Since moving from her hometown of New York City to the UK two years ago, singer-songwriter Annie Dressner has received considerable recognition from her live shows, as well as both her debut album, "Strangers Who Knew Each Other's Names" (2011) and her latest EP "East Twenties" (April 2013).
Dressner is about to release her newest work a single titled "Don't Feel The Same" (release date: November 25, 2013). While of similar ilk to her previous releases, there is a bit more edge and pop added to the mix.
Dressner's songs are delivered with a such conversational ease, it often seems as if she is reading from an intimate letter or a book, set to music. Her straightforward lyrical style, sharp ear for wordplay and crisp, lilting vocals offer listeners a frontrow seat to her stories, as they take shape above the understated music. She has been compared to an up-tempo Mazzy Star ‘Fade Into You,’ or Jenny Lewis.
While in New York, Annie played a variety of clubs and bars since 2009, including Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, The Bitter End and Brooklyn's Jalopy. Since arriving in the UK, Annie has played at Festivals & venues throughout England, such as the Green Man Festival, Secret Garden Party, Cambridge Folk Festival, Cluny2, O2 Academy Islington, Norwich Arts Centre, Night & Day, and has opened for Emily Barker, Simone Felice, Kirsty McGee, Juan Zelada, Lucy Wainwright Roche & Fossil Collective.
