Anastasia Van Wingerden conjures a musical blend of world rhythms, eclectic pulses, varied Spanish lyrics, and irresistible feel-good folk melodies. Anastasia, also known as Stasia, is a native of Carpinteria, California, raised on music, Gerbera daisies and the lure of the Pacific always down the road. Surfing, yoga, running, painting, cooking, and farming are part of her vibrant approach to life and show up in her music as spirit, lyric and invitation. Her music is her own, with precedents in folk, influences from great balladeers to hot international exploratory beats. Adam Zerbe, founder of Carmel Valley's 4th Street Records praises Pacific. "Anastasia and her debut album are an intoxicating breathe of fresh California music! She is an artist born to sing and positively empower those around her.'
