ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Anj's songs are portraits set to music that touch the soul. Her introspective, thoughtful music is a manifestation of true talent and self-expression.” – Steve Angelucci, Atlantic City
Weekly.

She is bold. She is heartfelt. She is quirky. She is a powerful force when behind a piano, and she has a voice that makes the human soul stir with life. What she ISN'T is a cookie-cutter songwriter. She is unmistakingly Anj.

Since her debut album in 2004, this young songstress has been gathering a lot of attention from the press in the South Jersey area. Her first recording effort, “Coin and a Half Girls”, which was released in the Fall of 2004, garnished her favorable press from critics of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Courier Post, The Philadelphia City Paper, Atlantic City Weekly, The Ocean City Sentinel, The Egg Harbor Township Current, National Entertainment, and more.

This, her second album "When Grey Blushes" is Anj's first approach at putting instrumentation behind her music. With the addition of cello, bass, drums and vocal percussion -- the result is a truly unique sound that brings together elements of folk, jazz, blues and fusion.

"My concept is that of orchestrated jazz," she says, "which is really an oxymoron in theory - since jazz is improvised. I wanted a sound that was influenced by jazz and fusion but scored like orchestra music. So it was very tricky finding musicians who could play think classically and were trained in jazz."

Anj has spent the past two years building a steady fan base through performances at Ceasars Casino in A.C., Grape Street Pub, World Café (WXPN) and local festivals such as Arts Alive. She is now making her mark in NY, performing at NYC’s oldest club, The Bitter End as well as the Rockwood Music Hall, Bubby’s Lounge and Café Vivaldi.

The music industry is beginning to take notice of this rising young songstress. ANJ was asked to perform at the Westin Hotel in Los Angeles at the TAXI music convention, and one of her songs, entitled "Twelve Thirty One O One" was a runner up in the “VH1 Song of the Year” Contest, which takes in contestants from over 20 countries around the world.

"Regardless of how you take it in, this is music that is meant to be experienced. That is why this young artist is being called the fine wine of contemporary music; a new genre of music which I'd call Chiranj." -Media6Magazine

When Grey Blushes
Intimately revealing, painfully sweet, hauntingly sensual, and an exquisitely heartfelt musically captivating expression. An artist's artist in her own right, she is the "Aaliyah" of her genra and this album her "Rubber Soul". There are those that sing and there are the few that have the ability to artistically present themselves as a catalyst authentically emphazising compassion and connectedness within our collective emotional consciousness. "When Grey Blushes" is nothing short of a masterpiece presented by a great artist....just listen.

Genuine Hope For Music
In these days when musicians are judged not by talent, but how many club openings they attend; When how many trips to rehab are more important to albums sale than the emotional invest an artist makes to their work, I was ready to hang my head in mourning for music. And then I stumbled across Anj and, miraculously, I began to feel genuine hope. That's the best way to describe Anj, Genuine. She takes you by the hand as she leads you on her journey through life. And, even if you just met her, you find yourself recognizing some familiar landmarks along the path. If you want to laugh or cry or remember what life has to offer, buy this CD. Then sit back, close your eyes and recall the last time when grey blushed in your life.

Deeply moving, totally inspiring!!
I discovered Anj through an article in the paper, and found her music link to MySpace. I think she is amazing. After tuning out the radio's soul-less garbage, it is so INSPIRING to hear something with depth and purpose from a young artist! She reminds me of my youth when songwriters like Carole King and Joni Mitchell were writing about REAL things, in innovative ways. I feel certain this CD will be worth money someday. My only regret is that I don't have it autographed!!! Think you can help me out, Anj?

Astonishing performance
Anj has created a truly wonderful CD in this, her third album. Her gorgeous lyrics are passionate and heartfelt, her delivery is full of nuanced longing. She reminds me of Sade at her very best and is spiritual sister to all the old blues greats-- all this with her own phenomenal piano performance. Anj is definitely an artist to watch.

This is the soundtrack to my life!
WOW!! THIS IS ANJ'S BEST STUFF YET!! After buying both ANJ's first album "Coin and a Half Girls" and her single "Praise" on Itunes, I was hooked. She just has this amazing way of putting my feelings into words...

But this NEW album, with its quirky instrumentation, honest lyrics and soaring vocals is the most fresh, honest and original music I've heard in a long time. Anj doesn't just write "lyrics", she creates a tapestry of poetic prose that paints a picture any listener can get lost in.

This is an artist that isn't afraid to grow and break down stereotypes. You gotta buy this album!!!!! ROCK ON ANJ! :)
