Anya Marina

Portland singer-songwriter Anya Marina has spent time on the stage, in the studio and behind a mic. The actress-turned-DJ-turned-musician has had several singles featured in television shows and movies, such as Grey's Anatomy and New Moon, and her new full-length album is scheduled to be out this year. The blonde songstress' smooth voice and warm guitar have opened for the likes of Joshua Radin and Jason Mraz, and she first rose to fame in 2005 when she was named one of the best "Unsigned Acts" by San Diego CityBeat. Her forthcoming album, which remains untitled, features the seductive, whisper-like drawl and modest instrumentation of her most recent EP, Spirit School, as well as collaborations with Joe Plummer of Modest Mouse and Eric Earley of Blitzen Trapper.
