A stirring message of transcendence …

Sincerely Anne, who has taken the music industry by storm with her haunting voice and heartfelt lyrics, has announced the release of a new single which, like She’s on Fire, offers a powerful message.

Transcend is about overcoming hardships – whatever form they may take in your life – and allowing yourself to grow in spite of adversity. ‘We all go through hardships and sometimes it feels as if we are in an endless loop of problems. This song is about growing stronger through suffering and allowing ourselves to grow positively from it – to become warriors,’ she explains.

As with her other songs, Anne’s inspiration for the lyrics came from personal experience and emotions – she lost a very close friend to crime and is in the process of overcoming serious health complications due to long-term tick-bite fever. But while the song is a message the artist essentially wrote to herself, it is also one that is universally relatable.

‘I understand that telling someone who is battling something that ‘you need rain for flowers to grow’ can seem invalidating when they are not standing in your shoes. But Transcend is more like an inner monologue – a message of encouragement, from you to you” she explains. “I wanted to grow some flowers from the rain I was experiencing in my life and in the process, I am hoping to inspire others to do the same.’

The single, which perfectly showcases her soothing yet powerful voice, will be complemented by a stunning video of which 99 per cent was shot underwater, but fans will have to wait until 17 September for the release of this breathtakingly beautiful music video.

Anne currently lives in Walkerville but grew up on a farm, where she was home-schooled until the age of thirteen. She is the youngest of five children and started playing the violin at a very young age. She had been playing the violin at events for nineteen years and singing in bands for five years before launching her solo career, which she regards as one of her biggest endeavours, in 2017.

She has enjoyed many career highlights over the years and has shared the stage with a number of big names in the music industry, including Connell Cruise, Ard Matthews, Joshua na die Reën, Jan Blohm, Amanda Strydom, Graeme Watkins Project, Shortstraw, Shaun Jacobs and more. She also featured in various orchestras, like the NWU PUK Orchestra and Rand Symphony Orchestra, both as concertmaster and violinist. She is a violin and piano tutor when she is not on stage.

Transcend is available on all digital platforms here.
