Folk / Acoustic / Indie
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.” Filled with “a majestic loneliness,” Dressner’s poignant songs are delivered with such conversational ease, it often seems as if she is reading from an intimate letter or a book, set to music.
Her straightforward lyrical style, sharp ear for wordplay and crisp, lilting vocals offer listeners a front-row seat to her stories, as they take shape above the understated music.
The album will soon be featured via iTunes. As seen in the reviews below, Dressner is making a strong connection with listeners. Her collection of 11 original songs at times evokes Bright Eyes, an up-tempo Mazzy Star ‘Fade Into You,’ or Jenny Lewis.
