Anna Karena''s talent as a piano player, composer and singer are showcased on this highly anticipated solo debut album - "Everything Is In Your Mind". Her music blends live performances with elements of pop, ethnic flavor and 45 piece Symphony Orchestra recorded with The Bulgarian National Radio. The symphony instruments in combination with her piano playing and prominent drum beat lift up the intensity of the melodic compositions, and the almost cinematic images to a undeniably powerful music.
An incredible performance of a highly professional international team of 80 musicians from Sweden, Bulgaria and USA were involved in the recording of "Everything Is In Your Mind". They managed to pull together many different elements to create a unique and exciting, yet though provoking hybrid of Pop and World Music. Anna Karena''s overdubbed vocals float through each of these tracks with celestial lightness. Her breathy purr whipped up into a choir of ethereal beauty.

"With a voice as seductive as her looks, Anna Karena transports you to another world. Backed up by a symphony orchestra, Anna''s European roots infuse her music with the brightness of pop and the depth of jazz. Her piano compositions are enhanced by some of the most exciting and intense drumming since Buddy Rich put down his sticks. Anna''s music doesn''t just create a mood, it creates an entire environment that warmly surrounds you."
Jim Walker, New York
"How refreshing! I knew there was someone out there producing great music beyond following what seems like the cookie cutter mold of the industry. This music appears to take its roots from so many great sources (e.g. global, acid house, pop, jazz, Celtic, new age, and just about anything that is worth listening to nowadays). “Train to Copenhagen” has it all: beautifully haunting lyrics, a driving rhythm, layers of sound to tap, and that ‘wall of sound’ chorus to engulf its listener. I never get tired of listening to it. Though “Train to Copenhagen” is my favorite, the power, suspense and energy in “Everything is in Your Mind” takes me to another place…perfect for the next James Bond movie in my opinion. We really get a sense of what you can do with your voice in “My Feelings”; please let us taste more of that. Additionally, thank you for writing lyrics with some depth which evidently are beyond our former Mouseketeers/Pop stars here in the United States."
Patricia Fiorent, Sweden
"Anna Karena is amazingly talented musician whose music speaks to me beyond words. It gives depth and meaning to my thoughts, my instincts are brought to life. Her music radiates intensity and passion. Every time I turn it on my heart listens as well, so does my entire being as she seduces me. Her strength amounts around me within me, along with the feeling arising. It is more than just music, it is a moment being born, it is inspiration. It breeds life, it awakens my thoughts. I want to dream as I listen, I want to surrender to the longing in me. So I have one thing to say about Anna’s music; listen and live the emotion."
Vera Novotnni, Sofia
"Have you heard Anna Karena playing the piano? I had a chance. This young and absolutely adorable girl appears to be composing her own songs and writes deep lyrics filled with consistence. I was emotionally overwhelmed. My senses were overpowered by the intensity she displayed on stage. She was wonderful. One woman sitting alone by the piano, capturing an entire audience with her bare presence. She was the embodiment of innocence and strength. As the concert proceeded I was completely taken by her appearance on stage. She seemed to be inside a world of her own, but her entire being radiated the passion that come out of her music. A unique atmosphere spread around her, it was intimate and true. As the evening went on I was swept inside her magic while listening to her voice."
Brian Scott Fisher, London
"Don''t let the charming eyes of Anna Karena distract you from a style of music that is full of sentiment and emotion. She''s got large personality and it is this that comes over throughout her music and grabs you right from the first tune."
Rony Fitzgerald, New York
"She has depth in her music that is enchanting and seductive. Just by listening to it you immediately feel a presence that inflicts your senses. Anna Karena has an awareness that moves the audience and her voice blends into the melody and creates a harmony of its own. The spiritual quality in her music is striking. It is profound and intense, and has an inner glow."
Sebastian Kierulff Page, Copenhagen
"It''s great! The sound is very open, free but with direction. When I listen to her music I let my mind fly away to the massive landscapes. The music sounds like a great barrier overcome, an important decision made, giving determination....kind of like The Phoenix rising from the ashes with renewed power."
Paolo Masi, Milano
"Anna Karena has a hypnotic power on stage and I found myself watching her entire movement as she mastered the keys of the piano with an inner strength, conveying her feelings. She was working the piano with the whole of her being, expressing her emotions. The music was genuine, dramatic, flowing from within and releasing its passion every instant that went by. I forgot about everything else. She owned us all that evening. She was pursuing her dreams and was able to interpret so we could all feel it. I was moved by her performance. As the concert came to an end, I wanted to remain seated an extra minute and just breath in her music with all my senses. Anna Karena is majestic in her appearance, a true artist. She plays her music with an ardour that seduces the audience and bolds them captured by her grace."
