Anya Marina
Anya Marina is a singer-songwriter and radio disc jockey based in San Diego, Calif. Her music has been featured on the ABC television drama Grey’s Anatomy (and its second soundtrack) and on shows such as MTV’s The Real World. Anya was born in Ann Arbor, Mich., and grew up in the Silicon Valley area of California as a capricious child with Russian-Agnostic/Irish-Catholic professor parents (psychology and russian literature/math) and a younger sister. After finishing high school, Anya moved to Los Angeles as an aspiring actress. +/-

With stints in the British American Drama Academy (taught by Richard Dreyfuss, Marsha Mason, Anne Jackson and Eli Wallach) and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, Anya has also acted in television and film (in 2001, she starred in the feature film, 100 Girls). She eventually moved back home to earn a college degree in English and writing at Santa Clara University. She continued to struggle as an artist — working in acting, musical theatre, music, improv and comedy — but eventually found a job as a radio DJ on KSCU, Santa Clara University’s college station.

But I’m gonna burn, I’m gonna shine and multiply
I’m gonna fill up the great divide
You’ll never break me with all the things you say
“Miss Almost, Miss Maybe, Miss Halfway”
Miss Halfway
Move You
