Liz Anah escaped from New Jersey at a young age, never looking back. Her spare, smoky vocal style and simple but unforgettable songs grew out of a journey that included stops in Michigan for school, a pilgrimage to an Ashram in India, and serious hard time teaching in the Oakland public schools. Liz Anah's music has a kind of gritty innocence. Her songs are direct, potent stories of real-life heartache and shattered love, powered by an indomitable optimism that demands attention.

From 1999-2005 Lizanah was complemented by the rich liquid sound of electric violinist Peter McConnell, formerly of the East Bay band Spinray. The band was powered by the granite solid rhythm and soaring leads of guitarist Sean Griffin, formerly of Black Pole, and the rhythm foundation was laid down by New Orleans veteran bassist Hans Winold and ex Unity 5 drummer David Fuller. Together the band performed in many of San Francisco's popular music venues, including: The Hotel Utah, Paradise Lounge, Cafe Du Nord, Tongue and Groove, and The Great American Music Hall. Liz Anah will be releasing an original cd recorded with the Liz Anah band in 2010.

Today, Liz Anah lives on the coast South of San Francisco and continues to perform as a solo artist at local bay area venues. She is often joined by acoustic guitarist Mark Kostrzewa from Montara or electric guitarist Sean Griffin, formerly of the LizAnah Band. She has received high acclaim from critics for her first CD release, ‘Fade to Black’.
