anitakeys Music



      and Happy Holidays!!

 I'm Cleveland area singer-songwriter Anita Herczog.

  I perform all around town as anitakeys

  I have recorded 3 full-length 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 and features Special Guest performances by Deanna Brzozowski, Wanda Sobieska, Karmi James, Byron Nemeth, Carlos Jones, J. Scott Franklin, Tim Sprow, Darren "Cholly O" Evans, 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 (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 the Newest CD: Bad Dreams, Fallin Again, AlwaysWe Make Music & It's A Lovestorm are playing now on the Music Player, along with my newest single, Who She Is, which was released in December 2016  


 A NEW anitakeys EP is in the works now, produced by Writing Knights Publishing.  The upcoming 5-song EP is the prize I won in their songwriting competition earlier this year, and includes the 3 songs submitted to and performed Live for the competition: Mother Earth Blues, Soggy Shoes and Letting Go. Recorded again in Mann Wolf Studio with the very talented Dave Mann...I CAN'T WAIT to share this new recording with you!!
