On her debut album Casualty, Anna Akana takes an unapologetic and uncompromising look at all the battles she’s faced throughout her life, from depression to abuse to toxic relationships. But with the same unstoppable spirit and magnetic presence she’s shown in her self-driven career as an actress, producer, filmmaker, and writer -- as well as a social media superstar whose YouTube channel boasts over 2.5 million subscribers -- Akana turns all that pain into a message of strength and self-empowerment. As shown in her irresistibly powerful songwriting, Casualty is the outcome of Akana’s lifelong and unwavering devotion to music. With no limits to her artistry, she’s honed her sophisticated musicality while forging an astoundingly multifaceted career in nearly all corners of the entertainment industry. “The album’s called Casualty because even though terrible things can happen to you, you always have the power to transform yourself through those hardships,” says Anna.
