For some, the name Anne-Marie may not ring many bells, but you’re almost certain to have heard some of the tracks she has featured on recently. Having toured with English drum and bass duo Rudimental for the past two years as their lead live vocalist, Anne-Marie has started to make a name for herself performing on the band’s tracks ‘Love Ain’t Just a Word’ with Dizzee Rascal and ‘Rumour Mill’ with Will Heard, and has recently collaborated with Wretch 32 on ‘Alright With Me’.
Now Anne-Marie is making a name for herself with the release of her EP ‘Karate’ last year, followed by singles ‘Boy’ and more recently, ‘Do It Right’. Best described as a fusion of R&B, hip-hop and pop, Anne-Marie’s music stands out for all the right reasons in today’s heavily crowded music scene.
She is not one to shy away from performing live, with a string of gigs under her belt at venues such as Hackney Empire, T in the Park and at the UK’s most infamous festival, Glastonbury. But now Anne-Marie is embarking on a four-night solo tour starting at Manchester’s Deaf Institute next Thursday 28th January, showcasing what she has to offer as an artist in her own right.
Her live show is likely to include performances of her hit singles with Rudimental, which undoubtedly helped her get to where she is now. Her latest singles are sure to go down well with the crowd and a preview of new material is not to be dismissed. One thing we do know is that anyone heading to her tour is sure to be treated to an energetic set by one of the UK’s most highly anticipated artists for 2016.
