I have been thinking a lot lately about the past, present and future. What has happened, what is happening and what will happen. One of these things is out of our reach of control written in text books for us to memorize, while another is trying to sneak out undetected like a bandit in the night, fleeting. Which leaves us with the third tucked away in an old trusty suitcase, or stashed neatly in the back of a sock drawer. This being the future. If the future were an object that we could hold I would bet that a large number of us would treat it like a new outfit, only to be worn on special occasions. Maybe that fine china that only gets brought out on holidays. If you were to ask Raina & Jaia from the band Anima I think you would find that they have worn holes in the outfit and the sink is full of dirty dishes. These two singer/songwriters and life long friends have been livin”. That’s L-I-V-I-N. They have decided to keep that shit out and use it everyday. I tell ya what, with young adults like these two in the world, our future is looking bright.

This episode was a lot of fun to do. We got to sit and talk with Anima about their friendship, playing music to how exactly they decided to journey out into the unknown. These two are as bubbly and energetic as they are talented. Oh no, don’t let their youth and demeanor fool you. They got chops. They bring lyrics and harmonies that rival Simon & Garfunkel. Yeah, i said that.
Having been friends since kindergarten, Raina and Jaia have a special bond that not many people get to share with another person. The best part about their bond is that you can hear it in their music. Almost like their are sharing it with us through perfectly timed ques and hypnotizing melodies. With their eyes on booking more shows and traveling more, I am really excited to see where they go.
