Some of the best blues music in the world has always been about suffering but more importantly, it has also been about survival. Blues singer-guitarist ANA POPOVIC is something unexpected in a genre known for it’s gritty, down home sensibility. Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, POPOVIC was raised on the sounds of ALBERT KING and MUDDY WATERS thanks to her father and –in fairly short order – picked up the guitar as he did. It was the blues that gave POPOVIC her first lessons in the English language. Once the language was mastered, the young guitar slinger was at a loss for what to say. All of that changed when the MILOSEVIC regime of her homeland came under fire from around the world leaving the country and it’s citizens marked by the misdeeds of their leader. It was at this time that POPOVIC was a stranger in a strange land – Holland – but it was here where the young Serbian sharpened her musicality and found her voice. The results of her extensive soul search resulted in her 2007 album STILL MAKING HISTORY – a catalog of songs that told the story of her country and it’s people. Now she is back with her latest offering ‘BLIND FOR LOVE’ (ECLECTO GROOVE RECORDS) – a most optimist blues collection that speaks of the good things that people tend to ignore in life. “I had decided to go for something a little more universal for this latest album.” Says POPOVIC “I started to ask myself ‘If I am going to make one more record, what will I want to leave as a message to all of my fans?’ I wanted to make a one-statement album about my life and what is really important in my life and the result was BLIND FOR LOVE. The album is all about love and all kinds positive and negative stories.” (READ MORE)
