Biography

"Another killer track! Your music is so outside the box and cool and totally your own. It sounds unfreakinbelievable...tell me how are you doing it? Your music is just totally unique...very edgy yet accessible. You are a serious artist, end of story!" Bob Lohr (pianist for Chuck Berry)

"Annie Goliath is a singer-songwriter with a very promising future. Her music has been played on many a podcast, is frequently blogged about and has also been broadcast on the Tom Robinson BBC Radio Show. So the buzz is building, and rightly so! There's lots of influences that can be heard here, but the thing that's so interesting about Annie Goliath is that it's a fresh blend all of her own. 'Damaged Valentine’ is a corker of a song taken from her debut EP 'Push On Through' and shows just a glimpse of the great talent that is Annie Goliath! Young Rebel Fanzine

Annie Goliath is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer living in London Town. She grew up between the U.K and S.A and began composing songs in her early teens using the piano and acoustic guitar. As a young adult she moved permanently to London with a burning desire to share her music with the world. She experimented with various band setups and genres and also discovered the electric guitar, keyboard and music software. She has recently self-released her debut five-track EP called "Push On Through" on the 20th of September 2010 which you can preview in full on her Sonibids EPK. On four of the tracks she has collaborated with the multi-talented musician called Digital Freakswing who also plays drums/sampler in a live context. She is 1 of 5 winners in the Euro Demo Santander Band Competition and so a track of hers will be included on a compilation CD and she performed in Spain at the Grand Final. She has also created a striking animation music video for her track 'Damaged Valentine' and has recently become a we7 Presents and a Tunited Featured Artist. Here are descriptions of her music from some of her worldwide fans...

"Our clouds just turned silver lined listening to the beatin' pulse of the city in 'Rollercoaster Ride' then abseilin' down the valley of Electro Rock brilliance in the infectious 'Your Zone' then slippin' and a slidin' to the delectable and catchy 'Spill'. 'Damaged Valentine' opens my mind like a parachute, like a diamond starifying the darkest night with its swirlin' trippy art of sound and lyrical imagery worthy of Dali. These tracks groove with fractured drum beats, pulsin' bass lines and dazzlin' vocals that rewrite electronica/indie rock vocabulary zoomin' into the realm of intergalactic, glistening pop, gold majesty!"
The Fed Up Fridays

"EXCELLENT music I must say. Do you like artists like Portishead or PJ Harvey? Your music is evocative of those artists yet there is somehow more. It's twisted, dark and easy to become infatuated with...make way for a GIANTESS!"
Spider

"Your music is sensual, enchanting and progressive. It reminds me of Beck and Moloko. You've got a voice like avant-garde butter and we listeners are the willing popcorn!" Ada

"You are a talented lady, blending many different genres quite seamlessly. I like the way you've fused electronica with blues slide guitar in 'Spill'. It is easy to hear Billie Holiday's influence and I detect a hint of Janis Joplin in there as well. Incredible tunes!!!" Peter

Lyrics

Stardust

Written By: Annie Goliath and Digital Freakswing

I went to a familiar bar trying to dissolve all that held me.
Later I arrived at your doorstep. We talked so much, exchanged histories.
Both strung out on the drug of experience, we soothed each other to the core.
We shared our details for a moment. I left somehow still wanting more.

YOU TURN WATER INTO WINE AND TIME INTO STARDUST!

Both dreamers, cynics, somewhere romantics. We slipped into each other's overtones.
Nerves, heartbeats, bones and eyelids. Our tender echoes exposed.
Passion stains as teardrops do and we are carved from memories.
Oh dear, you are in my mind again. I am wrapped around your mystery.

HOW CAN WE KEEP THE MAGIC FEELING ALIVE, ALIVE, ALIVE?

YOU TURN WATER INTO WINE AND TIME INTO STARDUST!

Damaged Valentine

Written By: Annie Goliath

Storm breaks through the sands of time in the labyrinth of views.
I step over the wreckage in the city of tainted blues.
I reach out with these hand of mine. Could you be my paranoid muse?
I step over the restless, in the land where we win and we loose.

MILLENNIUM TENSION, YOU COULD BE MY DAMAGED VALENTINE.
MILLENNIUM TENSION, WE COULD GET HIGH ON CONVERSATIONS AND WHITE WINE.

Storm breaks through the sands of time in the labyrinth of views.
I step over the wreckage, in the city of tainted blues.
I reach out with these hands of mine. Could you be my electric muse?
I step over the restless, in the land where we win and we loose.

MILLENNIUM TENSION, YOU COULD BE MY DAMAGED VALENTINE.
MILLENNIUM TENSION, WE COULD GET HIGH ON CONVERSATIONS AND WHITE WINE.

Rollercoaster Ride

Written By: Annie Goliath

The cold collects a puddle. My heart is not for sale.
Your shell creates a puzzle. I follow your murky trail.
I fall into deep red wine. The outside world is postponed.
Your body breathes into mine; your pulse I have now known.

EMOTIONS POETRY, ROLLERCOASTER RIDE.

The mood creates a bubble. I can feel you sigh.
The storm is brewing trouble; a swirling, open sky.
Our frame creates a picture. The outside world is postponed.
A strange, delightful mixture; your taste I have now known.

EMOTIONS POETRY, ROLLERCOASTER RIDE.

C-PART: Can we exchange our cynicism for a playful fantasy?
