Anna’s musicals with book writer Emily Garsin include the music and lyrics for Finding Time (2016), Return to Aesop (2014) and Moon (2011), all of which received performances as part of the Starling Arts Summer School. She also wrote the book, music and lyrics for Feyly Manor (2008).
Garsin & Shields are in the process of writing their fourth musical together; an empowering tale about women and girls, the great things they do and the obstacles that can sometimes block their path to greatness.
On YouTube she can be found singing about that time of the month in her cabaret ditty The Period Song.
By day she is co-director of Starling Arts, and gets people singing wherever and whenever she can.
