"what a pleasure it was to work on your record. Michael has excelled at capturing your songs, and the songs and 'vibe' are superb. The tracks are sounding beautiful. It is a special record." - Dave Neil (Mastering Engineer)

"Ann came to me as a novice, and I very quickly realised that hers is a unique talent, waiting to blossom. The process of gently coaxing the haunting, (sometimes fragile) songs out of her, was a rewarding experience for me as a record producer. I believe Ann has something very special, creating music of rare and delicate beauty." - Michael Fix (Producer)

"stunning new album by Ann Leung. Utterly beautiful.... breathtaking." - Nadia Sunde

 "Sublime, moving, grounding, ethereal, beautiful....This album at once speaks of a humble & gentle soul who is the composer. The music sounds simultaneously grounded , unpretentious & yet heavenly. The songs thread together creating a concept album whose theme reflects a beautiful calm." - Sadie Gwynn Jones

"It's been my constant companion in the car for the last few days and I never tire of listening to this epic but peaceful music. I find myself uplifted and transported away from my stress and worries. There is such a spirituality, thoughtfulness and feeling of space to this music ….. life is far too busy but ahhh…. it’s so nice to reflect and contemplate. Simply divine musicianship and arrangements from the guest musicians as well. Five honking stars from me …." - Juju Minto

"...a gorgeous, ethereal and entrancing album!! Wonderful songs from Ann have been brought to life by the extraordinary recording, playing & production talents of the magical Michael Fix.... . There are also a host of other talented musicians & performers. This is a fantastic album - lovely collection of original songs, brought to life in an exquisitely beautiful way, sung superbly by Ann!! Sheer musical heaven. Go & buy a copy before it sells out" - Ian Dearden

"it moves me, draws me in and hugs me, takes me on a journey. Just brilliant... " - Leanne Phillips

"Ann Leung has created a wonderfully sincere and honest album. To take the concepts of peace, joy and hopefulness and present them as understandable songs you can relate to easily is a gift. Musically Ann has explored a myriad of sounds yet they blend harmoniously and create a soothing beautiful backdrop to her central message of harmony and love. This album can add joy to your life." - David Penman

"Right from the very first track of honking wild geese in flight, you are transported to a magical space filled with top quality lyrics, stories, musicianship and melodies, with the beautifully soft, lilting vocals of Ann and her friends. There are so many layers to these thought provoking tracks. Fabulous musicianship from all those involved, with many of my favourite Brisbane artists contributing to the gorgeous melodies with stylish precision, harmonies and instrumentation. What a joy it has been to listen to this uplifting music and to share in Ann's journey. The CD cover and inserts are beautifully put together with photographs by the very talented Chris Hall. I will be listening to these tracks over and over. So serene. So inspirational. It transports you to a state of bliss where troubles melt away and you feel in touch with your own personal Angels. This CD has my highest recommendation. Make sure you get your own today." - Kara-Mia

"dreams of a wildgoose" coming soon

 

 

 

"dreams of a wildgoose" CD has gone to press!!! 

If you're itching to get your hands on a copy, join the mailing list at right to be the first in the know.

In the last couple of weeks, Dave Neil has been mastering the album, adding sparkle and final oomph, and we've been busy on album artwork. We found a glorious yellow wall at a local Buddhist temple - perfect backdrop for a photoshoot with my favourite orange cloth.

What's the story of the orange cloth? I've always loved orange.....

Recording the Winterbreak Choir

 

It's been a glorious couple of months working with producer Michael Fix on the debut cd. One of the highlights.. recording the Winterbreak Choir at Mt Tamborine. Checkout this short video of "behind the scenes" action from up the mountain.

We now have final mixes ready for mastering, and I'm about to get out the paintbrush and play with images for the album art.

The album name has also evolved - "dreams of a wildgoose"
My name in Chinese means "wildgoose" - I've always felt like more of a "goose" than an "Ann"! 

It's going to be beautiful

 

Super excited to be in the recording studio, working with the amazing Michael Fix, to put together my debut full length CD. A truly special feeling to be bringing the best songs of the last five years into one collection.
