    ABOUT



 
Hailing from the small coastal town of Byron Bay, Australia, musician Annie Burnell was raised in salt water and sand. At the age of 10 Annie began writing her own songs, performing in the streets and cafes of her local community for loose change. She further explored her creativity at the Cape Byron Steiner school where her voice and writing were truly nurtured. After graduating, she’d stay up late devouring the novels of Anais Nin and Ernest Hemingway, dreaming of a future in France. One day she bought a one way ticket and packed her bags.

Burnell arrived in Paris naive and wide eyed, thirsty for change. Living on the left bank and working in cafes to get by, this new landscape became a harvesting of creative impulse and intuition. Her writing took on new form and an untapped musical identity emerged.

Inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, Annie delivers an offering of delicate guitar laced with angelic vocals that take you on a journey from pain to solace. Healing and rebirth.

Resonating as a poet, her words transcribe the meanderings of her mind in a melancholic reclamation of power lost. Her songs explore the deep mystery of living in a foreign land tied to the everpresent longing for the comforts of home. Love, loss and fear entangle themselves in her work, and yet a common motif is always hope, for “without hope we are lost” (Mahmoud Darwish)

LYRICS



ALL IS REBORN


Don't know how we got here,
folded into one,
I've got a gun against my head.
Organic flow , I want you to know.
Not my intentions when we slept.

And all my doubts are falling out
I know for sure.
That I do,
That I want it even more.
You did wake me
You did shake me
from this dream I was running from.

Even though you held me through sin,
you showed me that I had skin.
And what a beautiful door,
You opened for me to explore.

And all my doubts are falling out,
I know for sure,
That I do,
that I want it even more.
You did wake me,
You did shake me.
From this dream I was running.
Dream,
I was running from.

Everyone says,
that's the danger of getting to know a stranger.
You never know, oh I never know.
It's hard to come by,
always wasting midnights.
Waiting on your telephone line,
on our deadline.

And all my doubts are falling out,
I know for sure.
That I do,
that I want it even more.
You did shake me,
You did wake me.
From this dream I was running .
Dream I was running from.

Take it, shake it, all is reborn.
Take me, shake me, all is in store.



SMOKED YOU


I held you in my lungs
Oh darling I smoked you through fear
And all I used to be
She's so far out to sea and i'm running

I can go where you go
without loving you
I can go where you go
without loving you

Why does it come down
my heads in the clouds

I was falling
Heavy rain, heavy days
Building up and falling down
oh falling down

I can go where you go without loving you
I can go wherever you know

I held you in my lungs
Oh darling I smoked you through fear

We're sowing the seeds
towards a world of greed

It's falling

I do know the moment is a smoking gun
Why do I come down?
My heads in the clouds
