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
"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

In January of 2015, Ana Lete's guitar instructor passed away.
She was shocked, confused, and upset at the loss of her mentor and friend. Her world was turned upside down.
But with this unexpected wave of grief, she started to write songs again.
At first, these songs allowed her to deal with her grief, but as the year continued, she found songwriting was useful in capturing other aspects of her life too.
For the next four months, she wrote songs in her spare time, and, after sending rough demos of these songs to her friend, Ashton Jenick, they started gigging.
At the age of 14, Lete began guitar lessons with Wayne White. Wayne passed on his love of the Beatles and gave her a lifelong love of guitar. When the time came for her to apply for college, she was accepted to the College of Idaho, where she studied Music Theory & Composition under Lisa Derry and Andrew Gades.
At the College of Idaho, Lete immersed herself in classical, indie, and jazz music. In her Vocal Jazz ensemble (ran by Dr. Marianne Saunders), she was introduced to Billie Holiday. The rest is history.
She spent countless hours singing along to Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and other jazz greats in her car as she drove back and forth from Caldwell to Nampa to visit family. By the time she graduated from C of I, Lete developed a singing and songwriting style uniquely her own, one that meshed her classical guitar training with the jazz, indie, folk, and classic rock artists she listened to so frequently.
Beyond Billie Holiday, Lete's influences include the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Tune-Yards, and Wye Oak.
Lete is currently playing shows and recording with Ashton Jenicek (bass/sax) and David Weatherby (drums). They play live in and around Boise, ID and are in the process of planning another release and another tour.
