Anica Russo is a 20 year old pop artist and singer/songwriter, originally from Germany.
The half Croatian and half Italian artist began to play the guitar at the age of 4 and wrote her first songs at 7.
Growing up in a small village, she started early playing solo gigs and went busking through the streets of her hometown Oldenburg.
Her first release was at age 16 with DJ duo „Jones&Brock“. Their track „Join me“, released by WARNER Music, reached over 3.000.000 streams on Spotify. Refusing an offer from a talent scout from German „The voice kids“, Anica started to work on her fully self-written first EP „Felicity“ instead and got signed to UNIVERSAL MUSIC GERMANY soon after graduation from grammar school. In 2019, she went on tour through Germany and Vienna with the danish Platinum selling artist „Hugo Helmig“ performing her songs in front of an international audience. Her single „REBEL“ opened up several opportunities for Anica, as her first Radio live shows and TV appearances on German television. The track reached the top 120 in the German airplay charts and top 40 on one of Germany ́s most popular private radio stations in early 2020.
