Aanvi . S - Single Review: Music Is My Religion

22 Jun 2021 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

Aanvi S is possibly New Zealand’s youngest singer / songwriter, who at just nine has released her debut single Music Is My Religion. Encouragement from her family and friends has seen her blossom into a prolific songwriter inspired by her poetry.

Despite being so young Aanvi S has already been recognised for her songwriting abilities, winning best songwriter of the year award at the Eliette’s Music Academy where she studies vocals, piano and band lessons. Aanvi S also studies Indian Classical music (Carnatic) online with a teacher from India.

There is a youthful innocence to Aanvi's songwriting which by in part is attributed to her tender young age. She has a positive attitude to music and already shows dedication, storing the dates of songs / album / musical release date like others remember birthdays.

Encouragement and guidance from her vocal and piano teachers propelled her to into recording this song for a wider audience. Although Aanvi S voice needs developing, she shows promise and hopes her music resonates with other young kids. The composition of this track is also her own, unpretentious with a catchiness.

Music Is My Religion, simply is what it is without complication. Over time Aanvi S will evolve like her music, and together they will grow to encourage the next generation of New Zealand Music makers to stand up and be heard. There is definite potential emerging.

About Aanvi . S

Aanvi . S is 9 years old and her world revolves around music. From the time she wakes up till she goes to bed there is a song for every mood. She stores the dates of song / album / musical release date like others remember birthdays.

During level 4 lockdown in 2020 in Auckland, Aanvi discovered that when she put words to her feelings and emotions they turned into poetry. Soon poetry turned into song writing when during a fundraising friends asked her to write personalised songs for them.

It wasn't until earlier this year that Aanvi showed that her songwriting could also be technically sound. She finds artists like Olivia Rodrigo, Meg Donnelly, Adele and Dua Lipa have strong influence in her music. For now she hopes her music brings joy to those listening and inspires other young kids that they too can speak through music.
