Since moving from her hometown of NYC to the UK ten years ago, singer-songwriter Annie Dressner has garnered rave reviews for her recordings and live performances. From her 2011 debut album ‘Strangers Who Knew Each Other’ through her second full-length ‘Broken Into Pieces’ to 2020’s lockdown release ‘Coffee At The Corner Bar’, Annie has gone from strength to strength. Her straightforward lyrical style, sharp ear for wordplay, and crisp, lilting vocals offer listeners a front row seat to her stories.
Shortlisted for Female Artist of the Year 2020 by Fatea Magazine, Annie has shared the stage with, amongst others, Echobelly, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Martin Stephenson. Her songs have received considerable airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 6Music (Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscroft) and on Radio 1 via her co-write with Saturday Night Gym Club’s ‘The Nowhere Team’, and she has collaborated and co-written songs with The Last Dinosaur, Saturday Night Gym Club, Matthew Caws, Polly Paulusma, Nigel Stonier, Tim Gordine — and most recently, David Ford.
David Ford and Annie Dressner started their musical collaboration in early 2022. But listening to the blend of their voices and their timeless songwriting, you’d be forgiven for thinking they had been making music together forever. In July 2022 they will take to the road in support of debut release, 48 hours, a record named after the two-day burst of creativity that was its origin.
Annie Dressner was born and raised in New York City where she recorded the first of three acclaimed albums. Annie’s heartfelt, confessional writing style and honest vocal delivery have won her supporters at BBC Radio 2 and 6Music and secured numerous festival appearances.
David Ford is an award-winning songwriter and has been hailed by The Guardian as one of Britain’s finest live performers. His 2022 solo album May You Live in Interesting Times was album of the week in both The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Times.
