From small town, Voorheesville, NY, Annie Scherer takes artistry and songwriting to new levels. Combining her love for rock n' roll classics, such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and fusing them with alternative artists including Lana Del Rey and Lorde, she exhibits strong lyricism and haunting melodies.
At just 6 years old, Annie began classical piano lessons and devoted 12 years to classical performance. It was only a year later that she wrote her first song, a holiday tune that she sang for her music teacher. By age 12, Annie had taught herself guitar and started gigging and writing more seriously. In addition to her musical aspirations, she is also a visual artist and practices with charcoal portraits.
In 2015, she released her first EP, 'Dreams Like This' with the help of David Flint, a Nashville producer. The EP featured five original tracks and was released on January 1, 2017. That same year, Annie began her freshman year at the College of Saint Rose as a music industry major. There, she formed a band to back up her original music and has played at commendable venues, including the Hollow and the Low Beat.
In 2018, Annie was awarded the Producer's Choice for the 'Celebration of Music' PBS special in Troy, NY, hosted by Ethan Bortnick. She was rewarded a trip to LA where she was taped performing her original song, 'Andy Warhol'. The recording will be aired internationally in 2020.
'Loving You's a Cancer,' Annie's first single was released in January of 2020, followed by 'Andy Warhol.' Both songs received radio play on several stations, as well as numerous Spotify playlist features. 'Andy Warhol' surpassed 20,000 Spotify streams after a few months of it's release, and has been highlighted on notable blogs, such as WFNM and AnR Factory.
Annie is in the process of recording a full length album, expected to be released early in 2021.
