Anna Crumley is a versatile vocalist, arranger, composer, performer, and educator based in the Long Beach area. Hailed for her “beautiful tone,” “ability to sell the song,” and “swinging lines that embody Ella and Sarah,” she brings the stage alive wherever she goes. Anna is versed in many musical styles including jazz, choral, classical, R&B and pop.
Anna is pursuing a Bachelor of Music (BM) in Jazz Studies Voice Performance and a BM in Choral Music Education at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music. She is also an Ella Fitzgerald Foundation scholar.
Anna currently sings and is the soprano section leader of Pacific Standard Time (PST) and the Bob Cole Chamber Choir; the two premier vocal ensembles at CSULB. With PST, she won first place at the Monterey Next Gen festival and performed at the JEN 2020 conference in New Orleans. In 2020, Anna also toured with the Bob Cole Chamber Choir to Salt Lake City, Utah. She had the privilege of performing the “Sacred Veil” in the Mormon Tabernacle, under the direction of esteemed composer and conductor, Eric Whitacre.
Her love for performing has led her to sing twice at the Roseville Jazz Festival. At the festival, Anna debuted several of her jazz arrangements for an audience that “loved her performances.” Anna also gigs with local LA musicians, and has a neo-soul inspired guitar-voice duo called “DeissMarie.”
Along with performing, Anna has a private voice studio of her own. Since August of 2020, she also volunteers weekly at Valencia High School. Over Zoom, she leads their vocal jazz and classical choirs in virtual warmups and gives jazz and classical voice lessons to students.
