Following on the heels of her debut album Loose Ends, Montreal-based singer & songwriter Annabel Gutherz is capping off the year with the release of ‘Loose Ends Sessions,’ featuring live renditions of “Checkmate,” “Barcelona,” and “Bloomer.” All 3 tracks are being released with accompanying in-studio videos.
Annabel recorded the ‘Loose Ends Sessions’ at Studio Piccolo in Montreal, Quebec with Dominique Messier (drums) and Kaven Girouard (guitar), two of Céline Dion’s long-time band members. Explaining why she chose these three particular songs from the album, Annabel says, “Each song pulls from a unique sonic palette and topically explores a different facet of my life’s expanding mosaic of stories, which is why I thought they would be especially fun to perform.”
Annabel Gutherz made her debut in 2018 with the release of “Legends,” a philanthropic song whose proceeds are donated to education-based charities. After spending the past few years honing her musical talents at Berklee College of Music, the young singer-songwriter has come into her own as a promising artist to watch.
Her debut album, Loose Ends, was released in October 2021. The album was received favorably, with tastemakers like Melodic Magazine praising the record as “a pure, intimate coming-of-age album that does well to introduce us to who Annabel is as a person and as an artist.” Over the course of the 11 tracks, Annabel cathartically explores life’s unfinished moments with a diaristic touch. Her ardent and perspective storytelling is on full display as she takes listeners on a journey as she writes from the heart with raw honesty and emotional conviction.
