About Annalie Wilson
Annalie Wilson is an authentic singer-songwriter, actor and musician with a powerful voice that resonates with honesty, intensity and vulnerability. She has played extensively in London, toured in Poland and Norway and performed in New York and California. Annalie’s music is bold, fresh and unapologetically human. Drawing strains of her Celtic roots together with early influences of jazz, blues and folk-rock Annalie sings from the heart with intensity and passion, laced with her characteristic humour. In 2014 Annalie won the Rock The House competition as Best Solo Artist and performed at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. She also played at the Mayor's Thames Festival to mark the closing of the London 2012 Olympics. Annalie’s single “Skin” from the Water Snakes EP (2014) was premiered on BBC Radio London. Her third full album, The Cold Blows, (2016) recorded live with piano, voice and drums, is an intimate journal of love, loss and international risk.
Annalie is fantastic, she performed at our wedding reception and sang during the ceremony. She's got a beautiful voice and there wasn't a dry eye in the house! Annalie was happy to play the songs we requested and created an awesome atmosphere that really added to the magic of the day, I can’t recommend her highly enough!
I hired Annalie and her band in July 2013 for my birthday party. They were much appreciated by my guests for their sound, not too loud, but entertaining, and with the opportunity to dance if you so wished. Annalie has an attractive voice and presentation; I would thoroughly recommend her and the band.
Annalie and the band performed at a festival I organised in September 2013 called Awake in the World, held at SOAS, University of London. The band played for our big evening event, which was the social highlight of the festival. The music was a mix of jazz, blues, and original tracks, which all went down really well with the crowd. The quality of musicianship is very high and Annalie's own singing is warm and charismatic. They created a fantastic energy, building up through the evening and really sensing what was right for the audience at any time. They are a highly professional and versatile band, and I can recommend them for any event
