ABOUT

I'm Anne Strickland, a composer living in Dallas. I write music for orchestras, choirs, chamber groups, soloists, video games, and more. I'm also half of the electronic rock duo, The Home Conversion, and we are currently recording our third album. My solo releases include a space-pop EP, a collection of holiday folk music, and an 80 minute yoga soundtrack.  My podcast and vlog credits include music for Indivisible DFW, Roll to Hit Gaming, and Camera Insecura. Right now I’m writing and recording dark, emotional, and danceable tango music under the name Skull Witch. Punky Tango is the hub of all my music projects- have a listen

I’m the founder of Dallas Women in Audio and Music and I just joined the board of Girls Rock Dallas. I love connecting with local musicians and supporting women in music. Let’s rock!
