Annette Gil`s music is influenced by the beats and moods of the 80's darker corners. She is introverted and mysterious, glamorous and playful. Her music is intriguing and she`s creating her very own alternative pop world. You might hear the echoes of artists such as Blondie, Siouxsie and the Banshees and David Bowie.
She is co-producing her music together with engineer and drummer Ole Tom Torjussen. Other musicians contributing in the studio and on stage are Fredrik Eilertsen (bass), Joachim Arnesen (guitar), Helge Hovland (guitar) and Ola Aanje (keyboards). All work is done at her own studio and label – House Of Distillery Records (HOD) – Oslo, Norway. Right now she is working on new songs and is planning to release the new single “Little Sister” in fall 2018.
