“One of the most refreshing female acts to come down the pike in a long while. Deep and provocative songs.” —Maverick Magazine“
Keating is building the reputation her talent deserves." —The Telegraph
“Annie Keating is the epitome of what it means to be a truly successful singer/songwriter” —American Songwriter
Lucinda Williams. John Prine. Bob Dylan. Allison Krauss. Willie Nelson. Johnny Cash. Bonnie Raitt. Emmylou Harris. Patty Griffin. This is a short list of the musicians Annie Keating has been compared to over the last twenty years. Keating writes and sings like a woman who knows deep down that heartache is the price of hope, and she can make us believe –in that way that only the best artists can –that all of it is worth the cost. Talent spotted by BBC Radio's Bob Harris, she has performed at leading festivals -Take Root(Netherlands), Glasgow Americana Festival, Maverick (UK), Buscadero (Italy) NXNE and The Brooklyn Americana Fest. Sharing the bill with the likes of John Hiatt and Bon Iver, Keating has toured internationally in a dozen countries and in 2021 released a fifteen song tour de force -her 10th album “Bristol County Tides" -that shows this veteran artist at the peak of her powers.
