Calgary, Alberta born and raised ANNIKA has been engaging and entertaining audiences around the world since 2014 as the lead singer of the CCMA-nominated country-pop duo Leaving Thomas. Her debut solo single, "I Really Don't Want To," was added to over 20 Canadian country radio stations, reached No.33 on the CBC Country Top 40 chart, has been in the Top 40 at Mediabase for five consecutive weeks, and has been in the Top 50 on the Billboard Country Chart for four weeks. ANNIKA was also featured in the Billboard MRC Canadian Music Newsletter (July 2021) . ANNIKA has co-written over 100 songs to date with Nashville heavy hitters such as Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Phil Barton, Brian White, Patricia Conroy, and most famously, Liz Rose, and has performed at incredible venues with Leaving Thomas such as Boots and Hearts, Country Thunder, Calgary Stampede, Rockin’ River Fest, and many more. She is taking a new musical direction since moving on from the country-pop duo by releasing her first full length solo album, Stand Still. The project is a departure from her previous work and showcases a more mature, introspective ANNIKA, highlighting her talents as a musician, specifically as a piano player. The project will be broken down into two EPs and one deluxe album, delivering a total of 14 tracks within 12 months. ANNIKA is here to chat about & share her 2 new singles: "Encore" a duet with chart-topping, Platinum-selling, JUNO, and CCMA award-winning Canadian country star Brett Kissel AND "Love Looks LIke You".
