Eszter Anna Baumann
Although I’ve got a classical flutist degree, composing rock music has always played a leading role in my life. Therefore, I founded my band Ann my Guard, and since then, we’ve come out with two full-length albums distributed by Norwegian, English and German labels. Also, we’ve been actively touring in Europe in the past couple of years.
I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in American Studies, and a second bachelor’s degree in Business Management. By the previous one, I wrote my thesis about Digital Music Marketing. Besides managing my band, I work as an online editor and social media manager at Music Channel Hungary, focusing mainly on the international and Hungarian rock/metal bands.
