Michael B. Sutton (Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross), for business propositions for a media company she was working for. This business relationship blossomed into love commitment, and eventually the two began writing and producing new material together, with Aneessa turning her skills towards smooth jazz interpretations.
She debuted with a cover of Soul II Soul’s, “Back to Life,” which cracked the Top 10 of Billboard Magazine’s “Smooth Jazz” chart.
“Just to Be with You”, is about their long-distance, interfaith, loving relationship which bloomed while being far away from each other, and ending up with Aneesa eventually going to visit Michael, and never returning home again.
Her latest single “Gonna Be Alright”. The feel-good anthem is styled in the iconic sound of the soulful music 70’s and is brimming with the raw charisma that the era embodied. She notes that her work is for all the dreamers out there. Ultimately a means of giving hope to her listeners in a time when we are in need of a little positivity the most.

Back to Life by Aneessa

"As a true Renaissance woman of the post-modern era, French dance and pop music diva Aneessa has mastered the craft of artistic continuity through self-discovery and a courageous reinvention of her image. She has recently teamed up with the legendary Motown producer Michael B Sutton for a new version of Back to Life by Soul II Soul.

Using a template molded around contemporary jazz, Sutton is able to build a magical landscape that accentuates an entirely new vibe than the original version of Back to Life. Musically, we are brought to an oasis of exotic instrumentation opening with an inspiring horizon of brass, keyboards, synthesizers and percussion that is wonderfully brought together with an enchanting bassline and an organic approach to sound. Aneessa�s soulful vocal performance is perfectly in tune with this sophisticated offering.

She is able to embody her present-day reinvention through a theme song that speaks boldly about where she is at in life. Aneessa tastefully takes the vocal lead with a heartfelt chorale, backing harmonies and overdubs, as she is able to make Back to Life her own. Overall, Back to Life by Aneessa is a celebrative melody and a marvelous way to turn an all-time favorite into something new that can be enjoyed by our present generation."

'''Back to Life' est la d�claration parfaite pour moi en ce moment", d�clare Aneessa. "�a colle avec ma vie - je suis une fille des ann�es 90 ! Les nouveaux styles tels que le reggaeton et la dance �taient importants � l'�poque et j'ai ador� refaire cette chanson � mon image : douce et sensuelle."

"En outre, tant de choses sont nouvelles dans ma vie ", poursuit Aneessa. "nouvelle vie, nouveau pays. J'ai enregistr� mon quatri�me et dernier album - R&B en fran�ais - en 2015 puis donn� mes derniers concerts en tant que Lady Aneessa en Italie et � Paris. Maintenant que j'ai d�m�nag� � Los Angeles, en Californie, je me sens de nouveau en vie... comme si tout �tait possible. Cela faisait, tout de m�me, trois longues ann�es que je n�avais pas sorti de nouvelle musique ! Mais maintenant, je suis tellement motiv�e pour �crire de belles m�lodies et de belles paroles � partir de toutes les vibrations positives que j'ai re�u en vivant ici parmi tant d'autres artistes cr�atifs. �a m'a donn� de la force et je suis si heureuse de pouvoir continuer ma carri�re ici."

Aneessa, qui est �galement �ditrice du magazine international d'artistes ind�pendants "Pump It Up Magazine", a h�te de se pr�senter au public am�ricain et au-del�, � travers une s�rie de spectacles plus intimes.
