Hailing from the industrial heartland of England, the birthplace of many of rocks biggest hitters, (Black Sabbath, Slade, Judas Priest, ELO, Duran Duran) Gin Annie formed around the nucleus of Black Country cousins David Foster (Vocals) and Byron “Beej” Garbett (Guitars). After quickly attracting attention on the local club scene for their high energy performances the band recruited Brian Green (Guitars), Phil “Hammer” Burrows (Bass) and Lewis Turner (Drums) to complete the line up.
The band started recording their debut album 100% Proof, in the spring of 2018 at SLL Studios and it was released on Off Yer Rocka Recordings in January 2019. On release 100% Proof entered the TOP 10 of both the i-Tunes and the Amazon Rock Charts.
Gin Annie’s music and style has been described as “Swagger and attitude of a band fresh off the Sunset Strip in the late 80s, with a modern edge that is bound to appeal to rockers of all ages” The band embarked on a successful 14 date Headline UK tour followed by tour dates supporting Deadland Ritual, Last In Line, Geoff Tate and Ugly Kid Joe and festivals such as Ramblin’ Man, HRH Ibiza, HRH 13, Rock & Blues Custom Show, Breaking Bands and Winters End.
Despite a busy schedule, Gin Annie have released three more singles, all of which gained air- play on Planet Rock Radio. The 2nd Single “Dying To Live Again” earned the band it’s BBC Radio 2 debut on the Johnnie Walker Rock Show. All three singles also peaked at number two in the Amazon Rock Charts, with Dying To Live Again and Save Me remaining in the top 50 for over a month.
