2016 : Over 30 years ago, Annabel Lamb’s enigmatic profile began to appear on billboards across London, displaying the provocative caption above. As the buzz surrounding this new artist grew, she released her vocally androgynous take on the Doors classic, ‘Riders On The Storm’,
accompanied by a captivating video documenting a dystopian, kitchen sink
Chart success followed, but Annabel was not content to rely on interpretations
of other people’s hits; she wanted to pursue her craft as
a songwriter, embracing a vast array of creative directions and writing
over 3000 songs, including collaborations with songwriting royalty such
as Graham Lyle and Boo Hewerdine.
Recent years have seen her researching the folklore of the Western Isles of Scotland (book and CD in production), cowriting with a range of artists and even pursuing a second career as a birth assistant. These diverse paths have inspired and informed a return to recording and we are delighted to announce ‘Blessed
By The Songs’, a new album showcasing Annabel’s rich
voice and putting heartfelt, Folkand Americanatinged songwriting centre
The new album is cowritten and produced by Dave Dix, formerly of Black
(Wonderful Life). He also plays 12string on the album. The album also
includes contributions from worldrenowned musicians: Calum MacColl (brother
of Kirsty), Roy Dodds (Eddi Reader), Jake Walker (Jools Holland, Tom
Jones), Graham Henderson (Sting, Sinead O’Connor), Simon Edwards (Billy Bragg, Roy Orbison) and Kiki Dee on backing vocals. Annabel has toured with Dee for some time and also sang with her on the album, ‘Walk of Faith’.
Reflecting on the album, Annabel says:
'I have been blessed with a fulfilling career
as an artist. As a songwriter, I have so much more to say. This album
is a celebration of songwriting and singing, in a style that really resonates
with me. Whether you remember the girl from the billboards, or you’re
hearing me for the first time, I hope this album resonates with you too'.
Notes to Editors:‘Blessed
By The Songs’ is scheduled for release later in the year and will be accompanied by an intimate salon tour (dates to be announced), which will include the UK and Europe. Dates will be released on Annabel Lamb's official website www.annabellamb.net
