Annie Hart is a New York City-based composer, songwriter, and performer. She made her name with David Lynch favorites and Twin Peaks alums, synth trio Au Revoir Simone, and has since branched into a swift-moving solo career.
After the critically-acclaimed release of her first solo album, Impossible Accomplice, Hart embarked on several world tours and opened for the likes of Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, Torres, Porches, Girl Ray, and more. The minimal album explored the fringes of new wave, pop, and drone-core, and has been called “sumptuous synth-pop’ by Vogue.
Her reputation developed from the record as a unique master of composition on analog synthesizers and led her to compose the score for two feature films coming to wide release in 2020: Olympic Dreams, starring Nick Kroll and Alexi Pappas, and Banana Split, featuring Dylan Sprouse, Hannah Marks, and Liana Liberto.
Annie continues to break boundaries by composing music for patient listeners in her own distinctive self-taught style. Her new album, A Softer Offering, explores deep emotional content with a paradoxically lush spareness in sound that warmly welcomes each listener.
