Based out of Boise, ID, Ana Lete is a band to watch out for, according to the Revue. Lead Vocalist/Guitarist/Songwriter, Ana Lete, creates music that is authentic, emotive, and surreal. In her songs, Lete isn't afraid to sing her truths and push the musical envelope.

"Her music is unexpected – experimental folk that is soaked in the provocative iciness of Iceland. There is a bit of Björk but it shares striking similarities to Washington state artist Briana Marela. From her debut album, Psychic Translation, her single “Aspens” is surprisingly stunning and intimate, something you would expect to hear from a veteran artist. Watch out for this band." - Ben Yung, the Revue
Local indie-folk artist Ana Lete kicked off The Olympic's Treefort lineup on March 21 with a soothing but quietly ominous set. Her wistful tunes, rippling guitar and subdued, plaintive vocals got support from Gavin Peterson's steady drums and Ashton Jenicek's atmospheric synthesizer. - Ben Shultz, Boise Weekly
"Boundary-pushing singer-songwriter, Ana Lete, wooed those in attendance at the District Coffee House with her heartfelt and intimate indie folk and enchanting vocals."
- Jess Casebeer, Northwest Music Scene

Lete’s journey began in January 2015, when her guitar instructor passed away unexpectedly. Hit with a deep wave of grief, Lete had no choice but to begin songwriting to heal her pain.
But as the year continued, she found songwriting useful in capturing other aspects of her life too – from breakups to loss of friendship to memorable moments in time with friends.
By combining captivating lyrics, jazz-inspired vocals, and 2.5 years of classical guitar training, Lete developed an experimental neo-indie folk sound that the Revue has described as “something you would expect to see from a veteran artist." Northwest Music Scene has commented that she is “Boundary-pushing” and “woos audiences with her heartfelt and enchanting vocals.” Those who do attend Lete’s shows often find themselves emotional and teary-eyed during her sets.
In September 2016, Ana Lete released her first EP, Psychic Translation. Now, Lete is in the studio recording her debut full-length, Eternal Hibernation, which will be released in Fall 2018.
When she’s not playing shows, recording, or touring around the Northwest, Ana enjoys feeding her coffee and vinyl addictions, visiting her Basque grandparents, petting dogs, and partaking in deep conversations with friends.
