Since moving from her hometown of New York City to the UK seven years ago, singer-songwriter Annie Dressner has received considerable recognition from her live shows, as well as both her debut album, “Strangers Who Knew Each Other’s Names” her EP “East Twenties”. Dressner’s second in-studio album with producer Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore) was released 26 October 2018. It has been receiving rave revues, such as Shire Folk calling it “one of the freshest and most enjoyable releases of the year.”
Her songs have been played on Radio 2 and 6 music, among other local BBC radio stations and has been frequently played on the Caffe Nero playlist.
Dressner’s songs are delivered with such conversational ease, it often seems as if she is reading from an intimate letter or a book, set to music. Her straightforward lyrical style, sharp ear for wordplay and crisp, lilting vocals offer listeners a front row seat to her stories, as they take shape above the understated music.
She has been compared to an up-tempo Mazzy Star ‘Fade Into You,’ or Jenny Lewis.
