Houston, Texas native Annika Chambers, like most great American singers, began singing as a child in the Southern Baptist church. Though Gospel music is her mother tongue, it is in the Blues that she found her true voice. After winning the Blues Music Award for Soul-Blues Female Artist of the Year in 2019, she gave us her third release entitled “Kiss My Sass” on the VizzTone Label Group. It debuted at #4 on the Billboard Blues Chart and won the 2020 Living Blues Award for Best Southern Soul album.
Since her first release entitled “Making My Mark” in 2014, Annika has enjoyed a successful international recording and touring career across the Americas and Europe. She can be seen giving her powerful and dynamic performances at such festivals as the North Atlantic Blues Festival, Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas, Montreal International Jazz Festival, Lucerne Blues Festival Switzerland, Santa-Maria Blues Festival Portugal and the Poretta Soul Festival Italy and the Mississippi Delta Blues Festival Brazil.
