San Francisco-based Annie Lin is known for her low, lustrous voice and her wry lyrics, which have drawn comparisons to Aimee Mann and Leslie Feist. An experienced performer, Annie has released three albums and toured nationwide both solo and with her band, appearing with artists such as Vienna Teng, Jen Wood and Sarah Harmer.
“Annie Lin lets her well-crafted songs do the talking for her.
The diminutive singer packs a melancholy and delightfully snarky edge
in her newer offhand tales of relationship snarls.” -Houston Press
Critics from the Houston Press, San Jose Weekly, Splendidezine, Giant Robot Magazine, and Hyphen Magazine have praised the album Truck Was Struck (Ariadne Records), which has been featured on NPR. Annie’s music has also received attention and recognition from publications including Village Voice, Boston Phoenix, and Seattle Press. For her contributions to music, Annie received an award of distinction from the National Association of Taiwanese Women in 2005.
Annie launched her career as a student at Rice University, balancing shows and tours with classes. She has the unusual distinction of being one of a handful of touring musicians who is also a practicing attorney. A former New Yorker, Annie now resides in San Francisco.
