Analea

United States

Her name is Analea, and her sound is amazingly unique but fitting. Island Empire swoops in and signs their first Tongan female Artist. Island Empire, the world’s largest Island Reggae Record Label with top-charting acts like Matisyahu, Morgan Heritage, Fiji, Common King’s, Sammy J, Tenelle, and many more. Dig a little deeper and there is no surprise why such a powerhouse label signed this Tongan entertainer. The Island Empire/Regime team had two Grammy noms this year with Common Kings and Morgan Heritage. Tautua Reed of Island Empire can definitely spot a hit artist. So it will be exciting to see what he unfolds with this new female on the roster.

Analea is the Singer/Songwriter partially responsible for Tenelle’s title track record ‘For The Lovers’, which hit number 1 on iTunes and Billboard charts. She also helped pen Swells ft. Sammy J’s number 1 iTunes hit ‘Still Wanna Be Your Lover’ as well as one of the best-reviewed songs on iTunes for the famous 80’s band ‘The Jets’ 25th reunion album called ‘Believe In Love’. Her pen found its way to the rising young Polynesian star Fancy Nancy. We also discovered she helped 5th Harmony’s Dinah Jane write her first two singles before she auditioned for X-factor.

Analea’s debut album is set to release this year entitled ‘Queendom’. When asked what her vision was behind this album she responded, “I spend a lot of time trying to get to know everyone on my social media. An inspiring part of that for me has been meeting and hearing the stories of other women.. women who embrace their power and sexiness.. women who have forgotten their power.. women who are ashamed of their insecurities.. and women who have made sacrifices in chasing their dreams.. women of every shape, size and color, this is for all you. Queendom – for everything life puts us women through, and for the men who love and accept every inch of it.
