Cat & Bird combines a quirky pop style with elements of acoustic balladry for a collection of guitar driven indie songs and stories. Recorded between Roundhead Studios and her home studio in Auckland, Anna co-produced the album with guitarist Ned Ngatae.

While a lot has changed in her life and songwriting approach since the release of her 2008 debut album The Lake, Anna's beautiful voice and melodies remain a constant, making the progression both a powerful and pleasant one. There is a shift toward louder guitars and bigger dynamics this time around, and an emphasis on the sound of a band surrounding the songs.

Where The Lake collected moments from Anna's life to date and were presented acoustic guitar in hand, Cat & Bird shines with the talents of Anna's band: drummer Riki Gooch (Eru Dangerspiel, Trinity Roots), bass player Mike Hall (Nightchoir, Pluto) and keyboardist/vocalist extraordinaire LA Mitchell (Dave Dobbyn, The Dukes).
