Aanvi S


Aanvi S may be Aotearoa’s youngest pop artist. At just 10 years old, the Tamaki Makaurau born singer-songwriter fell in love with songwriting during the first Covid lockdown in March 2020.

Hailing from an Indian family, Aanvi takes inspiration from her rich and colourful culture. She is learning South Indian classic music (Carnatic) from Shalini Muthukumar. Aanvi also plays the piano, the trumpet, and the viola, and is a keen dancer, having learnt ballet, contemporary and hip-hop. Her musical influences include Olivia Rodrigo, Adele and Dua Lipa.

After her poem "Creativity is in you" was recognised in the Potential Plus UK International Poetry competition, in 2020 Aanvi discovered she could use her words to write songs. She was then enrolled at Eliette’s Music Academy, where she had singing lessons with Vesa Luma and Sophie Gibson. In 2020, she was awarded Songwriter of the Year at the academy, and in 2021, her song Music Is My Religion won the Kids Songwriting Competition. That same year, she was named Rockstar of the Year. In 2022, her song Auckland Anthem won Best Junior Song at the HookLineAndSingalong competition. She is currently receiving vocal lessons from Victoria Hollings. She is also set to play the part of Ally in Albany Junior School’s rendition of the famous Mamma Mia! musical.

In 2021 Aanvi was accepted into Access All Areas, a music programme through Establish Music. Aanvi was the youngest person to be selected for the programme. Her success in the programme has led her to being mentored in songwriting by Frances Dickinson, who has worked with big names including Lorde and Six60.

Having already released two original songs, Music Is My Religion and I See You Now, the latter of which was recognised by former prime minister Jacinda Ardern with a handwritten note, Aanvi is now gearing up for the release of her debut EP Emotions in May 2023. She may be young, but Aanvi is serious about music, with her ultimate dream to be able to go to the prestigious Juilliard Performing Arts School, and be the youngest Kiwi artist to win a Grammy Award. She can’t wait to show the world what she can do.

“Aanvi shows both exceptional abilities and determination in the field of music…She has a clear gift for melody creation and lyric writing.” - Frances Dickinson, Founder and Coaching Consultant, Establish Music.

“Aanvi’s gifts within music and creative sharing show her differences as sources of courage and leadership.” - James Hopkins, Deputy Principal, Albany Primary School.
