Annie "AnaMaria" Kozuch
Hailing from Mexico City, with a quick 26-year stop in New York City, Annie “Ana Maria” Kozuch is a bilingual and bicultural accomplished actor, voice artist and jazz vocalist. Practically born with a microphone in her hand, Annie’s inspirations were Julie Andrews, Barbara Cook, Shirley Jones, and Linda Ronstadt. On her 7th Birthday, she went to see Mexican icon, Silvia Pinal perform in Mame, and she was hooked! Annie was formally trained at R.A.D.A. in London and earned a B.A. in Dramatic Arts from Mills College.
Theatre morphed into radio and television, with a film peppered in here and there. Slowly but surely, Annie kept coming home to live music. After touring with Broadway Pops Concerts, she met the outstanding jazz pianist Frank Ponzio. With Frank's accompaniment, Annie directed and produced her first one-women show, Diva’s Lament, in which she comically tells her own story in tri-lingual song, blending musical theatre with jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, Mexican boleros, and Brazilian bossa nova. She has recorded and produced two charting CDs, Here With You and Mostly Jobim.
As a voice artist, Annie is known for her bright, present, authentic and engaging voice. As bicultural and accent-free in both English and Spanish, she is a perfect fit for today’s cross-cultural marketing. A master at accents (British, French, Spanish and Easter European), she comes alive in animation (Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego Go!). Annie uses her musical training in ADR voice matching. Some credits are: Bonnie Hunt (Cars 3), Penelope Cruz (355) and Jodie Comer (Free Guy.)
Annie works from her Los Angeles broadcast quality home studio and is equally comfortable recording in-studio. In addition to traveling, Annie’s passions are triathlons and fundraising for charities that speak to her: providing children with cleft surgery (smiletrain.org), promoting clean drinking water (charitywater.org), and rescuing children from sex trafficking and sex exploitation (ourrescue.org).
