Anya Kvitka’s bandwagon is very quickly filling up. The San Francisco bay area-based songstress continues to seduce fans and impress critics with her sultry voice, dynamic videos and impeccable style. Refined but full of fire, Anya’s vocal dexterity and innate musicality vault her into a rarefied group of singers. The Moscow, Russian-born chanteuse can just as easily draw on R&B or Hip-Hop as she can Soul or Jazz and back it all up with 20 years of classically trained piano experience.
In 2011, soon after graduating college, Anya got a huge push with the help of L.A. based company/blog Knocksteady, they recorded a live video of her track “Runnin.” On the day of its release, the video ranked on YouTube’s Top 100 list of favorited and viewed.
Her follow up video for “Gone Baby Gone,” produced by Hippie Sabotage and directed by Brandon Van Auken, was featured on blogs all over the world and has currently surpassed 20,000 views.
Most recently, she successfully hosted a KickStarter campaign that garnered her $5,000 to fund 2 music videos for her singles “Maybe” and “One Less.” The track “One Less” was just released, and immediately received almost 10 thousand views overnight without any viral push from blogs.
With over 100,000 views on YouTube and a host of accolades firmly under her belt, Anya is poised to make a major impact in the near future. One of CBS News’ Best Break Music Acts of 2012 and a recent TedTalks performer, recent support from Grammy winner Bobby Ozuna and bandmate/producer snack|BOT (associated with Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest) and Red Bull have been instrumental to opening up new pathways for Anya’s burgeoning career. With this team, she has only the brightest of plans for the future.
Great interest has been shown by Mike Caren and several other prominent A&Rs from Warner Music Group and its subsidiaries as well as a variety of indie labels about the young singer as of 2013.
