Swedish Pop/Folk Singer Songwriter Annielle Releases 4-track EP Recorded With Taylor Swift Producer

Annielle grew up in a small town in Southern Sweden, and started making her own variety of Americana-vibed pop-folk at an early age, with inspiration from the likes of Björk, Sting, and Norah Jones. She had her breakthrough in 2010, with the single, ‘Summer Love’, receiving heavy rotation in Sweden. She followed this by winning the Svensktoppen Nästa radio chart competition in 2011, as well as tours of Sweden, Norway, and the USA.

In 2012 Annielle went to Nashville, Tennessee, where she recorded 18 songs with producer Jeremy Hunter, who’s known for his work with Taylor Swift, and Jill Scott. With the promise of at least 3 EPs to come, Annielle is set to release ‘TBT 2012 Pt. 1’ on October 26.

A four track acoustic EP, ‘TBT’ opens with the beautiful folk song, ‘We’re Butterflies’, followed by a cover of the rock song, ‘1000 Miles’ (originally by Swedish rock band, H.E.A.T.), the ballad, ‘Come Run’, and the emotionally driven pop track, ‘Never Winter’ completing the set. All songs have been either written or co-written by Annielle, with the exception of ‘1000 Miles’.

The EP is the first part of a planned 3-part series of records set for release in the coming year. ‘TBT 2012 Pt. 1’ covers the emergence of Annielle from a dark period in her life, and combines both positive and melancholy vibes. Annielle will be performing several shows in Sweden this autumn, before taking a solo tour in the spring/summer of next year. Additionally she will be performing with her group, Spring City. You can find out more information about Annielle online on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, as well as her official website.
