New York City-based singer and songwriter Annalise Azadian has had music at the forefront of her life since her childhood.As she was growing up she taught herself to play the guitar, and after her grandmother’s passing, Annalise was inspired to start songwriting at age eleven. “It’s the only thing I’m meant to be doing,” says the now twenty-year-old Annalise.By age fourteen she was winning accolades at the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem and has since performed at local bars and venues such as The Bitter End, as well as auditioning and proceeding to be flown to Hollywood on hit TV show American Idol.After high school she was accepted into the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. It was here where she further refined her vocals, instrument talents, and songwriting styles.Now the young talent has performed in over eighty venues, festivals, and fundraisers, has been featured on FM radio, and amassed mentions in the press spotlighting her soulful, alternative style of genre-bending, boundary pushing music.
