Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and raised in Cupertino, California, Anya Marina first made waves after relocating to sunny San Diego, renowned as a musical hub city for aspiring singer/songwriters. After earning applause as one of Southern California’s most talented young artists, Anya was personally signed to Chop Shop Records by label founder Alexandra Patsavas, famed music supervisor for such films and TV shows as Twilight, Gossip Girl, and Grey's Anatomy.

Marina’s full length 2009 effort, “SLOW & STEADY SEDUCTION: PHASE II” received copious critical commendation. Marina quickly followed “SLOW & STEADY SEDUCTION: PHASE II” with a slyly provocative cover of T.I.’s “Whatever You Like,” which was included on a 2009 episode of Gossip Girl. The track spent nearly two weeks atop iTunes’ “Top Alternative Songs” chart, with sales now in excess of 100,000. The “Whatever You Like” companion video clip became a YouTube favorite, earning close to 2.5 million views at Anya’s official channel. 2009 also saw Marina’s starkly beautiful “Satellite Heart” featured on the RIAA-certified platinum “THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.” The inspired “Tiny Stars Remix” of the track (by Interpol’s Samuel Fogarino) was later included on Marina’s 2010 EP, “SPIRIT SCHOOL.” The self-produced digital release found Anya further spreading her creative wings on such new songs as the gritty “Whatsit” (featuring The Dandy Warhols’ Courtney Taylor-Taylor).

A provocative and gifted live performer, Marina has toured nearly non-stop throughout her career, both as headliner as well as in tandem with such artists as Jason Mraz, Spoon, Joshua Radin, Eric Hutchinson, Chris Isaak, Paolo Nutini, Emiliana Torrini, The Virgins, Greg Laswell, Jenny Owen Youngs, Steve Poltz, Rhett Miller, The Plain White T’s, The Dandy Warhols, and Tristan Prettyman.

Marina has also made a series of high-profile TV appearances, including stellar live performances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The’s Rockville, CA. What’s more, Anya’s music has been featured in a wide array of TV series, including ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, MTV’s The City, Showtime’s The United States of Tara, and The CW’s 90210 and Privileged. Her songs have also been heard in major advertising campaigns for Frito-Lay’s Tostitos and Boyfriend, the popular fragrance from actress Kate Walsh (Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy).

“FELONY FLATS” was recorded entirely in Portland, OR and arrived in 2012 to critical acclaim. After moving to New York City and returning to an independent model of recording, Marina released her 4th full length, PAPER PLANE, via PledgeMusic and her own Good Rope Records. Her latest release, 2017’s SERIOUS LOVE EP, recalls nuances of Portishead and Sade and is a 4 song collaboration with Nashville's Ian Keaggy.

In the forthcoming comedic web series, ANYA MARINA: INDIE-PENDENT WOMAN, Marina plays a self-involved, slightly clueless version of herself in a mock-umentary about a newly independent artist, making her way in New York City.
