Exclusive Artist Interview: Anya Tischler

Denver-based recording artist Anya Tischler is a versatile and passionate singer that has been honing her craft since the age of 11 and has been hitting the ground running since her inception into the market. The music video for her hypnotically visceral debut single “Won’t Be Broken” released earlier this month and so far has amassed over 1,000 plays and has drawn in an insatiable following. As a new artist in the musical spectrum, her experience in music is undeniably apparent and reflects very effectively when you hear her distinctive style. We sense some major things happening for her in the very near future, especially since being managed by Joe Patella from the Florida Songwriters Association. So we sat down with Anya for a comprehensive interview and got to ask her some questions about her career, influences, the past, present and future.


How long have you been active under your current artist name?

I have been active under my current name of Songs by Anya since approximately October of 2020. This is the name I use in most of my social media. However, my artist name is my given name, Anya Tischler.


What music scene/city do you currently represent?

I live in denver so I represent the Denver Music scene here in Colorado.


The pandemic has really thrown a wrench into the live music experience and for artists altogether. How has it affected you and your career?

Honestly, the pandemic started my music career. I started posting covers because I was stuck at home for 2 months and so I just started playing all the time. Joe Patella discovered me through my youtube channel and reached out to me about letting him listen to some of my original work. It started out as him reviewing my work and giving me suggestions, and then evolved into a partnership of manager and artist.


What are some of your music influences?

I have a lot of different ones and some that I was really influenced by growing up were bands like Evanesence and Three Days Grace. I also listened to artists like Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran and Sara Bareilles. I have tend to reflect a different artist’s style and influence on me in every song that I write. 


What kind of concepts do you tend to write about as an artist? Shine some light on that.

 I generally tell stories about my life experiences. Sometimes those are painful moments, but sometimes they are about people in my life that fill me with joy or who amaze me so much that the words I say couldn’t express how I really feel. And my music has always been a way for me to sing what I can’t find the words to say.


When is your next release coming out?

My next single release is set to be sometime in June of this year, probably the early part of June, but we have not nailed down a specific date as of yet. We are looking at it closely in the next couple weeks and should know soon.


What’s in store for you in 2021? Give us the goods. 
Besides the release in June, I will be releasing more music and maybe even getting to meet some other artists and collaborate with them, and I’m excited to continue working with the Florida Songwriters Association. I’ll be the featured artist in one of their next virtual workshops this year, so that will be a pretty cool experience! They are also planning now to organize an artist collaboration with some of their members, each of us helping the other to begin, or finish, writing a song.  I also will continue to hone my craft and learn some new tips and tricks to the business, as I get to see how it works from the inside.

Exclusive Artist Review: Kyle Motsinger – “Whenever” & “No Shame (feat. Melody Betts)” Singles

NYC Pop recording artist Kyle Motsinger emerged onto the scene in 2017 when he dropped his first album ‘Far Away’ and quickly began gaining traction throughout the NYC and tri-state areas with his energetic stage presence, animated image and catchy signature style. Now with the recent release of his sophomore album ‘Any Way I Want It To’, he has once again hit the ground running and has successfully garnered an insatiable following with several standalone singles from the record that make it a gem in its own right.

First anchor single is “Whenever”, a melodically visceral tune with an emo-oriented piano progression that eases into a Pop/Dance sensibility that is uplifting and effective. Drawing prominent comparisons to artists like Elton John and Depeche Mode, Kyle serves up a diligently crafted vocal melody and truly encapsulates the upbeat tempo that cruises throughout the track’s duration. It has excellent production value and the performance value parallels it just about perfectly. Second single “No Shame (feat. Melody Betts)” is another unwaveringly catchy song with a much more hypnotic groove accompanied with atmospheric textures and multi layers. This multifaceted track has more of Kyle Motsinger‘s signature mid-to-high range vocal melody placements and also features a powerful second lead vocal by recording artist Melody Betts, who both collectively feed off each others’ presence in this song and carry the torch both equally and brilliantly. This song in particular encompasses a funky and rhythmic edge that is tastefully blended and really captures Kyle‘s craft in its climactic glory. It’s a solid single with finely tuned detail that will undoubtedly have you listening to the rest of the album to see what other tricks are up the musical sleeves, and you’ll easily get this track stuck in your head.

Kyle Motsinger has performed an array of prominent gigs all over the Manhattan area and is returning to the stage in June after a long break caused by the pandemic. Until then, you can get your copy of both singles, the album and his other releases on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms. If distinctively catchy Pop and Dance sensibilities are in your desires, then Kyle Motsinger will definitely be one of your favorites of 2021.

Exclusive Artist Review: Anne Stott – “Jump Go” & “We Are Here” Singles

Known for her dynamically crafty style and anthemic songwriting structures, Boston-based recording artist Anne Stott has been heavily active in her regional music scene for over a decade and has amassed an insatiable following over the years. She has appeared on TED Talk and Limelight Magazine nominated her for “Vocalist of the Year”. And after taking a listen to two of her anchor singles, it’s no surprise that she continues to hit the ground running with every release and draws in new fans from all walks of life – and for good reason.

Sharing an impressive resemblance to iconic artists like Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) and Patti Smith, Anne Stott serves up a tastefully blended signature sound that is authentic, anthemic and naturally gifted. Her most recent single “Jump Go” is amazingly catchy and really showcases Stott‘s ability to write a very effective vocal melody structure. The simple grungy guitar progression gives this single an atmospheric 90s edge and really delves into levels of nostalgia today’s music market rarely touches on. It’s a song you likely won’t get out of your head anytime soon and you’ll be instantly enamored with Stott‘s multifaceted nature in both her lyrics and execution. Her second anchor single “We Are Here” from her 2015 album ‘Love Never Dies’ (peaked at #19 on Relix Magazine radio chart) is a beautifully crafted tune with a fantastic groove at the forefront that really explores Stott‘s musical versatility. It brings together many angles of her craft and really demonstrates a songwriting style that is authentic and diverse. It’s a single that’ll easily entice you to listen to the rest of her album and truly earns your undivided attention.

Both singles are brilliantly written and really explores Anne Stott‘s balance between originality and familiarity, giving the listener a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable. If you haven’t heard her yet, then these are tracks that’ll easily turn you into a fan upon first listen. Both releases are available now on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
