We are ANNA VEXA, an established band from Orange County, CA. We're a blend of moody-aggressive-melodic-rock. After four 3/4 years with our singer, we find ourselves in the position to once again find a lead vocalist. We have several shows under our belt across Orange County and Los Angeles , including House of Blues (LA and Anaheim), The Troubadour, The Viper Room, Key Club, The Constellation Room, The Observatory. Last year we received a nomination for BEST METAL with the Orange County Music Awards, and this year we have received a nomination for BEST LIVE BAND, which our initial Live Showcase is scheduled for this coming January. The easiest way to describe our music is rock with thick and heavy guitars (when needed) with plenty of harmonic over-lays that cry for the right voice to blend with. Ideally, we want someone that sings and performs in the vein of great modern rock front-men such as Maynard James Keenan, Scott Weiland, Chino Moreno, Chris Cornell, Eddie Veder.
