STANHOPE — The award-winning guitarist and singer Ana Popovic will not only bring her outstanding blues and rock act to the Stanhope House stage on Tuesday Sept. 18, but she'll also be bringing her new album.

Her newest album, "Like It On Top", will be released worldwide officially on Sept. 14, just in time for the Stanhope show.

The Stanhope House is located in downtown Stanhope.

"'Like It On Top," described by Popovic as a concept album, explores ten different aspects of women's empowerment on ten new songs.

"Like It On Top celebrates those women who take initiative, develop, inspire and motivate," says Popovic. "It's about feeling good about yourself and what you do. The album is about achieving your own potential. Succeeding in juggling work, family, social life, expectations of the others, of the society, while pushing limits. Renewing yourself and inspiring others.

"I hope that my music inspires others to motivate ladies all over the world to be successful, energetic, empowered women on a mission, and to motivate men to give them that chance," Popovic continues. "The majority of women need to work harder than men to prove themselves or need to cope with a feeling of constant pressure to never make a mistake and be perfect. I believe that women no longer only have the right to earn a living and to take care of themselves and their families."

Popovic's music of course goes well beyond her latest endeavor. She fell in love with American blues as a kid, starting back home in Belgrade, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia) during the fall of Communism, then moved to the Netherlands to study at the conservatory of jazz and world-music. She lived in Amsterdam for over ten years, and then in a single-minded pursuit of her art and career, she relocated to Memphis, TN to record and work with Southern musicians. Finally, two years ago, she moved her family to Los Angeles, California where she now lives.

Popovic has recorded 9 studio album and been nominated for six Blues Music Awards, and has appeared on the covers of Vintage Guitar and Guitar Player magazines. Her albums 'Can You Stand The Heat' and 'Unconditional' were USA Today Picks-Of-The-Week and featured on NPR Weekend Edition, who praised her "Fiery technique on the Stratocaster". Nearly all of Ana's albums reached the top of the Billboard Blues Charts. She and her six-piece band have toured tirelessly, sharing stages with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa and many others.

The Stanhope House, located on Main Street in Stanhope, offers entertainment several days a week, from comedy to blues to tribute and heavy metal bands.

Doors open at 6 p.m., with music starting at 7 p.m. with opening acts. For tickets and other information about this show and others at The Stanhope House, go to www.stanhopehousenj.com.
