Hi I'm Anya. I've been singing and playing music all my life, and performing in Asheville for 15 years. I started playing acoustic mountain music and now am an award-winning Americana songwriter and recording artist with some 10 albums I’ve recorded. I've performed in the backs of trucks, in theaters, on street corners, in churches, in buses, on hay bales, at college bars, in living rooms, on rooftops, under trees, and on big festival stages all over the world from Japan to France. I love bringing the Asheville sound—acoustic authentic mountain Americana—to area weddings and events. Whether a duo or full band with drums, I work with some of the finest instrumentalists in the country. We would love to help you celebrate—let me know what you have in mind and we’ll make it happen!
