She plays guitar, piano, and clarinet. She also engineers and writes choir and musical arrangements.

Her music has been featured in TV series including Grey’s Anatomy, Six Feet Under and Big Love, and in movies including Love Me No More (2008). Her song “Beautiful Day” has been the sound of the “Skyteam” campaign, and in 2008 her song “Lay Your Head Down” was the synch for the international H&M Spring commercial.

Keren Ann and Icelandic musician Barði Jóhannsson form the musical duo “Lady & Bird”; the two released a self-titled studio album in 2003, as well as a live recording of their performance with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra in 2009. The two co-wrote the 2011 opera Red Waters; it was produced by the Opéra de Rouen and directed by Arthur Nauzyciel, and performed in four opera houses around France.

Keren Ann co-wrote Henri Salvador’s 2000 album Chambre Avec Vue, and wrote the lyrics for Sophie Hunter’s 2005 debut album Isis Project, to music written by Guy Chambers. In 2008, Keren Ann composed, with Tibo Javoy, the entire sound design for the European TV channel Arte. She co-wrote and co-produced, with Doriand, Emmanuelle Seigner’s 2010 album Dingue.

She contributed to the soundtrack of the French film Thelma, Louise et Chantal (2010), directed by Benoît Pétré, including cover versions of French songs from the 1960s. She also contributed six songs to the Israeli film Yossi (2012), directed by Eytan Fox, as well as appearing onscreen as herself, performing a music concert.

Winter Garden

By Keren Ann would like the green sun

Laces and teapots

Seaside photos

In my winter garden

I would like light

As in New England

I want to change atmosphere

In my winter garden

My Flower Dress in the November Rain

Your hands running, I can not wait for you

The years pass, that is far the tender age

No one can hear us

I would like the Fred Astaire

Review a Latécoère

I always want to please you

In my winter garden

I want to lunch on the ground

As along the clear gulfs

Kissing your eyes open

In my winter garden

My Flower Dress in the November Rain

Your hands running, I can not wait for you

The years pass, that is far the tender age

No one can hear us
