singer / songwriter

Annette Buckley, who is no stranger to the Cork live scene, recieved rave reviews 
after releasing her debut album “the ever changing colours of the sea”, with 8.5/10 in HOTPRESS. Her song “whirlwind” featured on HMV’s playlist album.
She combines luscious vocals with great piano playing, think Bjork fused with Billie Holiday and
 you get a sense of her vocal dexterity and quirkiness. Her warm vocals captivates the audience and draws them into the visual imagery of her songs. A keen collaborator and instigator of many diverse musical projects; she recently recorded a 
duet of her song ‘Whirlwind’ with UK singer/songwriter Jamie Lawson, and has taken vocal
 duties on music by influential Irish instrumentalists Rest. Annette has also opened for Ryan Adams, Maria Mckee, Duke Special, Damien Dempsey, Declan O’Rourke, Jack L and Imelda May. She performed at Indiependence Music Festival 2012 and recently released her EP “Where no one can find me”. Annette is currently working on her next release.

“Buckley’s beautiful voice does justice to her evocative lyrics”

“One of Cork’s most accomplished singer/songwriters.”

“Annette Buckley is back where she belongs, with her haunting, deeply original songs.”
