“Relatable and inspirational… embroils a listener to hang on to every note and wish the song would go on for longer”

Annalie is a musical chameleon: singer, songwriter, actor, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Tenderness dances with yearning in a voice that comes from somewhere deep within, a place of vulnerability and power that is as cathartic as it is uplifting. After 3 years performing under the alias Luna Bec, Annalie removes the mask to reveal her true authentic self, scars and all.

Her stage show is a truly immersive experience of heartfelt storytelling and emotional reckoning. Songs of grief and loss are balanced with impassioned anthems for social change, interspersed with moments of leftfield humour that call to mind Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits. Like Cohen, she spent several years studying and practising Buddhist meditation, which left an indelible mark on her songwriting.

Annalie began writing music aged 7, and at age 15 composed her first film score for the critically acclaimed Italian film Il Lentowhich premiered at the Venice Biennale. Raised on a diet of folk, jazz and blues, it is unsurprising to find these early influences embedded into her tunes, peppered with later discoveries of funk and hip-hop.

Instrumentally she combines stripped back guitar picking with vocal loops to create swathes of harmony, echoing her decade long love affair with traditional folksong from the Republic of Georgia. An occasional return to her primary instrument, the piano, brings further dimension and soul to her sound.

Annalie’s EP was released in 2020 and its title song “Power To Change” is a haunting call to arms on the theme of the climate crisis. During the lockdowns she produced a series of contemplative protest songs including “Breath,” whose powerful video featuring ex-National Ballet dancer Shevelle Dynott screened at New York’s 2023 NoirFest.

Annalie enjoyed a sold out headline show at Green Note in Camden in 2023, and has performed at Rumble Festival in 2022, and How The Light Gets In festival in 2019 at Kenwood House.

Her activist work has seen her lend her skills to several movements and she has played at The XR Vaults Festival, South West Uprising in Brockwell Park with Johnny Flynn as well as fundraising events in aid of Medical Aid for Palestinians.

In 2023 Annalie released the heart-warming single and video “Everyday Magic,” a testament to her close friend who died suddenly during the pandemic.
