Short Hills, New Jersey (October 1, 2013) - Anya Parker-Lentz has been selected from thousands of artists to perform in the CBGB Music and Film Festival (http://www.cbgb.com) which takes place in NYC and Brooklyn between October 8th- 13th, 2013.  Anya will play an acoustic set at Tobacco Road at 355 West 41st Street in NYC, featuring songs from her album as well as new music she has written over the summer and is in the process of recording.  Doors open at 6:00PM and Parker-Lentz will perform at 7PM.

Anya Parker-Lentz, a senior at Millburn High School, has been hard at work playing live shows in New Jersey as well as in New York City after releasing her first album, The Giving, in 2012. With a number of small festival dates under her belt she spent the better part of 2013 performing at venues like The Bitter End, The Studio at Webster Hall, The Bowery Electric and Hat City Kitchen.  Parker-Lentz continues to participate in numerous fundraising events in her hometown to always pay it forward and appeared at 7 local events in September 2013.  She continues to write new music and is working on a few new singles with future release dates in 2014.

The album has been well received by reviewers and Parker-Lentz has been praised by Governor Christie who stated, “I commend you for serving as an inspiration for other young musicians throughout our state and I join with your family and friends in applauding you on a job well done.”  Connor Murphy, of www.TheCelebrityCafe.Com reviewed the album and wrote that as a young teen, Anya has "accomplished plenty so far, and sparks of an old soul pop into the music here and there; she's capable of achieving a brighter future through her music. Keep an eye out for her music." Her future is certainly bright as she looks forward to another season of live shows in NYC.
