There’s no doubt she’s a talented, gifted woman in the indie music business and her intentions through every song go from being honest, loud, and catchy to extremely vulnerable.” - TunedLoud Review

artist bio

Songstress and indie rock vocalist hailing from Atlanta GA, Anji Kaizen (aw-nee k-eye-zen) is the front woman and mastermind of a project that ranges from angsty alternative rock to indie pop in the veins of Paramore, Chvrches & Pvris. With powerhouse vocals, soaring melodic lines and shredding guitar riffs, each song is a unique journey through a musical soundscape of raw emotion. Inspired by artists such as Lights, Hayley Williams and Ellie Goulding, Anji Kaizen's songs are intimate and poetic confessions that bring a refreshing honesty with thick vocal layers and big hooks.

Her previous releases  range from the upbeat alt-pop Light EP, which released as a string of singles in 2020 with music videos, to the guitar-driven and moody Dark EP that was released in 2018. A full-time professional artist who not only sings, songwrites, and plays a plethora of instruments, she’s also been recognized for her abilities as a composer & producer by winning the LaGrange Film Festival award for her original soundtrack. Pair this with winning recording time at the Columbus Songwriter Showcase and receiving the Griff Parrish Songwriting award, it’s clear she has already established herself as an important voice in the Atlanta music scene since she began playing with her band in 2018.

Her unique talents immediately propelled her into the stage lights after graduating Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Composition & Music technology. Her first release after graduation, “Titanic,” an emotional electropop ballad, became the single that kick-started her career as it garnered world-wide attention when it became the credit song for the indie film “Crimson Tower” playing at international film festivals. The single was then followed up by the release of the Dark EP in summer of 2018, which headlined at The Masquerade and was followed by a string of shows across the state, including venues such as The Vinyl, Eddie’s Attic, Pure Life Studios and more. 

Her latest single "Monster" is releasing October 29th. She is looking forward to releasing the single under her re-branded artist name in October 2021 as a teaser for an upcoming EP in 2022.

What the Pro's are saying:

To cut through the clutter in today’s music industry, it takes not only talent, but tenacity... and she is a poster child for that."

Conscious Electronic - "Scales & Anji Kaizen Craft Addictive Spaceship Ride 'Outer Orbit' Premiere" https://consciouselectronic.com/2021/06/25/scales-outer-orbit-ce-premiere/ - "Scales has enlisted the serene vocals of fellow ATL resident, songstress, and newcomer Anji Kaizen. The two come together in perfect harmony with Scales taking the liberty of playing heavily with her vocals for optimal reverb, creating a hypnotic echo and expansive fx. At the same time, Kaizen’s vocals still pave the entire way as listeners cling to her angelic voice."

York Calling - "Discovery: Anji Kaizen" https://yorkcalling.co.uk/2021/06/12/discovery-anji-kaizen/ - "Anji Kaizen is an American pop singer and songwriter – Center is her latest catchy song to be released... Anji has a great singing voice and the simplistic chorus helps to give it an anthemic feel – after a couple of listens Center should soon be stuck firmly in listeners heads."
