"ANNIE AUTOMATIC aids Haitian Relief at the Roxy"

The Roxy. Outside the line stretches for a mile with black clad fans waiting to catch the crisp, steaming hot opening band, Annie Automatic. The crowd filters in and photographers flashes are part of the light show as a winged angel, lead singer, French appears on stage.
Illuminated with a rock n roll rainbow of sound bursting from the stage into the audience, the crowd went wild as the band opened with a powerful, less raw and jagged version of "Animals".
Despite the sound guy forgetting to tweek the mics and drums properly, the band sounded smoother than ever before. This is only Annie Automatic's third public appearance and they managed to fill the room. No small feat for The Roxy on a rainy Wednesday night.
Steam rolling through two more tracks off their new CD 'Fighting Chances', the set was tent poled with the slamming single 'Nepenthe'. (Guitarist) Cash and (Bassist) Berg cranked a guitar solo and baseline jam that nailed the crowd to the floor. Cash's departure from bass into the guitar realm highlights his growing talents as a musician. The back up vocalists prove to flesh out French's hearty crooning very nicely throughout the numbers.
A new number, 'Firefly', showcased solid drums, an amazing guitar riff, and strong sultry vocals.
French commanded "You better f@ckin dance to this one" as they closed the set with a cover of INXS "Don't change for me". Exploding sound of a fantastic cover well executed emphasized the potential of this band, but an original song ending would have served more memorable. Overall, Annie Automatic raised serious funding for Haiti Earthquake Relief and delivered a fun, electrifying, performance.

"Annie Automatic's "Fighting Chances e.p." 4 out of 5 stars"

When it comes to making hits with an indie vibe lead singer French and his new project Annie Automatic excel to say the least. The first song on the album “Nepenthe” is an up beat tune fueled with sweet melody and hooks that could end up on a radio station near you. French’s lyrics never fail to paint a picture for the listener. He sends a message of freedom that’s honest and to the point. The very next song is my personal favorite. “Something Sacred” leaves an undeniable lasting impression that shows the masterfully evident backbone of this band. Anyone can listen to “Something Sacred” and make it there own. Just one listen to this song and you will be mesmerized by the charisma of the front man. “A song for Billy” is an acoustic track that will melt you in your seat. This song is an easy listening track, something nice to help relax your weary mind. The song “Animals” kicks it back up with the bass drum before exploding into a blistering hot chorus that will leave you breathless. The last song on the Fighting Chances E.P. is another fan favorite; “Candy Apple Kisses” will probably be their second single off the album. I got a little bit of an 80’s vibe from the song, but in a good way. This band has some sweet tunes and I look forward to promoting Annie Automatic and watching them grow into something sacred. - Morbid Miller's Top Unsigned Bands

Founded in Los Angeles in 2009 by CM French (Stereotype, The Why Game, Palmerton), ANNIE AUTOMATIC released their debut EP, Fighting Chances, within the first 90 days. French claimed they had "never had so much fun in the studio".

In 2010 they released 3 singles, "K.I.D.," an acoustic version of "Something Sacred," and a fun little version of "Over The Rainbow" (featuring Kaley Cuoco) benefiting the Humane Society.

ANNIE AUTOMATIC officially released their first full-length studio album, Don't Look Down, in 2011. Don't Look Down is a powerful album that showcases the band's versatility and undeniable passion for creating unique and exciting music. When speaking about this album, French says, "We can never lose sight of how amazing it is to have the chance to do what we Love, whether it ever makes a dollar or not. 'Don't Look Down' is a record of what we've been through - Life, Love, Passion and Pain - we hope it can reach someone at the heart of their adventure, and be their soundtrack to something new."

The band released a Limited Edition Comic Book, called "Killer In Disguise," in conjunction with the album release which features a fictional story about their muse, ANNIE, and band members as characters.

In 2012, a remix of an unreleased song "Time Lapse" caught the attention of Fruit Of The Loom and is featured in a national commercial for the brand. "Time Lapse (Jaws remix)" was released as a limited free-download along with the the band's more acoustic-based Songs From The Center EP, in the summer of 2012.

With influences that span all throughout music history, ANNIE AUTOMATIC is about beauty, chaos and freedom. It's about grabbing hold of the moment, and making it count.

Most of all, ANNIE AUTOMATIC strives for artistic honesty, and a level of passion and love that seem to be lacking in today's Alternative Rock.
It's that honesty that sets their sound apart, and proves this band is just getting started.
