I came to this concert with no knowledge of Annabelle Chvostek at all. I didn’t even know which country she was from! By the time she left the stage, I was hooked and wanted to hear much more of her.
Annabelle is a singer-songwriter from Canada and a former member of the Wailin Jennys.
By the time her first song was finished, I thought wow this lady can sing! She has a powerful voice that fits in well with her bluesy jazz style of music.
Singing songs such as ‘Resilience’, ‘Heartland Quay’ and ‘Rise’ this audience soon warmed to Annabelle and gave her hearty applause which was thoroughly deserved. This was a very vibrant and passionate performance.
Annabelle is currently on a UK wide tour promoting her latest album ‘Rise’. This is a tremendous album although it does have a definite political statement to it. It is very powerful and emotive.
