Annie Burbank resides in the Blue Mountains and is a classically trained pianist.

From an early age Annie has honed her own eclectic style of playing, with influences from the classics, great jazz pianists, and ambient styles.

With a worldly experience, complemented with tertiary study in music, Annie continues to share her experiences through her musical education studio and has maintained regular gigs at iconic local venues, such as the Hydro Majestic.

“I feel very privileged to be one of the people who have that tool (music) and that ability to do evoke emotion through music,” Annie said.

“There are very few things that will do that, music is one of the only things. The thing I love about music is its ability to change your emotional state.”

Despite her humble nature, Annie still has grand ambitions to develop her craft, write more original music and bring the power of music to her listeners. Being a musician has enabled Annie to learn and develop personally and professionally and she encourages anyone to push themselves to always improve.

“Building your skills is really important. As a musician, practice is the most important thing you can do and listen to lots of different musicians. You pull in your influences the more you listen,” Annie said.
