Arriving on the heels of her debut album Loose Ends, Montreal-based singer & songwriter Annabel Gutherz is capping off the year with the release of Loose Ends Sessions. The album features live renditions of “Checkmate,” “Barcelona,” and “Bloomer.” All 3 tracks are being released with accompanying in-studio videos.
Annabel is Working With Big Names
Annabel recorded the Loose Ends Sessions at Studio Piccolo in Montreal, Quebec. Featured on the recording are Canadian master musicians Dominique Messier (drums) and Kaven Girouard (guitar). These incredible musicians are two of Céline Dion’s long-time band members.
Annabel explained why she chose these three particular songs from the album. “Each song pulls from a unique sonic palette; and topically explores a different facet of my life’s expanding mosaic of stories. That is why I thought they would be especially fun to perform.”
In an Instagram post, she described how excited she was. “I had the BEST time performing songs from Loose Ends live in the studio with legends Dominique Messier and Kaven Girouard! Being in the studio after almost two years felt like coming home. Performing with such esteemed musicians was an absolute dream.”
She Just Released Her Debut Album
Annabel Gutherz made her debut in 2018 with the release of “Legends,” which donated its proceeds to education-based charities. This artist is not one to let go of the wheel on her career’s direction. Gutherz spent the past few years honing her musical talents at Berklee College of Music. This young singer-songwriter has come into her own as a promising artist to watch.
Her debut album, Loose Ends, was just released in October 2021. Tastemakers like Melodic Magazine praised the record as “a pure, intimate coming-of-age album that does well to introduce us to who Annabel is as a person and as an artist.” Over the course of the 11 tracks, Annabel cathartically explores life’s unfinished moments with a diaristic touch. Her ardent and perspective storytelling is on full display as she takes listeners on a journey. She writes from the heart with raw honesty and emotional conviction.
