Since moving from her hometown of New York City to the UK ten years ago, Annie has garnered rave reviews for her recordings and live performances. Her music has drawn comparisons to Mazzy Star, Jenny Lewis, and Phoebe Bridgers, whilst receiving airplay from BBC Radio 1, 2, and 6Music. We are delighted that Annie has agreed to play the Talbot Hotel, New Street, Oundle, Northamptonshire PE8 4EA on Sunday 18th September as part of our Little Ember Sessions.

Annie Dressner From her 2011 debut album ‘Strangers Who Knew Each Other’ through her second full-length Broken Into Pieces to 2020’s lockdown release Coffee At The Corner Bar, Annie has gone from strength to strength. Her straightforward lyrical style, sharp ear for wordplay, and crisp, lilting vocals offer listeners a front row seat to her stories.

Prepare to be moved, uplifted, and swept away. Coffee at the Corner Bar is extraordinary. Its emotional breadth makes it one of the best albums of the year so far, without a doubt. Exceptional – Shire Folk

buffer Shortlisted for Female Artist of the Year 2020 by Fatea Magazine, Annie has shared the stage with, amongst others, Echobelly, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Martin Stephenson. Her songs have received considerable airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 6Music (Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscroft) and on Radio 1 via her co-write with Saturday Night Gym Club’s The Nowhere Team, and she has collaborated and co-written songs with The Last Dinosaur, Saturday Night Gym Club, Matthew Caws, Polly Paulusma, Nigel Stonier and Tim Gordine.

Supporting Annie will be Dan Wilde, performing his own brand of richly observant folk both in the UK and around the world for the past nine years. In that time, he’s developed a growing fan-base and a reputation amongst those who know as "a fantastic songwriting talent who without a doubt will deserve and demand your attention” (Eclectically Challenged).

Three albums in, the evidence is clear he’s an extraordinary songsmith, while his ‘stunning’ guitar playing (Maverick Magazine) has led to an endorsement from Fylde guitars.

It is his profound lyrics, melded with a unique melodic sensibility, which shows the writer maturing into a poetic commentator and keen observer of everyday life’s patterns and tapestries in his songs akin to Damien Rice and David Gray. Dan’s words have been described as “deeply personal and introspective but engrossing and charismatic” (Folkwords) and they reflect his peripatetic restlessness.

Originally from Blackpool, Dan now lives in Cambridge — but his wanderlust has taken him touring through the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, the Czech Republic and Russia.
