Nothing comes between Anja Kotar and her curiosity. The 22-year-old Berklee graduate has led a life of persistent pragmatism, leading directly to her career today. Her new releases will explore the relationship between youth and technology; speaking from her own experiences, she delivers a mature, nuanced perspective on contemporary life.
She comes from the small central European nation of Slovenia and began training in dance and piano early on and she entered conservatory for piano and musical theatre when she moved to San Jose, California, at 14. It was there that she was finally able to truly immerse herself in another discipline she’d been working at for some time: vocal performance.
Her original pop songwriting took shape as NOMAD, her first full-length record. She relied on the generosity of fans through Kickstarter, eventually topping $20,000 for the project. The first single from the album was nominated for Best Pop Song at the 2017 American Songwriting Awards.
Anja is currently on a West Coast SoFar Tour and the music video for her latest single "House Party" is currently featured on the VEVO "Incoming Pop" playlist.
