Anjana Vasan

Raised in Singapore, Anjana Vasan moved to Britain to work as an actor and has been appearing on stage and on screen ever since. But it’s in music that Vasan has put her own voice to be heard. Her debut EP 'Too Dark for Country' captures Vasan's unique voice as both a singer and songwriter, and is a perfect introduction to one of the newest talents around. Taking influences from country, blues and folk, Vasan creates a record that isn't quite any of those, but instead something utterly original and as deeply moving as it is bright and funny. Recorded with award-winning producer and musician Ben Walker, 'Too Dark for Country' talks of race, of blues legends, love songs doomed to repeat themselves, and of that most magical of all things: key lime pie.
