About Annie Robinette
Award-winning singer-songwriter Annie Robinette has enjoyed a diverse artistic career. Portrait artist, illustrator, actress, dancer, lead singer in rock, blues, and alternative bands... But her work as a singer-songwriter is her first love. Robinette writes songs fueled not only by her own experiences, but largely by her empathic observations of other people’s lives. Her lyrics are direct, visual, relevant. And her sultry, powerful voice will really hit you where you live, delivering stories within which you might even find a piece of yourself you never knew was there.
