Annette Hanley

Like Kirsty, Annette has been a singer, musician and song writer for decades. She has worked all over Scotland as a solo artist and in various bands. Annette and Kirsty’s careers ran parallel for 2 decades although the girls didn’t meet until 2010 when she became a rehearsal musician. Now she is the Asst. MD, lead guitarist, band leader and a valuable member of the team.

Along with Kirsty, they both arrange all the songs used for Sing in The City and on occasion write together.

Annette has a passion for collecting guitars and effects pedals. She works the choirs and the band extremely hard and has a really good eye for detail.

What Annette Says...

"We have to work extremely hard at Sing in the City but it’s totally worth it. The venues get bigger, the audiences get louder, performances get slicker and the opportunities are numerous. We have an ambitious team, Kirsty enthuses everyone brilliantly and the support everyone gives each other is amazing."

"Like Kirsty, I love working on original material. It’s amazing to hear a song you wrote performed by 60 singers to a huge audience and watching that same audience applaud it in the same way they just cheered a popular cover song."
