Anja Kotar, Kids Review
A mere 21-year-old, Anja Kotar began in the arts at an early age. She hails from the small central European nation of Slovenia, which has a population of just over two million. She began training in dance and piano early on (her dance group won the gold medal at the World Dance Championship in Germany), and she entered conservatory for piano and musical theatre when she moved to San Jose, California, at 14. It was there that she was finally able to truly immerse herself in another discipline she’d been working at for some time: vocal performance. She seized opportunities to sing in jazz troupes and has since trained with one of Los Angeles’ most prominent vocal coaches, Micah Plissner. For her hard work, Kotar was awarded the Outstanding Musicianship Award several times—as a soloist with her conservatory’s jazz band and with the vocal jazz ensemble. Kotar is a Berklee College of Music graduate. Her debut album NOMAD is her first full-length record and was released in 2017. Now in 2019, her creative juices are flowing and her new single “Kids”.
Release Date: February 1, 2019
