Annie DiRusso

Annie DiRusso is a Nashville based indie-rock artist born in NYC, who wears the influence of both of these cities on her sleeve. She blends buzzing garage rock guitars and high-energy performances with a pop-infused flair. The magic she creates in her hooks and melodies is apparent in her previously released singles and debut EP, quickly turning casual listeners into hardcore fans. Followers waited patiently to see Annie’s raucous live show over the pandemic months, and were given the opportunity via her multiple support slots (HAIM, Beabadoobee, Samia) and two headline tours, where she sold out multiple dates. Annie is currently working on her first ever full length project, so watch out for new music from Annie in 2024.
