About musician Ana Lete:
Based out of Boise, Ana Lete is “a band to watch out for,” according to the Revue. Lead vocalist/guitarist/songwriter, Ana creates music that is authentic, emotive and surreal. She isn’t afraid to sing her truths and push the musical envelope.

“Her music is unexpected – experimental folk that is soaked in the provocative iciness of Iceland. There is a bit of Björk but it shares striking similarities to Washington state artist Briana Marela. From her debut EP, Psychic Translation, her single “Aspens” is surprisingly stunning and intimate, something you would expect to hear from a veteran artist.” -Ben Yung, the Revue

“Boundary-pushing singer-songwriter Ana Lete wooed those in attendance at the District Coffee House with her heartfelt and intimate Indie Folk and enchanting vocals.” -Jess Casebeer, Northwest Music Scene
