ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Annie Medling is an independent R&B artist from Tasmania, Australia. With no formal vocal training, she never imagined a career in singing until a few years ago. Growing up in church, she would make up harmonies to her favourite gospel songs, but was always too shy to sing in front of people. It was encouragement from others, a few near death experiences & a passion for personal growth that would eventually lead her to sing much later in life.

While Annie was in high school, she travelled to South Africa and The Philippines to undertake volunteer community work. It was on these trips that she spent a lot of time dancing with the locals and fell in love with all things soulful. When Annie returned to Australia she began choreographing and, at age 17, founded Tasmania's first Hip Hop dance crew in her garage and began performing regularly at festivals and local events. She always dreamed of opening a dance studio, but having no formal Hip Hop dance or business training, thought this was something she would explore much later in life.

At age 20, whilst at University studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Arts majoring in Painting, Annie’s life changed forever. Her heart stopped while she was out for a jog. A passer-by found her on the side of the road, called the ambulance, and luckily she was revived. Eventually, after a year of similar episodes, she was fitted with a pacemaker and promised herself that if she made it past that year, she would stop being complacent and pursue her dreams with a greater passion.  So, at the age of 21, Annie opened Tasmania’s first Hip Hop dance studio which successfully grew to have 300 students attending weekly classes at its four locations, including one in Malaysia. 

At age 24, after much encouragement from her dance students, Annie began learning cover songs and uploaded a singing video to youtube. It was then that New York born rapper, Chase Baker, discovered her and began mentoring her from Melbourne, Australia. Taking his advice, she uploaded more videos, taught herself how to make beats, and began writing her own songs.  Although he had since moved home to New York, and had never met Annie, Chase set up a meeting for her in Melbourne. She appeared on a radio station, networked with some local rappers and recorded her first song. From that day, singing became her greatest passion in life.

With no urban music industry in Tasmania, Annie moved to Melbourne to explore the possibility of a singing career. She quickly became the lead singer of the band 'Annie Are You OK', performing R&B covers at weddings, bars, clubs, and corporate functions. She began developing her own vocal style and writing more original music whilst working as a makeup artist and selling original paintings to support her musical ambitions. Annie eventually formed an acoustic duo with Melbourne-based guitarist Gavin Zacher and scored a residency playing original music at a local bar. In late 2014, she began recording a string of original songs that would eventually become her debut EP ‘Elusive’. She chose to feature two of her greatest musical influences, Chase Baker & Gavin Zacher on the project, as a tribute to their belief in her when she didn’t believe in herself. 

With a catalogue of original songs, Annie moved back to Tasmania at the beginning of 2016 and began studying a Diploma in Music to gain a vocal teaching qualification. Shortly after returning, she unexpectedly underwent two more heart surgeries, which only motivated her to complete her EP. With ongoing major health issues, Annie has lived by the motto: “Never say ‘no’ to an opportunity to grow.”    

Annie currently runs a mentoring program for teenage girls and occasionally works as a motivational speaker. She plans to release more music throughout 2016, start creating music videos, and taking on private vocal students. In 2017, she hopes to travel to the USA & Canada to pursue a record deal. Annie hopes to be able to continue her career as an artist whilst making a positive impact on the world and encouraging others to overcome obstacles and pursue their dreams.
