Moscow-born, Anya Kvitka is a player chanteuse who can draw on R&B, hip-hop, soul or jazz with equal ease thanks to her international music background and 20 years of classical piano training. Anya's 2011 live performance of Runnin', recorded at Knocksteady (now Maker Studios), was ranked in the YouTube Top 100 list the day of its release. She recently completed a successful Kickstarter project to fund her latest two singles, "Maybe" and "One Less." With her band, the getDown, she has opened for Grammy® winning artists such as Foxes, Ryan Leslie, and -- as a part of the biggest musical festival in the San Francisco Bay Area's BFD -- for 30 Seconds to Mars, Diplo, Jimmy Eat World, and Stone Temple Pilots. Anya has also been a featured artist at TEDx Talks Bay Area.
Based in San Jose, CA, the band's sound touches on everything from rock, soul and funk to hip-hop, dubstep, reggae and, of course, jazz.
