Annie and the Beekeepers release new album ‘My Bonneville’ in August

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.

Currently consisting of Annie (lead vocalist/guitarist), Jeni Magana (bassist/vocalist) and Andrew Michael Buri (multi-instrumentalist/

vocalist), Annie and The Beekeepers are releasing their latest album, My Bonneville, on August 28th. Influenced by the wonderful songwriters and musicians who have shaped the Americana/Folk traditions, the group enjoys experimenting within the genre and cross-pollinating styles and sounds. Annie’s smooth vocals dance over guitar work appreciated by Americana pickers of all ages, embellished and thickened by flourishes such as banjos, horns, and tight vocal harmonies. The title track drives listeners to clap their hands, stomp their feet, and sing along about “The things we did in the dark in My Bonneville.”
