Annette Buckley is one of the finest vocalists/songwriters of her generation.

Originally it was her much-enthused performances at the Lobby Bar, Cork that increased her once quietly murmuring fan base into a cascade of local public recognition. To witness Annette Buckley on stage is an experience nothing short of religiously spiritual. A magnificent voice carries an endless flow of mystical lyrics. Each syllable, one feels, is born of that rare place where the eye of innocence stares into the darker outposts of humanity, and returns more deeply wise.

Since then, many have witnessed her inspired performances throughout Britain and Ireland. Annette has also opened for Juliet Turner in her sell out date at the Cork Opera House and the USA based Ryan Adams at the Kilkenny Rhythm'n'Roots Festival in May 2001.

More recently she has added Maria McKee, Nina Hynes, Eleanor McEvoy, Neil Halstead, Amy Rigby and the legendary Soft Boys to this number, as well as playing support in several venues to Phonograph on their Summer 2003 tour. In March this year, Annette took part in the Forward The Revolution tour in The Village, Dublin and also played as part of the 2003 Cork Mid-Summer Festival in the Everyman Palace Theatre.

In addition, Annette has received further coverage on national TV and radio, performing on TG4's Pop TV, and receiving airplay on 2FM's Jay Aherne show.

In November 2001 Annette signed a publishing contract with Toby Darling Ltd in England. Toby represents many artists worldwide including Irish band the Frames. Untitled, Annette's 6 track EP, was launched in July 2001. It is an eclectic collection of both polished and bare songs. She is currently working on her d├ębut album.

It is her voice which sets Annette Buckley apart from her peers, giving her that vital edge on all those who fail that ever burgeoning category of singer/songwriter. "One cannot but be impressed by Buckley's powerful range." Michael Carr of 96FM/Inside Cork authoratively states.
