MULTI-CULTURAL: "I am a Latin-American Jazz Vocalist from Motown!, - a naturalized Canadian of 1/2 Mexican, 1/2 Scotch-Irish-English heritage. It is only in my music, that this rich heritage flows together freely..."

At the Beach in Parksville, BC
Anna Acevedo Lyman and Bassist Steve 'Swingman' Sutton

A STYLE AND VOICE ALL HER OWN. ;  Anna Lyman grew up in (Detroit) Motown! and was influenced by stars like Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles, but a perk of being Latin-American is that as a young child, she was exposed to the Great Brazilian Gurus, A.C. Jobim and Sergio Mendes. A love of Jazz and Brass came from being exposed to Ramsey Lewis, and Henry Mancini, as well as Jazz Musicals in Old Movies.   

She has been described by renowned Jazz Drummer, Keith Copeland as a "tremendous talent". Keith also said: There are a lot of singers out there... Some of them have phrasing, some of them have tone, some can swing,   YOU HAVE IT ALL! (Keith Copeland, 2003). Juno Award winner Rick Kilburn described her vocal ability as "just like the old masters". Anna's lush vocals go straight to the heart whether she swings or broods over a ballad.
