Anneda is fronted by Charlene Birkbeck on guitar, lead vocals and piano, with Lucas McKinnon on drums/percussion, vocals and occasionally guitar.
A celestial duo from Victoria, B.C. whose musical milleu spans the early sounds of folk, jazz, and blues, all the way out to intergalactic atmospheres and supernova rock and roll. We perform both covers and originals and pride ourselves on being able to swoon both the smallest rooms and the rowdiest crowds.
2016 was a great year: a showcase at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, recording and releasing a new full-length album, and a month long tour across Western Canada.
2017 has consisted of a trip to Australia, a tour across Canada, a 2 month stint performing with PIGS: Canada's most authentic Pink Floyd tribute act, recording a new album with Dale Harrison(former drummer for the Headstones) for Compassion Machine, and playing weekly at the Shangri La Hotel downtown Toronto, along with various other gigs at bars and casinos in the greater Toronto area.
What's in store for 2018:
We have some new players involved and are now booking as a duo, trio or full quartet. A list of our ever growing song list is available here.
