Anya is a sensual, mesmerizing singer who interprets a diverse jazz repertoire with uniquely intelligent style. Her passionate delivery and superb musical accompaniment create riveting performances in which jazz becomes a stimulating contemporary experience. From the audience...
Anya grew up in the former Soviet Union. During her university years in Leningrad (now called St. Petersburg), she and her sister were well known in the underground rock scene, singing with local bands Vozrozhdenie and Aelita. Anyas interest turned to jazz after her first visit to a jazz club. She learned jazz standards by listening to western records and by collaborating with Russian musicians. When Anya emigrated to the United States in 1990, she sang with the Natural Gas Jazz Band and Chicago Six in festivals in Reno, San Francisco, San Diego and Mountain View. She took a break to raise her daughter, and has returned to her passion in recent years, singing in Bay Area clubs and studios.
Anya is joined by well-known musicians - Randy Porter, Jason Lewis, John Wiitala, Christian Tamburr (who also wrote two arrangements for this album), and Jim Schneider.
From The Heart is Anyas first album where she sings jazz standards demonstrating a wide range of styles, and with each song she draws listeners into her warm embrace.
