Ana Popovic Tried To Keep Personal And Music Worlds Separate

(The Blues) Ana Popovic has recalled how she resisted early attempts from promoters who wanted her to invite friends to her shows. She was determined to keep her social circle distant from her fledgling career - to the point that she didn't encourage companions to show an interest.

Popovic tells the Huffington Post: "I always wanted to keep those worlds separate. I had friends through guitar lessons and we would hang out and listen to blues.

"But my school friends, I never wanted to force the blues on to them. It was really just my world. When I started to play in clubs they'd ask me to invite my friends, but I never did. I never talked about what I do."

She received an early start from her father Milton, a blues aficionado, which eventually resulted in the pair recording duet album Blue Room together. Popovic says: "I would go to night clubs to listen to the blues bands - I was 12 or 13 at the time, so I could listen to the first two songs, then it would be time to go home."
