As a classically trained piano student growing up in the ‘90s, Anne most frequenty turned to piano-based sirens Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan for inspiration. Emotionally honest and lyrically led, her writing style criss-crosses the acoustic-pop spectrum from folk to country and back again.
On collaborating with Rob, she says: “It’s quite a magical thing that we’ve stumbled into, especially given that we have virtually no common influences. Right from the first time we started playing each others’ songs, it just worked – I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
Aside from her solo work, Anne sings with collective Calling For Serenity and has written and contributed guest and backing vocals/harmonies for projects in a range of genres.
Returning to songwriting after a long break, she started writing on Guitar in 2009 and released her first studio album These Hours in 2015.
“No one is more surprised than I am,” he says.”We come from opposite ends of a musical strand, and on paper, it shouldn’t work. I’m constantly amazed at what happens every time we get together.”
Rob has been playing guitar for over 40 years,collaborating with singer songwriters from Oregon to Oval, always returning to his American country folk roots. In recent years he fronted The Wayne Drury Project in London and contributes to the US version on an irregular basis.
