Biography
Singer/songwriter Anandi carved out a scene for herself in Portland, OR, after moving there from Boston, where she'd spent some time developing her sound. She recorded her songs with producer Brad Craig and released the albums independently. Drawing from such influences as Chrissie Hynde and Rickie Lee Jones, Anandi writes songs that have led to such comparisons as Aimee Mann and Joni Mitchell. Born in Los Angeles to a family of musicians, Anandi began writing songs at a young age and later went to study at a Tibetan Buddist retreat center in Northern Vermont at age 20. Eventually she moved to Boston, where her musical ambitions began to take center stage with the release of her debut album, Melody of Question. Anandi found Boston quite hospitable to singer/songwriters such as herself, particularly the media, who praised her work in particular. With the release of her second album, The Mirror, she found herself in Portland, where she continued to develop her career with many area performances. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
