Biography

Anna Yvette is an unstoppable musical power house. She is a classically trained pianist and violinist, who also possesses an eclectic range of artistic influences. She was raised in a house where Rock and Roll reigned supreme, but she often listened to hardcore rock and punk, as well as “jam bands” such as Moe and Particle. It was through this exposure to various genres of music that her fascinating hybrid style of songwriting was born. With her natural gift of wordplay, combined with her instinctive ability to “tell it like it is,” Anna began to capture the ear and hearts of music lovers of all ages, races, and backgrounds.
Anna recorded her first untitled EP reprisal, which she wrote, produced, and played in 2005. Later in 2007, she was joined by drummer Vincent Listrani and bassist Louis Langone - forming Anna Yvette and The Ohms. Dubbed by screaming fans at shows as “A.Y.O.”, the group spent the rest of 2007 rocking the New York City circuit and other venues throughout the northeast coast before their popularity transcended into the Midwest. With the release of 2008's full length album Moonlighter Ultimately, A.Y.O's Midwest tour ended with a memorable performance in front of thousands of fans in Walker, Minnesota at Moondance Jam, where Anna Yvette joined music legends such as, Crosby Stills and Nash, Sebastian Bach, Poison, Sweet, Great White, Boz Scaggs, and many others. In June of 2009, she released the EP Ships of Theseus, and came in second place with her song "Hey Tommy" in the Windows Sponsored Song campaign, beating out thousands of other SIGNED artists. Anna Yvette supported her new release with a Midwest tour, and once again played at Moondance Jam, only this time she opened up for the infamous Sheryl Crow and shared the stage with country legend Jodi Messina.

Anna has been featured on the infamous "Out of the Box" radio show on Q104.3 in New York City and has taken the college radio waves by storm. Her music has been played on over 300 stations across the United States and Canada and received acclaim from New York’s #1 music station and nationally syndicated morning show “The Z Morning Zoo” on Z100, for the song "Give It Up Girl." Anna also actively participates in many charities, and often combines her music with raising awareness for them. She has played for over 3,000 people at the Human Rights Rally for China at Union Square in NYC, and is also involved with Global Outreach, GO Brazil, One, and The Multiple Sclerosis Society just to name a few.

Anna Yvette is a gifted and alluring songstress who brings a message of empowerment to all souls and a sharp wit displayed in her music that will truly make you laugh out loud. She has shattered the stereotype of being just another “chick with a guitar” and set forth to completely revolutionize the perception of the “female rocker”. She is redefining the standard for the music industry as to what a true musician and artist should stand for, and with every word, every verse, and every song, she gives you a piece of herself through her passionate and compelling musical compositions
