Anna Waronker

Songwriter, Composer, Member of that dog. – “Never Say Never,” Clueless, Lovelace: A Rock Opera
Anna Waronker is a beloved singer and songwriter around the world. Well
known as the frontwoman and songwriter for the band that dog., with whom she
released critically acclaimed three albums, she has released two renowned full-length
solo albums (Anna By Anna Waronker, California Fade). Anna is
widely known for her unique melodic and harmonic sensibility and personal lyrical
wit. After a long hiatus, that dog. is scheduled to release a new album later this
year of which Anna has engineered and produced and written the songs and
orchestral arrangements.

Waronker is a profoundly prolific writer and loves collaborating with other artists
as well as composing for film, television, and advertising. She has worked with
artists such as Beck, Heart, Lisa Loeb, Iggy Pop, Richard Edwards and The
Go-Gos. She has worked with writer/producers such as Greg Kurstin, Greg
Wells, and Meghan Kabir and written and performed for such projects as JC
Penny, T-Mobile, Mini Cooper, Grey’s Anatomy (ABC), Riverdale (The WB)
Welcome To The Wayne (Nickelodeon), Castle (ABC), Woman Of The Hour
with Lena Dunham (NPR), Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Josie And The
Pussycats, and Clueless to name a few.
In addition to songwriting for other artists and herself, Anna is a composer/playwright for the theater. Her first endeavor was Lovelace A Rock Opera (co-
written with frequent writing partner and sister-in-law, Charlotte Caffey).

Waronker and Caffey wrote the book, music, and lyrics to this completely sung-
through masterpiece, which ran in Los Angeles, CA from 2008-2009 and went on to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. Lovelace starred a then unknown and now
Broadway darling Katrina Lenk (The Band’s Visit, Once, Spider-Man).
Anna is currently developing a new musical with Charlotte-based on a play
written by Ike Holter called Hit The Wall. Initially, Waronker and Caffey were
enlisted to write three songs for the play which opened at The Davidson/Valentini
Theater at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. The play was a smash and had for a
sold-out six-month run. During that time, Waronker and Caffey became inspired
to develop the play into a musical. They are preparing for an upcoming
workshop at USC’s School of Dramatic Arts’ LIVEREADS Series to audition
new material this April.
