Annie Higgins' music is a fresh spin on the best of acoustic soul, acid Jazz, funk and reggae. LISTEN HERE
The songs are driven by the groove but add a uniquely Australian sound with stand out female vocals and creative sonic sounds. The music still celebrates the original illustrious sounds of the Wa Wa, Hammond organ, brass classics, and heartfelt bass but departs from older synths to a coastal acoustic feel. Her album 'Wise Woman' is due for release by MGM in Feb 2021 with twelve new songs.
"It's all about catching up with friends and family and chilling to a happy, vibe atmosphere. Great for your local party or favourite neighbourhood bar. I just wrote songs I would want to hear and now with Covid it's all about realising what's truly important and not sweating the small stuff." Annie Higgins
ANNIE HIGGINS and LUKE GERBER met up to write and produce an honest acoustic groove vibe that is classically Australian with funk, soul and Jazz influences. They've enjoyed the talents on the album such as JEFF DE ARAUJO on drums and percussion, SEAN VENEZUELA on keys, NATHAN and JACOB PARKS on Trombone, Saxophone and flute, JESSE TACHIBANA on Trumpet (players from Thunderfox and Hot Potato Bands.) Talented and seasoned executive producer MICHAEL HARDWICK has weaved together this instrumental delight at Underfoot Records to produce Annie's incredible organic and soulful album due out later this year.
“It's been a creative and fun process, We’re normal people and just love our music so it’s the kind of music that appeals to most people over a beer or a wine.
