About Anna-Liese

Cover band
A four-piece original band from the South East of Ireland playing Alternative Rock.

Anna-Liese are a four-piece Waterford-based band made up of 2 Kilkenny men, a Wexford man, and indeed, a Waterford man. All four members of Anna-Liese - Emmet Conefery (vocals, guitar), Mark Walsh (vocals,guitar), Eddy Blake (drums) and Sean Carey (bass guitar) met through college in Waterford (WIT) in 2011, all studying Music. Both Conefery and Walsh were writing their own songs separately and both of them contacted Sean and Eddy to put some bass and drums on their tracks. Rather than starting up two new bands it made sense for the four guys to form one band. The guys recorded some rough versions of what turned out to be some of Anna-Liese's first set of songs. The recordings went pretty well which inspired the four aspiring musicians to continue writing together. It is difficult to generalise Anna-Liese. Its music encompasses slow tempos, melodic guitar passages, beautiful vocal harmonies, fast tempos, heavy riffs (often reminiscent of punk and grunge) and there is definitely some Indie-Rock in there for good measure. Each musician brings their own style to the table and each musicians’ personal taste is evident. Regardless of how you label Anna-Liese, you can be sure there is something for everybody in its repertoire. Sean, Eddy and Emmet hold Bachelor (Hons) Degrees in Music; Sean and Eddy; both accomplished Jazz performers, and Emmet; a gifted Classical guitarist. In 2016, the band completed its first EP "Chasing and Fading" and acquired some much deserved street-credibility with an number of gigs under their belts, predominantly in Waterford, Kilkenny, Cork and Dublin. The band are currently writing new material for their second EP, which they plan to release in the Summer of 2017. Anna-Liese is growing from strength-to-strength, building a reputable following and continue to establish themselves as an energetic force in the Irish original music scene.
