She started her musical education as a teenager. Being in high school she also attended music school where she learned to play contrabass. She often took part in numerous vocal competitions. She first appeared publicly in 2002, as a participant of a first season of Polish edition of a TV program Pop Idol, in Poland called Idol. She managed to reach the final top 10.

In February 2004, she released her debut album, Samotność po zmierzchu (eng. Solitude After Dusk). The record turned out to be a huge success and sold very well. The album was promoted by singles: « Tego chciałam » (eng. That’s What I Wanted), « Charlie, Charlie » (cover of the song by A Camp) and « Inna » (eng. Different) - a song about an alienated girl.

Ania presented her retro-inspired image on the cover of the record as well as in the music video of the single « Trudno mi się przyznać » (eng. It’s Hard to Admit). The album gained even greater success than the top-selling debut record and was praised both by the critics and publicity. It was promoted by three singles, including very successful second single « Czekam… » (eng. I’m Waiting…). In the end the album became a Platinum Record[3].

Her third album, W spodniach czy w sukience? (eng. In Trousers or in Dress?), was released in June 2008. The first single was « Nigdy więcej nie tańcz ze mną » (eng.

In the fall her next solo single was released, « Nigdy nie mów nigdy » (eng. Never Say Never), from the movie of the same name. Currently she’s working on her fourth studio album.
