Biography

Urban Hippie. Bohemian-Pop Songstress. The Beez Neez.

When Annie Becker sings, people listen. Her soulful, sultry voice and undeniably playful charisma will have your feet tapping before you know it. A self-described urban hippie living in Montreal by way of Vancouver, Annie’s music is flavoured with a blend of bohemian-style pop, a touch of soul, layered on top of a folk foundation. As her voice booms over catchy musical harmonies, it displays hints of Regina Spektor quirkiness delivered with the power of Adele, with a cheerful honesty that remains dominant throughout every note she plays.

After losing both her parents at a young age, music became a necessary outlet for Annie. Music saw her through early childhood in the form of a Disney “Rogers and Hammerstein” classics album at age 11, where all proceeds went to the Canadian Cancer Society in her mother’s name. Music also ushered her through adolescence, spent mostly in the South Island Musical Theatre Society which in turn landed her in The Canadian College Of Performing Arts, where she ultimately developed her acting, dancing and musical skills.

Although Annie’s artistic journey is one of connectivity and humanity, her collective outlook stands in contrast with the fierce individuality of her music. A frontwoman to be reckoned with, Annie can effortlessly lead a big band performance but remains a solo artist through and through. She is most comfortable as her own one-woman band, often rocking just her guitar, a loop pedal and a mountain of creativity. Nowhere is this more evident than on the streets of Montreal, where she regularly entertains passersby with her acoustic guitar and infectious good humour.

With the release of her debut album “All About the Beez Neez” through Montreal record label Ambrosia Records, Annie is ready to bring her music to the world. Whether it’s at packed clubs, intimate coffeehouses, busy street corners or bustling music festivals, those who come across Annie will no doubt walk away with a smile on their face and a melody in their head.
