VICTORIA PARK

Anne-Marie

Main Stage


 

Future superstar Anne-Marie doesn’t do things by halves. Ever since she was two years old and joined her local performing arts school, she’s wanted to be the best at whatever she puts her mind to. Roles in two West End productions suggested she was pretty good at singing and acting, so when she started doing karate she won two international championships by the age of seventeen. But music has always been her passion and after touring the world with Rudimental, Anne-Marie struck out on her own.

In 2015 she laid down a marker in the shape of the progressive Karate EP, a collection of three vastly different songs, produced by the likes of Two Inch Punch and Brad Ellis, all anchored by Anne-Marie’s supple voice and inherent talent for melody.

Anyone wondering what Anne-Marie’s style is need only listen to the multi-layered Karate. Built around delicate finger clicks, chopped up vocals and a beautifully laid-back melody, on the surface it feels like a hazy sex jam, but as is the way with Anne-Marie, it’s not exactly as it seems.

Having worked with some of the most exciting names in pop – from Wayne Hector to Two Inch Punch to Steve Mac to Fraser T Smith to Jean Baptiste to Rudimental – Anne-Marie’s debut album is already shaping up to be one of next year’s best. It’s rare in pop to find a proper character who knows exactly what they want, who they want to be and will work to achieve it. Anne-Marie is that pop star.

Having released three smashes in 2016 – ‘Alarm’, ‘Do It Right’, and Christmas No 1 ‘Rockabye’ with Clean Bandit, Anne-Marie is one of the most exciting names in pop. Don’t miss her at Lovebox.
