Anya Marina U.S. Tour Schedule

Anya Marina

Anya Marina has announced details of a major U.S. tour. The dates – which see the Portland, Oregon-based singer/songwriter traveling alongside her Chop Shop/Atlantic labelmates, Scars on 45 – begin January 27th at Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge and then continue through mid-February.

The trek heralds the release of Marina’s new album ‘Felony Flats’, set to arrive on March 13th. The self-produced album – which follows 2009’s acclaimed label debut, ‘Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II’ – sees the multi-talented Marina joined by some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest musicians, including guitarist Cody Votolato, bassist Jeff Bond, drummer Joe Plummer, and Blitzen Trapper’s Eric Earley, who contributes additional piano and guitars.

Anya describes the inspiration behind the album as “a map of my darkest hallways, my deepest—and sometimes ugliest – yearnings, and my most glaring mistakes. It chronicles a time of profound loss. During this time, I lost friends and family, I lost my way – risked losing nearly everything – and then slowly, piece by piece and step by arduous step, found my ‘way back home’. It was a difficult journey, but it was also my proudest. It’s the album of which I am most proud all around—sonically, creatively, thematically, lyrically.”

Anya Marina At The Opera House In Toronto

LastKiss Films caught up with Anya Marina in Toronto for her show at The Opera House on January 29th. Highlights from the show and an interview with the singer songwriter, who discussed how songwriting is like a Rubik’s Cube for her, how she always wanted to be on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and went to acting school, being influenced by Jewel, music she’s been listening to lately, and more have since been removed at YouTube.

Hula Hooping With Anya Marina

Anya Marina showed off her hula hooping skills with a friend in a parking lot in a new Twitvid clip. The singer songwriter joked, “Forgot how nefarious tour life can be – shot this before the drugs came and we pulled a ‘Belinda Carlisle’ on a groupie.” Watch it below.

Anya Marina SXSW Survival Tips

Anya Marina did a Q&A with her label Atlantic Records ahead of SXSW in Austin, Texas, where she was asked about whether she had any festival survival tips.

Yeah, bring flats because walking in heels is torture. Those should go in your backpack along with a water bottle, sunscreen and a good hat—and a flip cam because I’m a compulsive documentarian. In the least I’ll always have my iPhone, because I like to add stuff to twitter constantly.

The entire interview at has since been removed.

Anya Marina Performs ‘Satellite Heart’ At Boston’s WFNX

Anya Marina came by the WFNX studios before her show in Boston on Thursday night (January 21) to hang out with Adam 12 and play a few songs. The singer songwriter talked about 23 being her lucky number, being team Edward because “I’m attracted to emotionally and geographically unavailable pale skinny guys”, and the crazy reaction she got being on stage with the ‘New Moon’ stars. Watch the interview and ‘Satellite Heart’ performance via YouTube below.

2009 Was A Banner Year For Anya Marina

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.
