Check Out Anavee Girlfromtheheat’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anavee Girlfromtheheat.

Hi Anavee, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Ana Valenzuela & go by the name of Anavee Girlfromtheheat. I am a Mexican American artist/songwriter.

I was born in El Centro, Ca but raised in Calexico, Ca & Mexicali, Bc. Single mother & 3 older siblings is the description of my household. Always lived on Section 8 we weren’t wealthy at all but my mother always made sure we had a plate of food on our table. My childhood love was basketball but my passion was always music. It all began when I was nine years old, I’d close my eyes at the apartment complex playground of where I lived at & I’d pretend to perform in front of thousands of people. I knew exactly from that moment I wanted to be an artist, but High School is where everything really started. Fast forward moved to the Coachella Valley when I was 11 years old. In High School I began to write my own music & record myself at home with my laptop & a guitar hero game microphone my junior and senior year. High school grad, life happened, work, college, career, etc and I didn’t make music my priority for a few years, but I always kept writing music. Three years ago, I recorded my first album called Throwback. During the pandemic 2020, I recorded my 2nd album Perseverance. I’m currently finishing the final touches of my Spanish album. The album consists of trap corridos, reggaeton, and rap. Future performances on the calendar are marked, and new English music will be out 2022. I am where I am today thanks to my consistency, hard work, struggles, late nights, my family and my fans.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Nothing is ever easy, especially sticking with your gut feeling of following your dream 100 percent. Before I graduated High School I stopped doing music because my own circle of people made fun of me. Years later, I finally decided to get back to my passion, music. When I finished recording the album Throwback months later, I went through horrible depression due to my daughter passing away, and that put a pause in my music career. Thankfully I got out of that mindset and began to write and record music. Life tried to break me but I didn’t, I am stronger than ever.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am an artist/songwriter, not only is rap what I’m known for. The genres you can find on my albums & singles are: trap, reggaeton, pop, and trap corridos. What I’m most proud of is my fluent creativity, being able to write, rap, sing in English & Spanish. What sets me apart from others is being versatile, sticking to my own sound, staying original and true to myself, honestly that is my pride no one but God can take that away from me.
