ABOUT ANITA

Anita Aysola, the Atlanta-based songwriter, has always been a musical chameleon, skillfully blending her mastery of Western and Hindustani classical music with a variety of other genres. Her artistic journey is a testimony to her passion for exploring and harmonizing diverse musical landscapes.

From her early days as a serious student of classical music to her debut album "More Than Maybe" in 2008, Anita's music has consistently reflected her eclectic range of influences. Her journey through genres such as jazz, blues, classic rock, and Indian music is not just a story of exploration but also of integration, as evidenced in her acclaimed album "Beyond Our Dreams." This album marked a significant milestone in her career, showcasing her unique ability to fuse Western and Indian musical elements into a cohesive and resonant narrative.

Anita's single “Heartbeat,” marked her first venture into music inspired by her commitment to social justice. Written in opposition to Georgia’s effort to block women’s access to abortion, and featuring the world-renown Resistance Revival Chorus, the song debuted exclusively in Rolling Stone India and was covered by NowThis for its powerful call to action. “Heartbeat” is the 2020 L.A. Music Video Award Award Winner for Best Social Commentary Video, Grand Jury Award Winner for the Awareness Film Festival, and Global Music Award Silver Medalist. Anita received a Semi-Finalist award in the International Songwriting Competition, Finalist Awards in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest for both the Freedom and Video Categories, and was also a two time finalist in RAWA's Songs for Social Change Competition.

As she moves into 2024, Anita's music continues to evolve, embracing an alternative style that resonates with the influences of bands like Massive Attack, Portishead, Radiohead, and Zero 7. This natural progression represents not a departure, but rather a broadening of her musical repertoire, building on her foundational experiences and skills.

Her upcoming cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Something I Can Never Have" is a prelude to her new album "Dreamwalker," scheduled for release later this year. These works are set to reveal the depth and breadth of Anita's artistry, as she weaves her rich musical history into an innovative alternative tapestry.

Throughout her career, Anita has captivated audiences across the United States with performances in major cities and at notable events, including a private function featuring President Barack Obama. A celebrated figure in the Atlanta music scene, she continues to inspire and engage audiences with her dynamic and evolving sound.

Anita Aysola's musical evolution is a journey of continuous growth and creative expression, embracing the past while innovatively charting new paths in the world of alternative music.
