My name is Annabelle Buttery. I am a Limerick based singer-songwriter. Currently I’m completing my co-op placement with Rootstrings Management as part of my Bachelors in Performing Arts in The University of Limerick.
As a musician I get a lot of my inspiration from Jazz artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday as well as more mainstream artists like Lennon Stella and Orla Gartland. I started singing as a child but didn’t take it seriously until I began secondary school and had an amazing music teacher who saw potential in me and made me see the potential in myself. I have been part of many choirs and taken part in many competitions mainly to gain experience performing and those experiences gave me the confidence to really take my own music seriously. I use Instagram (@annabelleb_music) as my main platform for my music at the moment but hope to start releasing things to streaming platforms in the near future.
I am currently working on my debut single ‘Hindsight’. This song is the definition of a work in progress. I originally wrote the song at sixteen after a getting out of a toxic relationship. At the time I wrote the existing verses and a different chorus. However, at twenty that chorus had just a little too much teen angst for me. I still loved the verses and felt quite attached to them so I decided to replace the chorus and add a bridge that were what I would say to my sixteen-year-old self if I could go back in time.
I hope to properly record/produce this song eventually but for now I have this baritone ukulele version that I hope you enjoy.
