Singer/songwriter Ann-Marita’s road to success has led her on a winding path from a humble upbringing in rural Norway, to Sweden via Iowa, on to Los Angeles and Australia...then back to California. Her previous two solo albums; “Ann-Marita” (2004) and “Intuition” (2007) have garnered glowing reviews, award nominations and airplay in all four of her home countries.

Being praised for her outstanding voice and stage presence as well as her exceptional songwriting, Ann-Marita has traveled far and wide, playing world-renowned festivals, fairs, clubs, coffeehouses and makeshift stages on flatbed trucks. Ann-Marita's new 5-song EP "The Purple Ribbon Sessions" was released in March 2014, and continues to show her broad range of influences from contemporary country, Americana, rock and traditional folk.

This also marks Ann-Marita's first venture as producer and instrumentalist on her own recordings. The EP contains Ann-Marita's most requested song to date; "Karoline with a K"; an ode to a brave immigrant ancestor who posthumously inspired her to move out into the world at the age of fifteen.
