Accomplished musician, vocalist and songwriter, ANNIKA’s ability to capture audiences comes not just from her musical charisma, but from a refreshingly authentic and comedic personality.

Since 2014, she has powerfully entertained audiences around the world as the lead singer of CCMA-nominated ‘Leaving Thomas’ duo, and now, as a highly anticipated solo artist.

Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, ANNIKA has taken a new musical direction since moving on from the country-pop duo. Inspired by artists such as Elton John, Carole King and Alicia Keys, ANNIKA’s new sound combines her love of country songwriting with heartfelt piano playing and melodic vocals.

iHeart Radio Future Star and Boots & Hearts semi-finalist, ANNIKA has been recognized for her talent and outstanding contributions to Canadian country music. With multiple YYC award nominations and her debut solo single, “I Really Don’t Want To,” securing a spot in CBC Country’s Top 40 chart for five consecutive weeks and Billboard Country’s Top 50 chart for four weeks, Annika’s journey as a solo artist has only just begun.
