Annie Bass' etheral and intoxicating music seems to hang in the air when you hear it - a perfect marriage between her heady voice and swoon-worthy lyrics. This accomplished vocalist, songwriter and producer is on the cusp of big things after receiving wide critical acclaim for her releases 'While I'm Waiting' and 'Don't Want'.
Adelaide-born and now Sydney-based, Annie's musical interest from a young age could probably be more accurately described as 'obsession'. From 5 years old she was composing music and writing songs for her family. As that obsession developed, Annie earned her chops performing in Jazz bands, an influence that still clearly comes through in her music today. After meeting Adelaide producer Oisima, she delved into electronic music, continuously working with him and other producers to develop her sound and own original tracks, resulting in an inspired fusion of garage-tinged electronica.
With a genre-transcendent list of musical influences, from Nina Simone and John Coltrane to James Blake as well as contemporaries BUOY, Kllo, Christopher Port and Dro Carey, Annie is drawing inspiration from through the ages and her sophisticated lyricism is testament to that. She has already performed at Secret Garden, Splendour in the Grass, Groovin' The Moo and Falls Festival, played supports for Nicole Millar, Elizabeth Rose, Banoffee and Kilo Kish, and with her track 'Don't Want' being added to full rotation on triple j, this already impressive resume is only set to grow.
Music is all about finding that 'goosebumps' moment, a moment that is precious in its rarity, and a moment that Annie Bass delivers. Such emotion-filled music is cathartic for both the artist and the consumer, or as Annie sums it up - "As Erykah Badu said “music is my therapy”.
