Singer/songwriter Annabel Lamb was born in Surrey, England. When Annabel was five years old, her father lifted her up and sat her on the refrigerator in their kitchen. He said, "I'm going to play you some music and I want you to close your eyes and listen to it. Then, when it's finished, I want you to tell me what the music made you think about." He went into the other room and put a record on.

Annabel continues, "Dad turned the volume up really loud and left the door between the two rooms open so that the music flowed through to where I was sitting. It was beautiful music, music that I had never heard before, and I loved it. As I sat there listening, images began to appear behind my closed eyelids, rushing, rippling water, swirling, drifting tide, the sea, the ocean! (I had seen the ocean before and was already in love with it). The music stopped and I opened my eyes after a few moments, amazed and dazzled by what I had seen.

My father smiled at me." "Well?" he asked. I smiled back at him, "the sea Dad, it made me see the sea!". He grabbed me then and danced me round and round the room in his arms. "Good girl", he kept saying, "Good girl!" The piece of music was Debussy's "La Mer". Annabel has never forgotten that first realisation of the power of music. "I think I was hooked from that moment onwards."

Her abiding love for music in general and her skill as a lyricist have allowed her to be diverse at times and to explore different areas, her earlier albums showing jazz and ethnic influences in a contemporary setting. Having been compared with many singers, (Annie Lennox and Chrissie Hynde to name two), she has always taken these comparisons as compliments whilst never wishing to be pigeonholed.

She has made albums for A&M Records, BMG/RCA, Polygram and, most recently, BMG label Red Rooster in Germany, where she recorded the album "Flow".

In 1996 she met Rick Goldstein of "Way Out West Records" and between them they decided to release "Flow" in the UK. During the writing and recording of "Flow", Annabel began a close association with cowriter and producer Dave Dix (producer of "Black", Alison Moyet and Melanie Garside), and under his influence and guidance, "Flow" was produced. As well as her recording and touring career, Annabel has co-written songs with many other artists and songwriters, notably the song "Amazed Are We" for Maxi Priest.

She also writes short stories and is currently working on her first novel. Amongst her influences, she lists James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, the Canadian singer/songwriter Jane Siberry, Fairport Convention, Paul Brady and a host of others. "Flow" wins over the listener almost immediately with it's emotional depth, simple song structures, strong melody, power and joie-de-vivre. "I am a new-age country artist", she laughs. "To me, true success as an artist comes from writing something which touches people and with which they can identify. If someone offered me a million pounds I wouldn't say no, but if I had to give up my definition of success to have it, then the only benefit would be that I could be miserable in comfort!"
