Music of the Mountains: Anya Hinkle – The Mountain Ear | Start Classified


Anya Hinkle was raised in Southwest Virginia and currently resides in Asheville, North Carolina. Music inspired her from a young age. Her mother and stepfather were cellists in the symphony orchestra. As a child she sang in choirs and played the violin, so she was always surrounded by music. Exposed to bluegrass from a young age, she became more interested in bluegrass in high school when she began taking guitar lessons.

She cites Norman Blake and Tony Rice as major influences on her sound, having worn out her tapes in the car after getting her driver’s license. Describing bluegrass and folk as her roots, she attended bluegrass jams while living in Berkeley, California, and fell in love with the sound again. When she returned to Virginia, she started playing more bluegrass jams and festivals, but she didn’t start writing her own songs until she moved to Asheville.

She says she has always loved writing and that when she started writing songs it was a natural connection, but it wasn’t until she formed the band Dehlia Low that she combined her love of music and writing and began to create their own original music. She says that as an artist she is currently experimenting with other styles of music to try new things and that her current focus is on Americana music.

She loves being able to perform live because she loves to work her set around what the audience seems receptive to. Finding the right mix of happier originals, darker originals and even some covers is important to her, and recognizes how receptive audiences are to making her set the best it can be. She hopes she can create something in her live performances that can’t be captured unless you’re actually there, and she hopes audiences can go away with something new to think about.

You can catch Anya Hinkle live at the Gold Hill Inn, 401 Main Street in Gold Hill on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 at 6:00 p.m
