“The album is like a love child of the various relationships I have seen around me,” Anand said. “It’s inspired by all those love stories we have shared with each other and/or seen each other go through. They are stories which are as real as they can exist. I can guarantee that everyone who hears the album would at least be able to resonate with one song. We all have gone through it in some form or the other.”

“Faces of Love” brings out Anand’s vision of love in its many variants, from romance and family love to the deeper connections that bind us for life to one another through the ups and downs of our own journeys. The album features “Girl on a Train,” which tells of the organic process of a relationship from the highs and lows and even the delusional aspects of being together.

A native of India, Anand is following up on the success of her debut EP “Inside Pages,” which was released in October 2015 to much acclaim. The new album features 11 songs that include “Lose Myself in You,” “Wish You Goodnight,” “Perfectly Imperfect,” the title track “Faces of Love,” and others.
Musically inclined from early on, Anand took up the piano at age 5 and guitar at 12 with the encouragement of her family which recognized her talent even then. She would grow as a musician while attending Gargi College in New Delhi where she connected with other musicians. But a solo career was in the cards for Anand as she moved to the U.S. and studied at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles where she became a standout guitarist and songwriter.
Anand soon began booking appearances at clubs throughout Los Angeles, becoming a crowd favorite thanks to her soulful, jazzy sound. With a growing following after her successful EP release, the young artist is poised to grow her star even further with the “Faces of Love” album.
“Janvi is a tremendously talented and accomplished young singer-songwriter with her own unique, yet accessible material and cross-genre appeal,” said Carl Byron, Instructor, Musicians Institute Hollywood.
As she makes inroads in a challenging music industry with her eclectic sound, Anand embraces the work that lays ahead.
“I have a lot of ideas in my head but I haven’t acted upon them just yet,” she said. “I want my songs to have a bigger and a deeper meaning and talk about some issues which we generally don’t understand or are unable to speak about. I want to share stories which people suppress within themselves for whatever reason. Art, is just a beautiful format to express what you feel.”
