Annie Wells

About Annie Wells
Annie Wells will be performing songs from her soon to be released 6th CD,”Lonely Hearts Club”. Jeff Spevak of Gannett newspaper says that she has “one of the nicest singing voices around” and the late, great Chuck Cuminale (Colorblind James) said her voice “is amazing.” But Annie Wells is more than just another pretty voice; she has a passion for creating songs that travel both to the troubled places of the heart and to the light of hope. Scott Gudell of Freetime Magazine once wrote: “As an experienced story teller, she’s constantly casting below the surface in search of deeper meanings.” Annie’s influences include Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday. Since she was 17 years old, Annie has delighted audiences with her sweet and soulful vocals and jazzy piano performances in venues large and small.
