Her songs are now being considered for showcase on the CW television network. In both 2006 and 2007, ANJ was chosen as a finalist in the "VH1 Song of the Year Contest," which takes in contestants from over 20 countries around the world. She was also a two-time, first-place winner at OurStage.com in both May and June, in which she received over 20,000 votes and song plays in just one day. Over the past few years, Anj has been building a steady fan base through performances in tri-state area including Ceasars Casino in A.C., World Café (WXPN) in Philadlephia and The Bitter End in NYC. Her European touring includes an annual mini-tour in Italy for the past 3 years. With the release of her second full-length album, "When Grey Blushes", the music industry has begun to sit up and take notice of this rising songstress.
Since her release, ANJ's music was solicited by TAXI (the world’s leading A&R company) over a dozen times to industry executives of all shapes and sizes for review, including Wind-Up, Octone, ATO and Minty Fresh Records. ANJ's live performances have been likened to a one-woman play set to music, as she reaches out to the audience in interludes of “conversational poetry” that describe the genesis of each song. She demonstrates a beautiful command of her instrument as she tells the story of one who cares too deeply and feels too much and thus is the root of much of her own anguish. But the best part about seeing ANJ live, is the experience of being pulled into her world, and realizing that is not the story of not her own life that she is reaching out to share with her audience, but of the human condition we all share, with both its glories and perils.
