anitakeys Music



  I'm Cleveland area singer-songwriter Anita Herczog.

  I perform all around town as anitakeys

  I have recorded 4 CDs of Original Music, starting with watertalk in 2011. watertalk, produced & engineered by Byron Nemeth, was begun in his Cleveland studio and completed in his Arizona studio. watertalk features Special Guest performances by Deanna Brzozowski, Wanda Sobieska, Karmi James, Byron Nemeth, Carlos Jones, J. Scott Franklin, Tim Sprow, Darren "Cholly O" Evans, Jeff Anastasia, Rob Hunter and Peter "Pedro" Dell. 

  In June 2013, I released Twenty Twelve, recorded with friends Ryann Anderson (bass) and Lorne Franklin (congas/djembe), engineered by Tracy Marie and Mastered by Paul Hamann at Suma Studio. Twenty Twelve features Special Guests J. Scott Franklin on "Serenade of the Sky", Matt Harmon on "Nothin' Left" and Reginald Redd on "butterflies".

  In September 2014, I released Dreamsongs and Misfits,
featuring new (dreamsongs) and a few older, previously unreleased original songs (the misfits), featuring yours truly on keys & vocals,  with Quinn Sands on harmonies & hand percussion, Ryann Anderson on bass, Lorne Patrick Franklin on congas/djembe/assorted percussion and Tony Kazel on drums.      Recorded Live, mixed and Mastered by Dave Mann Wolf at Mann Wolf Studio. 



    Several Songs from that CD: Bad Dreams, Fallin Again, AlwaysWe Make Music & It's A Lovestorm are included on the Music Player. 

                                         ♪ ♪ ♪ 

  My NEW anitakeys  CD, Who She Is, was released at the start of 2019! It includes 4 previously unreleased songs: Mother Earth Blues, Soggy Shoes, Nobody Whispers and Letting Go, a solo piano lullaby I wrote for my niece, Prayer For Dana, along with remixes of 2 songs previously released as singles- Who She Is and Wedding Song. Recorded again in Mann Wolf Studio by the very talented Dave Mann Wolf and featuring Ryann Anderson (Bass throughout and Rhythm Guitar on Soggy Shoes) and Lorne Franklin (Bongos on Letting Go and High Hat Cymbals on Mother Earth Blues) from the Friends band as well as Special Guests/Longtime Friends (and local favorites) Carlos Jones (on Vocals and Bongos on Soggy Shoes), engineer Dave Mann Wolf (on backup Vocals on Letting Go & The Ahh Song and Lead Guitar on Who She Is) and Jeffrey Bowen on Congas, wood blocks and guiro...I'm VERY EXCITED to share this new recording with you!!
