Welsh born Anusha, is an award winning Singer/ Songwriter as well as Actor and Presenter based in the UK. Anusha's love of music began during her difficult childhood, but it was whilst studying for her Politics Degree that the exotic beauty began to write as a form of self therapy.
Anusha enjoyed the success of the release of two RnB/pop singles in 2009/2010 both charting in the Music Week charts and 'Are You Ready' spent 10 Weeks in the MTV Base top 10. Anusha toured the UK giving support to numerous acts, including Shayne Ward on his UK Arena Tour until the demise of the project in 2010.
Anusha began travelling to distant lands in a bid to find some answers about life, heal and grow spiritually, emotionally and develop as an artist.
Following her return, Anusha played the supporting role of 'Kayal' in feature film 'Tooting Broadway' and also began co-hosting 'The Anusha and Jon James Show' on Vertex Fm. The show interviewed tens of top music artists up until late 2015.
In 2016, Anusha played a surgeon in muti-award winning film 'Daisy', Paton Productions. Anusha also played the role of 'Mystery Girl' in award winning short film 'Freedom' by Fusion Media House.
2017 saw Anusha win The RBE Award for Excellence and The 2017 RBE Award for Most Consistent Performer.
Now, taking influence from Afro- Latin sounds and artists such as The Eurythmics, Florence and the Machine, Stevie Nicks, Tina Turner, Anusha is currently recording her album WE HAVE THE POWER and is due to release her first single 'Thank You (Muchas Gracias)' featuring Duane Flames this Summer. Keep and eye out for the video and track coming soon!

I am really pleased to be currently recording my album 'Dare To Dream'. Taking influence from The Eurythmics, Florence and The Machine and Lana Del Rey as well as Afro-latin music, this concept album is an autobiography of the highs and lows of my hard but beautiful life. It tells the story of how I overcame many struggles and rose out of the darkness to find my light within. I write with every ounce of my heart and soul and I hope that people who listen to my music appreciate my story.
My first single 'Muchas Gracias' featuring and produced by Duane Flames is due to be released this Summer. i am so pleased to say we just git our first play on the BBC Asian Network by Ashanti Omkar. Have a listen to the track below and eye out for the video coming soon!!
I really enjoy acting. I had the pleasure of playing of the supporting role 'Kayal' in 'Gangs of Tooting Broadway'(2013). Kayal is a young medical student, paying her way through school by prostitution. My popular, fiesty, street smart character is murdered due to her involvement with gang members in Tooting Broadway, London. The film centers around her friends trying to solve her murder and they find some deep routes. Her murder was no ordinary killing.
In late 2015 I had the pleasure of playing the role of a 'Surgeon' in multi-award winning short film 'Daisy'. The film was based around a real little girl called Maisy, who I got to meet on set. Maisy suffers from a an illness called Epidermolysis Bulosa. A rare and fatal skin disorder. It was an emotional, life changing experience being a part of the project.
In 2017, it was great to see short film 'Freedom' by the very talented writer/ director Ronnie Henry, acheive serveral awards. I played the role of 'Mystery Girl'. My character is a strong, no-nonsense, powerful woman, who tries to help a young man and personal trainer called 'Connor'. He suffers from a range of physhcological issues following a car crash and seeks comfort in my harsh but caring character.
I am looking forward to being infront of the screen again this year and taking on some challenging roles.
During my first record contract in 2008-2010, I had the pleasure of being a regular guest panelist on the Political Forum, BBC Asian Network, discusing political and social issues. This was something I thoroughly enjoyed.
From 2010- 2015 I had the please of co-hosting a show for Vertex FM. It was a wonderful experience interviewing some of the hottest artists in music. I have interviewed Maverick Sabre, DJ Fresh, Sway, Bluey Robinson, Wretch 32, Misha B to name but a few.
As a politics graduate, I have always been passionate about social/ political issues and have been very fortunate to spread knowledge and to have been involved in documentary films, such as 'Maisy, the making of Daisy' which looks into the the terminal illness Epidermolysis Bullosa.
Other really interesting documentaries, I've had the pleasure of being involved with are 'Skin Colour and The Media' by Kashif Boothe and also MDNK presents 'Brown Paper Bag Theory'. Both looking at issues to do with racism.
2018 will see me presenting and investigating various issues in society for a documentary series for BNGTV. We will be looking at topics such as Mental Health, Knife Crime, Gang Culture, Sexism in the Entertainment Industry.
Since early 2017, I have been the host for RBE Music Showcases which occur once a month across London. The event sees a variety of talented acts, from all genres come together for this special show.
I am also pleased to be working with Urban News London as co-host for 'Hot or Not', a music show which showcases the best in London talent, in 2018.
