Twistedsoul As debut records go, ~​~​~ does pretty much everything it needs to do: instantly captivating, refreshingly different and leaves you wanting more. Favorite track: Nocturne.

Dumb mmmn ambient soundscapes at times playful, at other times transcendent, if only momentarily

Matt Cahill More tactile and organic than the ambient I typically go for, which is refreshing. Alternately haunting, busy (but not bothersome) with field recordings in moments, and in some places reminding me (in the best possible ways) of Stereolab. I do recommend. Favorite track: Nocturne.

about

Ana Roxanne is an intersex Southeast Asian musician based in Los Angeles. Born & raised in the Bay Area to immigrant parents, Ana's love for singing began through her mother's CD collection of 80's/90's R&B divas. Raised in the Catholic church, she became a devoted choral singer, which led her to a brief stint at a small jazz & classical program in the cornfields of the midwest. During these years she toured to beautiful old cathedrals in nearby cities and became enamored with the sacredness of choral music and the enveloping sound of harmony. A near death experience, too, served as a connection between music & spirituality, and music as a healing art after facing tragedy.

In 2013, Ana was fortunate enough to spend time in Uttarkhand, India where she met an incredible voice teacher who introduced her to classical Hindustani singing. Living and studying with this teacher deeply impacted her outlook on the voice as art, as well as seeing the Diva as a symbol of divinity. This brief study was the catalyst that led her to finish her music study at the experimental Mills College in Oakland, CA, where she began to combine all of these influences into her current self-titled project.

In addition to the worship of R&B and pop divas, Ana's practice explores themes of gender & identity. In October of 2018, she decided to come out publicly as intersex, and is dedicated to being a voice for her community & speaking out about social justice for intersex youth.

Track Name: Immortality
I was only dreaming
A past encounter resurfacing
from deep violet water

I was only dreaming
A familiar gesture misplaced in time

I was only dreaming
of something I left behind

"Things that accord in tone vibrate together
Things that have affinity in their inmost natures seek one another"
-I Ching
Track Name: Slowness
In existential mathematics
the degree of slowness
is directly proportional
to the intensity of memory

The degree of speed
is directly proportional
to the intensity of forgetting

Why has the pleasure of slowness disappeared?

text by Milan Kundera
Track Name: Nocturne
And through the night
A light shines
And clouds fill the sky

And though the world sleeps
My eyes are wide
And for your name
My heart cries
Track Name: I'm Every Sparkly Woman
Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Anything you want done
Baby
I'll do it naturally
'Cause I'm every woman
It's all in me
