Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Woman Transcending (compilation, 2007)
Annie Haslam's site
Mary Fahl, Sally Oldfield (similar voice)
Annie Haslam has a very beautiful, clear, and expressive soprano voice. She has a dramatic and emotional delivery. She was with the English band Renaissance, which played classical-influenced prog rock a la Yes or Emerson, Lake and Palmer. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Annie Haslam—vocals, backing vocals
Jon Camp—bass, bass pedals, guitar, acoustic guitar, backing vocals
It's arguably (in my opinion) the best of her solo efforts. (email@example.com)
Annie Haslam—vocals,backing vocals
Peter Bliss—guitar, programming, backing vocals
This is well worth getting. Very "produced" which tends to obscure the singing a little at times, and the songs vary in strength, but a good showcase for Annie's voice. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended for fans
Guest artists include:
John Arbo—bass, string bass, backing vocals
This is billed as "Annie Haslam's Renaissance" it has more to offer lovers of Annie's voice than it does to Renaissance fans in general. The songs are pretty ordinary, and the musicians not up to much (in my opinion) but it is distinctively Annie singing. ((email@example.com))
Annie covered Yes's "Turn of the century" on the Tales From Yesterday tribute album.
