Says ANANYA “With Livin’ the life, I am following my dream. I’ve always loved music, and making music. The song is about finding who you are, because I believe that only by doing that, will you find happiness. For me I discovered I needed to try to spread love to others. For other people it might mean something else – playing football or looking at the sea. I believe that if you discover who you are really are, you can overcome any challenge.”
With love for music since childhood, Ananya has been inspired by a number of International artists such as Ed Sheeran, The Fray, Cheryl Cole, Eminem, AR Rahman and Coldplay.
