King Anne is a Haitian singer-songwriter that fuses indie pop and folk genres. Her musical influence is attributed to growing up with eclectic sounds from classical music and jazz, to oldies and hip hop. She writes lyrics to represent the underrepresented, to express feelings she might not otherwise say and to make sense of scenarios around her. Music has always been her escape and thus she works to create songs that listeners can get lost in themselves. More than anything, she wants people to feel less alone with her music.
