Born Jersey girl and raised on the beaches of Southern California, Annie Calder now calls both coasts home. Her influences stretch from 60s classic rock to contemporary alternative, and her music appeals to listeners of all ages. Her semi-sweet pop/folk sound is sprinkled with humor, poignancy, honesty, surprise and warmth. Soothing harmonies and hooky choruses deliver her straightforward lyrics right to your heart. She's been described as "Enya Meets Neil Young."
Annie's currently performing her songs as well as covers in small, intimate venues, coffeehouses and songwriter showcases, both in NYC (Bitter End, Living Room, Duplex) and LA (Hallenbeck's, The Mint, Genghis Cohen).
Annie's won many awards for her writing, including the numerous ASCAP Plus Awards, Songwriters Hall of Fame "Best New Writer" Award, and finalist honors from UK Songwriting and USA Songwriting contests, and she's been featured in American Songwriter magazine.
Annie Calder is a member of ASCAP, NARAS, SCL and NY Songwriters Collective. She networks with other music professionals on facebook.com/annie.calder, and her music can be listened to on www.anniecalder.com and Spotify as well as purchased on iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon.com.
