Annie Lynch has always been a contradiction, filled with uninhibited zeal but content with quiet simplicity. As a child, she’d vow she was going to eat her birthday cake “Until I’m as big as the world!” And now, she cooks up songs with the same enthusiasm and hungers to share those creations with everyone.
Beginning her love of live music after eavesdropping on rehearsals of the Cape Cod Little Fiddlers, Annie relentlessly begged her parents for a violin and squeaked her way through childhood lessons. She credits Joni Mitchell with opening up her ears, heart and voice, leading her to begin singing and then picking up guitar. By the age of 14 she began to write original material.
Relocating from her native Cape Cod to NY by way of Boston, Annie refined her Americana/Folk sound, earning comparisons to Neko Case, Dawn Landes and Gillian Welch. She had the pleasure of collaborating with the likes of Grammy-nominated producer-engineer Jack Gauthier. on her debut album which received rave reviews from the Boston Globe and Paste Magazine, to name a few. Backed by a group who became known as “The Beekeepers,” Annie released the EP Squid Hell Sessions and toured nationally in support. Annie and The Beekepers have sold out Bowery Ballroom, Town Hall, and The Berklee Performance Center and have also graced the stages of The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and festivals such as SXSW and The Boston Fok Festival. They have shared the stage with Josh Ritter, Justin Townes Earle, Nathaniel Rateliff, Dr. Dog’s Scott McMicken and The Low Anthem.
