Anna Lina Hirschgänger is a first-year student studying Vocals at BIMM Institute Hamburg. We caught up with Anna to find out what drove her decision to study vocals, what music she is currently coveting and her impression of BIMM Institute Hamburg so far.
WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO AT THE MOMENT?
In general, I would say that I am really into Indie and Folk, but I also listen to a little bit of Pop music. At the moment, I am mostly listening to a Swedish Indie-Folk Band called The Bland.
I first saw them at the Reeperbahn Festival a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love with their music. I really recommend having a listen to their songs ‘Wanderer’ and ‘Beautiful Distance’.
I am also listening to Sophie And The Giants a lot! Their songs have so much energy and just transfer some kind of strength to you when you’re listening to them.
Besides that, I really love Mallrat, King Princess, Bastille and Years & Years (especially their acoustic version of ‘If You‘re Over Me’– it’s incredibly beautiful).
And of course, you can’t forget The Cure!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT HAMBURG?
What I really love about Hamburg is that we have so many great bars and clubs here. Every night there is some concert or jam session to go to. On the other hand, there are so many cute cafés and some amazing parks if you just need some peace and quiet.
Moreover– and especially at BIMM Hamburg – the people are so kind and unique. I think that we have already created a great community and for the first time in my life, I am surrounded by amazingly creative and musical people all the time. I really love that!
WHY DID YOU CHOSE TO STUDY VOCALS?
I chose the Vocals Course at BIMM Institute because singing is probably the most important thing in my life. Performing on stage, feeling the music and touching people with it is the most amazing feeling for me (sorry for all the cheesiness). I think the Vocals Course can really help me improve my singing skills, but also provides me with knowledge on how to get my music out there and how to market it.
