A mix of eclectic influences; artists like: Nancy Wilson, Dianne Reeves, Sade and Prince; her style blends meaningful lyrics, solid grooves and catchy melodies. Rave reviews at radio, television and print media say she’s one to watch while her music climbs the national charts. Carol Handley, respected radio personality says, “The long awaited new Barbie Anaka project sounds fantastic. The title track, Speechless, is a favorite song on Smooth In Seattle. Great production values and fits right into the Smooth Jazz vibe. Nice to have a new vocalist to share with the format.” Seattle radio host Cedric James of KWJZ-FM, 98.9 “Smooth Jazz” states, “Barbie Anaka is a jazz vocalist well on her way to earning national recognition.” Los Angeles’ New Music Weekly magazine writes, “Were we ever impressed… this artist combines brains with beauty… and has excellent material that is very radio ready.”
