Nashville recording artist Annelle Staal is about to release her new EP, “Heart on my Sleeve.”
“I am releasing a single on March 21, called ‘Record on Replay,’” says Staal. “People can listen on it on all digital platforms — including iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music and more. We are trying to get as many plays as possible, to get Spotfy or Pandora’s attention and make it on a curated playlist.”
The singer-songwriter grew up in Southern Pines, and signed with Nashville artist management company Redline Entertainment in 2016 after winning the 2015 Dogwood Festival Solo-Artist competition.
She released her debut pop project, “MARS,” in 2017.
The songwriter has composed, musically and lyrically, over 200 original songs, performed over 300 live shows, and raised over $4,000 through benefit concerts.
Now an independent touring artist, Staal will be releasing her first acoustic musical project this March on all digital platforms.
“I play regularly at local venues, such as the Wine Cellar and Tasting Room, the Bell Tree, and the Jefferson Inn,” says Staal, who will also be participating in Raise the Roof at the Sunrise Theater the evening of Saturday, March 28.
She will be back in town to perform at First Friday, May 1, in downtown Southern Pines.
Staal has a passion for the youth in her communities, and has led multiple workshops addressing music business and composition for elementary and middle school kids. With a passion for mental wellness and counseling programs, she has partnered with Blue Ridge Hope, and holds monthly concerts to raise money and awareness about mental illness.
She is currently touring North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Michigan and Tennessee.
