Becker cloaking audiences in sultry soundscapes

It’s hard to believe Annie Becker is from the West Coast and not from the basement of a late-'30s jazz club.

It’s hard to believe Annie Becker is from the West Coast and not from the basement of a late-’30s jazz club.

Becker has been cloaking her audiences in a Gyp-sea of sultry soundscapes across Canada, New York, and Thailand for the past five years.

In 2011 Annie Released her first album, All About the Beez Neez, and in 2013 was awarded Vancouver Island Vocalist of the Year.

With this new EP, Back to the City, Annie takes us out of the city and back to that Vaudeville cabaret. She laces Latin grooves with a taste of rockabilly and jazz, stripped down to showcase the rawness of Becker’s vocals.

This is music you can play loud in your car.

On this EP album launch, Becker will perform with drummer Corijn de Roo, guitarist James Lambert and Bocephus King’s upright bassist Wynston Minckler.

“I’m eager to get out from behind my guitar and just sing for some of the tunes,” says Becker, “We’re excited to reproduce a similar sound to the record. Live.”

Opening for Annie is Brodie Dawson. Annie and Brodie have played many shows together and are amped to share the Waverley Hotel stage once again.

Doors open Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8. Tickets are available at Bop City, the Waverley or by phoning 250-336-8322.
