Anilee List is a unique and well-rounded vocal stylist whose neo-soul pop sound delivers unexpected power. The Los Angeles native’s distinctive yet versatile talent was evident at a young age, first taking the stage at two years old, but her artistry received global recognition during the 2021 season of American Idol where her "technically perfect vocals" and performance earned her a standing ovation from the season's judges (Katie Perry, Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie).
She attended the Los Angeles County High School for the Art where she was named a 2017 Youngarts Finalist, a 2018 U.S. presidential scholar in the Arts, and winner of Best Actress at the 2018 Jerry Herman Awards. Following her graduation, she went to Berklee College of Music earning a Berklee World Tour Scholarship and a Berklee Grant. During her time there, Anilee made her on-camera debut in the 2022 Oscar-winning film Coda. Anilee has performed on some of the most iconic stages in the country, including The Troubadour, The Hollywood Bowl, The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, The Dolby Theatre and Carnegie Hall.
Having been diagnosed with Tourette syndrome at the age of ten, Anilee is an active member of the Tourette Association of America. She is a passionate advocate for the disability community and strives to spread awareness and acceptance wherever she goes.
