Annielle is a Swedish artist, guitar player and songwriter. Annie Kullén, i.e. Annielle's real name, was born into a family of musicians in the small town Malmbäck in Småland county. When Annielle was ten years she started playing classical guitar and also to make her own songs. She lives in Jönköping, Sweden where she develops her own unique music. Annielle describes her music as acoustic pop with a touch of folk and country. Annielles signature sound is her warm soothing voice in combination with finger picking acoustic guitars. She came to national attention through her hit single ”Summer Love”. Her songs often depict everyday life situations, anything in between the topics of homelessness, existence and love.
“The Dreamers” is an addictive new pop tune layered with contagious acoustic melodies and Annielle’s well known smooth vocals. With undertones of folk and country, “The Dreamers” is a timeless hit. Annielle’s tone is infectious and flawless as she explodes into a powerful launch of finely-calibrated highs and lows. “The Dreamers” is an inspiring new single about just what the title insists. It’s about following your dreams, whatever that may be. It’s empowering and uplifting and relatable for people from all walks of life. There’s a sight rasp in Annielle’s voice that I find so charming and authentically individual. I love the confident sense of self that comes blaring through the speaker and she delivers every word with ease. We can’t wait to hear more from this powerhouse singer/songwriter!

Artists that inspired my songwriting and still inspires me.
