Anna's most recent pieces include, Four Tributes to 4am for orchestra, electronics and visuals by Eleanor Meredith , and HandsFree, a PRS NewMusic20x12 Commission for the National Youth Orchestra, which has been called "mesmerising" and "exhilarating" by The Times, "a tour de-force" by the Guardian and "wicked" by the Independent and was recently performed to great acclaim at the Proms.

Alongside her acoustic commissions, Anna has signed to Moshi Moshi Records who released her debut EP, Black Prince Fury in October 2012.

Her single Nautilus was Single of the Year on Drowned in Sound.
Anna performs with her band Horsebox and has performed as part of festivals such as Ether and Soundwave as well as broadcasts on Radio 1 and 6 Music.
