"Socks and storms/ Quote"

I've played with Annique and as an artist she's an intense storm mixed with a sexy vixen-like attitude who's not taking any prisoners!... Watch and listen for her- she'll knock your socks off (and any other footwear you happen to be sporting)

Honeymoon Suite, Hilary Duff, Kelly Clarkson - Randy Cooke


Annique is not easy to categorize. Her music is intimate, distant, familiar, strange, dangerous, as delicate as a butterfly wing and as heavy as a hammer on an anvil...sometimes in the same song! The instumentation ranges from medieval to metal, the common thread being her beautiful voice, which adresses every conceivable human emotion from a whisper to a scream.

Feeling a bit camera shy



This five-foot, one-hundred pound, hazel-eyed beauty delicately tosses her dark flowing hair over her large set of black wings and walks onto the Horseshoe Tavern stage. Now in the centre spotlight, you can see the shiny studs in her leather belt with a set of biker-chick wrist cuffs to match. The scene resembles a medieval-goth-rock convention as a packed floor of shouting fans rush the stage to get a closer look at the dazzling band costumes and the female back-up singer/cello string section, with her expressionless face painted white. This is not a gothic gathering, this is dark-fantasy.

A child actress since the age of five and published songwriter by age eight, Annique is a seasoned songwriter and performer who commands the stage. She has starred and featured in dozens of lead roles for film,( Silence, Touched), television ( The Adventures of Shirley Holmes, Squawk Box, Goosebumps on FOX) and animation( Braceface, Angela Anaconda, X-men, and Cyberchase). She also appears on several music recording’s like Sharon, Lois and Brahm’s “Let’s Dance”.

Annique began to develop her songwriting skills as a teenager and by her late teens she was on a deeply emotional path to self-exploration and personal artistic expression. The result was her debut recording, which earned her third place in the Q108 singer/songwriting competition last year. In 2004 she was also a finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition in the rock genre. This marked the beginning of her professional career as an independent musician. This past December, Annique successfully completed the Seneca College Independent Music Production Program, and showcased songs from her new EP entitled "Once Upon A Time" which won her the Jagermeister Sponsorship Award at this year's Indie week. Her songs "Leaving" and Broken Angel" featured on "Once Upon A Time" were also Honorable Mentions at this year's 13th Annual Billboard World Songwriting Competition. This past year, Annique was also invited to meet with the President of Publishing at EMI Records in LA to discuss her music.

Her latest five-song recording is a powerful mix of Joan Jett-like attitude, Anne Wilson’s husky voice and a vocal range comparable to that of Kate Bush. All supported by her hard-rocking band, bold piano style and melodic cello. It’s hard to believe that this tiny fairy-like creature carries such a heavy sound. Her violent voice is buried deep within, traveling through her in upward direction, a transformation takes place, a subtle loss of earthly consciousness, a volcanic eruption, all clues that dark angels are on her side.

Annique is something straight out of a fairy tale. A sweet and innocent character with a dark side beyond her years, that only reveals itself when the lights go down and the music starts. Annique is a young girl with inner demons that possess her at times during her performance. Her songs range from the emotional results of relationships gone bad to the exact details of what she’s going to do about it. Through a unique combination of direct lyrics, elaborate band costumes and genuine expression, Annique shows us how these are demons that we can all relate to.

What is most striking about Annique is that the two personalities within her seem to be in tragic conflict. The result is an extreme dynamic energy shift that can be felt, even by those at the back of the room. Annique is a sensitive soul, whose appeal is somewhere between human nature and animal-instinct. Like an adorable kitten she will draw you in and when you are close enough to scratch, she transforms into a dragon and bites you beneath the skin. With no visible scars, you are left wondering what just happened…wounded by a deep awareness that these two extremes exist within yourself.
