Annabelle Marie Bertucci
Hellooo Everyone! I am a 22-year-old singer/songwriter known for my catchy, groove-oriented sound, branded "California Soul". I grew up in Redondo Beach, Calif., but her family and musical roots run deep in New Orleans Jazz and R&B. At just 14 years old, I formed a band and began playing gigs and cultivating my songwriting skills, being inspired by greats like Bonnie Raitt, Sara Bareilles, Carole King and Michael Buble'. I successfully graduated from the LA College of Music, with degrees in Vocal Performance and Songwriting.
Along with being an expressive and powerful vocalist, I love to play keys, guitar and ukulele, and I'm always pushing my musical boundaries. I see myself touring worldwide and writing hit songs for myself and other artists.
Until then, the hustle is real, I offer private lessons in all levels of Songwriting, and beginner Piano and Vocals.
For myself, music and songwriting is more than a dream, it is a passion rooted deep in my soul and a power transcending through my every day. I believe my talents are a gift from God and it is my duty to share my small gift for the world to hear.
My goals for the near future is to have a full time band so we can tour, record, and write music together. I currently have amazingly talented friends whom play and record with me when we are all able and free. Nonetheless, no one can hold me back and my creativity is bursting at the seams.
I am performing everywhere and anywhere, paid gigs are always ideal and welcomed. In performing all over, I hope to develop a large fan base that will support me, especially if I never obtain a record deal; and I already see my circle growing. my larger goal in the future is to make a name for myself in the Big Band realm, by writing in styles of Jazz and R&B, plus writing thoughtful lyrics and powerhouse melodies.
Music is my passion, being able to sing and perform is a lifetime goal.
My Favorite Artists are Paul McCartney, John Mayer, Harry Connick Jr., Gavin Degraw, Eric Clapton, Birdy, and Mat Kearney.
My Favorite Christian Artists/Bands are Switchfoot, Phil Wickham, Matt Maher, Tenth Avenue North, and Urban Rescue.
My Inspiration from my songs have come from my Childhood Home, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean, failed Romances, my wonderful Companion<3, my Family, Suicidal Thoughts, my favorite camp Forest Home, HOPE when life seems to be the end, and Dark versus the Light.
