ANYA has American R&B and hip-hop running through her veins and Scandinavian thoughtfulness on her mind – her Danish dad and African-American mom obviously passed on the best of both worlds, when they raised the young singer in the Danish countryside. ANYA released her debut single, Greet Me, in 2014 and was immediately appointed “one to watch” by the Danish media. In 2015, she won the award for Single of the Year with Greet Me at The Scandinavian Soul Award as well as Danish newspaper Politiken “Byen-award” in the category Upcoming of the Year. The hype was a force to be reckoned with for the young singer and her debut EP, which she - in line with her being down to earth and humble - entitled “The Credit”. Since then, things have evolved rapidly for ANYA: she has released a number of successful singles, she has toured the country and she has performed at the biggest TV shows in Denmark.
