    We’re pleased to welcome Anna Coogan & Willie B to The Rockwell stage. After composing several original scores for historic silent films in their hometown of Ithaca, NY, the duo began layering operatic vocals and ethereal guitar over aggressive drums and synthesizers—moving into uncharted waters that blur the lines between opera, film noir, and rock. Their live performances have been described as “enthralling, beguiling” by the Rheinische Post (Dusseldorf) and simply, that they “blew away the crowd” by thterrortime.com

    Coogan’s edgy and engaging live performances have been hailed as a “festival highlight” by The Times of London and “glorious” by Glasgow Metro. Boston born and classically trained in Austria, she spent her twenties in Seattle, busking among fishmongers in Pike Place Market before filling larger venues in the region. Her music has been featured on ABC TV, KEXP, the BBC, RTE 1 (Irish National Radio), and WDR 4 (Cologne, Germany). After her move to New York state in 2011, she co-wrote and toured a record with JD Foster (Calexico, Patty Griffin), and joined Americana-punk veteran Johnny Dowd on recent albums in addition to live performances at Lincoln Center and throughout Europe.
