Annie Tisshaw – Hollywood (Spotify)

“Annie Tisshaw with her new release Hollywood, through an eclectic electronica sound design invites you into a hypnotic vocal pop style. There so many things hidden in details here we have repeat lot of listens and still surprised from the layering game and the playful yet colourful vocal style.”

Annie Tisshaw is a Norfolk born singer songwriter who started learning classical piano from the age of 6. Starting to write music just on piano Annie was then later inspired by her favourite artist at the time Regina Spektor, after finding out that she wrote all her own songs. Annie then started adding lyrics to her compositions. Moving to London at 18 to pursue a career in music Annie studied at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. Writing catchy pop songs with electronic production it’s often the lyrics that set Annie’s music apart — sometimes deliberately discomforting there is sense of ownership and confidence; focussing on feminist and political themes in her characteristically self-assured yet playful style.
