    Annie Dressner was born and raised in New York City, where she cut her musical teeth on the busy acoustic music scene, appearing regularly at iconic venues such as The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall.

    Since relocating to the UK seven years ago she has received airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music and has appeared at Green Man and Cambridge Folk Festival.

    Her second album “Broken Into Pieces” is due for late October release.

    It is produced by Nigel Stonier whose many collaborations include Thea Gilmore, Fairport Convention, Martha Wainwright, The Waterboys and current BBC6 Music breakthrough artist Abbie Ozard.

    “Broken Into Pieces” features 11 all new Dressner originals.

    Contributing musicians include fellow New Yorker Matthew Caws of Nada Surf on electric guitars, alongside UK musicians including Stonier himself, drummer Che Beresford (Capercaille, Black Grape), Dressner's husband Paul Goodwin - a well respected songwriter himself - on keyboards and singer/songwriters Polly Palusama and Dan Wilde on backing vocals.

    Annie’s lyrics throughout are shot through with honesty and a rare candour... they frequently hone in on the everyday minutiae of relationships and life, catching the moments where hearts and worlds turn on their respective axes.

    These are set to direct, memorable folk/pop melodies and delivered almost conversationally in Annie's affecting, clear toned Manhattan alto.

    From the stark intimacy of "Bruise Beneath My Bones" to the light East Coast rock of "Get Out" via the almost campfire folk groove of "Heartbreaker", Dressner draws on a wide musical palette. And from the heartbreak of "Kentucky" to the understated euphoria of "Morning" the album runs the full emotional gamut.

    "Breaking Into Pieces" is released October 26 and is destined to break new ground for AnnieDressner in her new, adopted homeland.

Annie Dressner New York, New York

Recently moving from her hometown of New York City to the UK, singer-songwriter Annie Dressner has earned early raves for her “passionate, conversational awkwardness,” and for the “twilight poignancy” found on her confident, quirky debut CD “Strangers Who Knew Each Other’s Names.”
Her album of 11 original songs at times evokes Bright Eyes, an up-tempo Mazzy Star ‘Fade Into You,’ or Jenny Lewis.
