The daughter of local Grammy-winning artist Steve Vaus, Anna Vaus grew up in San Diego before moving to Nashville to make her mark as a country music singer-songwriter. Her Saving This Kiss EP was released in November 2013.
In September 2016, while still a student at Belmont College of Entertainment and Music Business, Vaus was selected as Miranda Lambert's first-ever recipient of the Women Creators Fund scholarship. The award provided Vaus with more than $40,000 in scholarship funds beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year.
Over the next few years, several singles were released, including "Champagne Problems" and "In Bloom," until her sophomore EP dropped in summer 2021. Co-produced by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Luke Laird, the EP spawned a single for “Girl In A Bar,” which was cited in Rolling Stone’s “must-hear” country picks of the week. A video for the track was directed by her college film student brother Jacob Vaus and shot on an outdoor set in a Poway parking lot outfitted to look like a pre-pandemic bar.
