Annie's been singing since she the age of one!! There's a cassette tape to prove it! During her school years she brought home blue ribbons in state vocal competitions. In the early 90's, she founded the Allnighters, a rock blues band that played Indianapolis and regional clubs for several years. She has opened for Duke Robillard and Chris Duarte, and counts her experiences and friendships with blues greats Yank Rachell and Lefty Bates as invaluable. She's had the great pleasure of playing with most of Indy's finest rock and blues musicians. She was awarded a Billboard Magazine Honorable Mention in 1993 for an original song, "Mean Mistreater Blues," and named "Best Underrated Local Talent" by Indianapolis Monthly in 1991. She's currently interested in re-forming the Allnighters. If interested, please contact her at the e-mail address below or thru her Soundclick.com page.
