Anousheh on illness, overnight success, and creative blocks – Ep. 009

Join me as I chat with Grammy-nominated songwriter Anousheh about what happens when a major illness upends your life, evolving expectations after a big success, day jobs that capitalize on your creative strengths, and much more. 

Anousheh has captivated audiences both overseas and in her hometown of Richmond, Virginia with her epic melodies. Drawing early influences from some of her 90’s music idols like Tori Amos, Bjork, and Radiohead, her songwriting style has always been rooted in introspection and metaphor. As an adult, Anousheh’s love of pop music, hip hop and indie rock has focused her songwriting into hook-driven, thoughtful pop songs– and in line with artists like Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding and Halsey.
