Annapurna “AP” Tobler is a musician, singer, and songwriter based in San Jose, CA. A self described “grunge poet,” AP writes music with heavy riffs and complex themes. AP aims to share their experiences with anxiety and depression by crafting songs rooted in grunge and alternative rock. Their versatility as a multi-instrumentalist has allowed them to compose and perform all tracks for their songs in the studio. Live shows are typically performed as a 4-piece band with AP on lead guitar and vocals, with supporting drums, bass, and rhythm guitar. AP and their band has shared the stage with prominent acts such as Destroy Boys and Post Sex Nachos. AP also performed at San Francisco's Noise Pop Festival 30, opening for Commando.
AP’s musical journey began with the discovery of drums at the age of 8. They explored the sounds and composition of grunge, hard rock, metal, and jazz through their studies, adding guitar and bass to their instrument studies in the years that followed. AP has been gigging regularly since a young age, performing at high profile music events such as PASIC and Sweetwater Gearfest.
AP began writing and releasing original music in 2018. They draw heavy influence from the 90’s grunge, alternative, and punk scenes in their work, citing Nirvana, Green Day, and Weezer as significant influences.
