Originally from the mountains of southwest Virginia, Anya Hinkle has developed as a notable songwriter with her Asheville NC-based "Appalachiacana" band Tellico. Steeped in the tones of bluegrass and folk, Hinkle has toured regionally and nationally for over a decade with international tours as far afield as Japan and France.
Her song “Courage for the Morning” off Tellico’s freshly released album Woven Waters (Organic Records) was #1 on the Folk DJ charts in November 2018, and her song “Ballad of Zona Abston” was a finalist in the Hazel Dickens Song Contest and winner of the Merlefest Chris Austin Songwriting Competition in 2019.
