A staple of the contemporary Americana scene, Annie Keating writes and sings like a woman who knows deep down that heartache is the price of hope, and she can make us believe -- in that way that only the best artists can -- that all of it is worth the cost.
Talent spotted by BBC Radio's Bob Harris, Keating released her debut album: ‘The High Dive’ in 2004. Ever since, she has been growing in stature and reputation with each of the 10 studio album and EP releases she put her name on; drawing formidable comparisons to artists including Lucinda Williams and John Prine along the way. In 2021, Keating released her eighth studio album ‘Bristol County Tides’, a record that tells an evocative story of love, loss, and finding what matters most in uncertain times, the album takes the listener on a journey from Brooklyn to the coast, through fifteen beautiful, tender songs. Standing as her most accomplished, inspired, and ambitious to date, the record was praised by Folk Radio UK as “personal and universal… unequivocally Keating’s finest hour yet.” Stream it here.
Becoming a regular fixture at festivals across the USA and Europe, Keating has performed her music to major crowds at the likes of Take Root (Netherlands), Glasgow Americana Festival, Maverick (UK), Buscadero (Italy) NXNE and The Brooklyn Americana Fest.
Hitting the road again in the Autumn of 2022, a stretch of upcoming European shows will see Keating assembling some of the UK’s finest players to bring an added raucous energy and unbridled joy to her oeuvre. Performing as The Annie Keating Band, the line-up will feature Scott Warman on double/electric bass (who recently appeared on Bob Harris’s charity release of Stand By Me alongside the likes of Mark Knopfler), rising star Joe Coombs on electric/acoustic/slide guitars (who has played internationally with a wide variety of artists such as Grammy nominated songwriter Yola on her Walk Through Fire Tour, Jaime Wyatt, Laura Evans, Robert Vincent, Sam Morrow and Lynne Hanson), plus Jamie Dawson on drums (a member of The Dreaming Spires and Steady Habits, and regular collaborator with Speedbuggy USA).
With new music on the horizon, standby for further news and updates from Annie Keating very soon…
