Anya Marina checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@anyamarina) on Friday (January 8), discussing the new year, the roller coaster that was her 2009, and beginning work on her next album. The radio DJ turned singer songwriter tells readers:
Happy 2010, everyone
I don’t know about you, but my 2009 was a bit of a whirlwind, a roller coaster, if you will. (If you don’t know what a roller coaster is and you’d like to see me, guitarist Brian Karscig and tour manager Katie Benson riding one during the New Moon mall tour in Minneapolis (yep), click here to make the metaphor more real):
In any case, it was a banner year–I put out my dream album, toured with some of my favorites (Greg Laswell, Jason Mraz, The Virgins, Eric Hutchinson, Emiliana Torrini, Chris Isaak, Paolo Nutini), made some good videos with good people, FlipCam’ed my way across the country a few times over, did some tv stuff, and had a song in a movie about a girl struggling between her love for a vampire and a werewolf (hey, I don’t judge). For all of this, I have you to thank.
