Enniskillen-born singer-songwriter Annie Falconer, who is currently in the process of recording her debut album, will perform a live set at the Ardhowen Theatre Gallery Bar at the end of this month.

Annie started playing the piano at 11 years old and later began performing her songs live in Preston after she finished college there.

At this time she began her path of self-inquiry, which became the inspiration for her unique songs.

“Through music I get to explore the inner workings of the mind and redefine what it means to be human; the good, bad and the ugly, the illusion of separateness and the ‘beingness’ that we all share beneath the story of ‘the me’,” said Annie, who cites her musical influences as Kate Bush, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Peter Gabriel and Joni Mitchell.

By chance, through a friend’s connection, Annie travelled to London and met producer Andy Wright, who has worked with the likes of Simple Minds, Eurythmics, Imelda May and Jeff Beck.

Andy’s enthusiasm for Annie’s songs was clear from the start and he has since begun collaborating on her debut album, which should be ready for release next spring.

“Annie is an inspirational artist. She embodies both the music she writes and the concepts she hopes to communicate. A true star in the making,” said Andy.

Annie is performing in the Ardhowen Theatre’s Gallery Bar on Friday, September 30. Tickets can be purchased via the Ardhowen website.
