ANOUSHEH: the New Album by Anousheh

Kickstarter Updates
Hi,My name is Anousheh, and I need your help!Some of you may already know me as the singer from the Deep Dish EDM hits "Say Hello" and "Flashdance". Others may know me as a singer/songwriter from Richmond, VA, playing gigs at Gallery 5 and Balliceaux with my band. The truth is, it's complicated. I have always been a singer/songwriter, and I was fortunate enough to collaborate with DJ Duo Deep Dish back in 2006.
