Anastasia Hera & The Heroes: “Like I Am”

Anyone who’s heard Anastasia Hera can tell that she’s a big proponent of Black activism, making her a prime candidate for the spotlight on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This native Austinite cemented her charismatic sense of verbal cadence early on by memorizing King’s iconic “I Have A Dream” speech at a young age, and in 2015 Hera founded CAKE, a non-profit that empowers girls and women interested in musical performance.

Anastasia Hera & The Heroes shared two new singles as part of Austin Music Foundation’s Artist Development Program and their 2022 compilation ATX Gen Next: Adventures in Person including a luminous piece of R&B-funk perfect for Love Austin Music Month, “Like I Am”.
