Anya Marina started taking center stage when her songs began appearing on popular shows such as “Gossip Girl,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Vampire Diaries,” among many others. Beyond that, she has toured with the likes of Jason Mraz, The Plain White T’s, Spoon, Eric Hutchinson and Greg Laswell. Marina became a YouTube sensation when she covered T.I.’s “Whatever You Like” in 2009, which reached nearly four million views and spent approximately two weeks atop the iTunes “Top Alternative Songs” chart. Her clear voice and clean style have been compared to Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor, and she is known for her ability to give a great live performance. Her newest album, “Felony Flats,” has received race reviews and is sure to please with its clever and relatable lyrics set to pop, rock and electronic dance beats.
