Gin Annie are a hard rock band based in The Black Country.
Formed in 2013, by Cousins David Foster (Lead Vocals) and Byron Garbett (Lead Guitar) with Andy Wiliams (Bass), Toni Longhi (Guitar) and James Woodcock (Drums), Gin Annie quickly established themselves on the local rock scene with energetic performances of hard hitting versions of classic rock anthems.
Due to demand, Gin Annie has played, on average, 50 – 60 shows per year since formation. An ever growing fan base of loyal “Ginners” allowed the band to attract headline shows at higher capacity venues such as Bilston’s Robin 2 (700) and Stourbridge’s The River Rooms (350) as well as supporting some extremely popular, world touring tribute acts like Back ‘n’ Black, Limehouse Lizzy and Bon Giovi International.
In early 2016, James left the band and Gin Annie was brought to the attention of drummer Jack Ryland-Smith whose previous band, The Black Cats, had recently disbanded. Jack was an instant hit with Gin Annie and its fan base and helped further develop Gin Annie’s sound and performance.
David and Byron then took their affinity for hard rock and started to write original material to give the Gin Annie audience something fresh that still had roots in the genre that its fans craved for week in and week out… Classic Rock: Music that was hard hitting, catchy and complicated in its simplicity.
In August 2016 the band started to work with local legendary studio, Sanctuary, and recorded the first batch of new original material.
The reception for this original material was overwhelming, with over 200 people turning up just to watch the first showing of the band’s music video, Damage Is Done. Within 7 days, the video had been viewed 35,000 times on Facebook alone – subsequent local shows are now even busier than before and some smaller venues are experiencing difficulty in coping with capacity.
In light of how its music has been received, Gin Annie signed a management deal with Sanctuary Music Ltd and are now under the guidance of the respected and experienced Pete Newton.
Gin Annie are currently on tour with Graham Bonnet Band and Doomsday Outlaw throughout the UK in August 2018 and are due to perform at Planet Rockstock in Dec.
