Anne-Marie is a BBC Introducing singer-songwriter with a distinct vocal tone which captivates audiences who enjoy soul, funk & blues with a hint of reggae & folk! Anne-Marie's songs tell stories of freedom, capitalism, and human connection, and her unique musical style does not confine itself to one specific genre.
Anne-Marie's debut EP "Intuition" was released in May 2018, presenting a fresh new tone to the live music scene. Her track “Zombie Paradise” was added to the Brum radio A list in April 2018 and was also selected to be played as part of the up and coming artists promotion for unsigned artists on Nova Radio station.
Following the success of "Zombie Paradise" this track in addition to her track "Vibe Attracts a Tribe," was instantly selected by BBC Introducing and for two consecutive weeks on BBC radio West Midlands. Anne-Marie's third BBC radio play was the title track for her debut EP "Intuition" in which BBC described the track as "Stunning...confident, and a lovely maturing sound that...takes you to another place."
In 2019 Anne-Marie's track "I Like" was strongly shortlisted and performed at Thame Town Music Festival's songwriting competition.
Over the years Anne-Marie has collaborated with a wide range of artists, DJ's, producers, and MC'S, performing gigs in the UK and abroad. Most notably, in 2019 Anne-Marie performed at Stratford River Festival 2019 on the main stage to over 70,000 visitors. Following that in 2019 Anne-Marie was booked to play at two well established underground music venues in the heart of Germany’s artistic quarter of Neukölln, Berlin. In 2019 Anne-Marie succeeded in being the first artist to win the opportunity to perform in front of a specially selected audience of music fans for Songwall’s “Songs in the Sky” event at the top of the Iconic Grade II Rotunda Building looking down across the whole of Birmingham City.
Anne-Marie Allen is an artist that can bring kudos to your musical experience with an authenticity and audience connection that is rarely seen in independant artists. Her addictive hooks, melodies and sing along original songs make audiences want to dance and wake up the next day singing the songs!
