Anabel (lee)

Anabel (lee)

Rich Mix will continue on its World Music programme with Annabel (lee) performing her sultry soul jazz fusion inspired by Edgar Allan Poe in the Rich Mix bar.

Annabel and Richard met via opposite sides of the globe; she, a New York-based, self-proclaimed lost creative soul, was searching for a way out of the madness of monotony, singing jazz and cabaret standards by the numbers; he, a London-based Yorkshireman, was a highly respected though discontented dance music arranger/producer who knew it was only a matter of time when he would chance upon the river of uncharted waters.

The power of peace. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s renowned poem of untimely death, Annabel (lee) muses on the refrain ‘in a kingdom by the sea…’ as she whispers from beneath the currents, ‘I shall never leave you’. The duo project, from Annabel (lee) and Richard E, invokes the haunting classicism of Claude Debussy and Erik Satie, intermingled with the quiet folklore of Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, drenched with the classic jazz of Miles Davis and Billie Holiday.

Finding one’s true voice can take what feels like centuries, although well worth the wait. Is it more appropriate’ for jazz, classical, folk, or some mysterious type of cabaret? The answer lies perhaps somewhere in the midst. From the layers of the symphonic to the intimacies of the acoustic, Annabel (lee) suffuses all with melancholy magic.
