Trained as a classical musician, now an acclaimed folk, musical theatre and actor-muso, Anne-Marie’s wide range of both vocals and skill sets, means she has performed and recorded for leading UK theatres like the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Session Singer: With a 3 octave range Anne-Marie’s vocal styles includes folk, MT, opera and pop. The following is a reel made up of session sing work including for the National Theatre’s “My Brilliant Friend”, RSC’s “Day of the Living” and “These Trees Are Made of Blood” for the Southwark Playhouse and Arcola Theatre.
“Take Flight” is written by James Fortune for Melly Stills’ production of “My Brilliant Friend” and, with all vocals sung by Anne-Marie, featured in the soundscape of the production Rose Theatre in Kingston 2017 and the National Theatre 2019-20.
“My Little Bird” opened the sell out smash hit “These Trees Are Made of Blood” which premiered at the Southwark Playhouse in 2015 and returned in 2017 to the Arcola Theatre
Instrumentalist: Anne-Marie plays (and has lockdown access to) cello, piano accordion, Celtic harp, ukuele, bass guitar, recorders, keys and guitar. Outside of lockdown you can add double bass to the list. And here is a reel of most of them.
Her hobby of adapting popular songs into unusual styles and on unorthodox instruments can be found on her Youtube Channel and includes: Alanis Morisette’s “You Oughta Know” for ukulele (wait til you’ve seen it); “Man of Constant Sorrow” for cello; “All About the Bass” on.. the bass; and “Wind Beneath My Wings” 80’s classic for harp.
This all started many years ago with a version of The Eagles’ “Hotel California” which became the credits for Ragged Crow’s documentary “The Promoter.” Directed and produced by Sam and Ed Edwards, it won the Grand Jury Best Documentary prize at the London United Film Festival 2013.
