Biography

“I was raised in a musical family and I’ve been singing since childhood. My mom also forced me to play the oboe for 8 years! I toured constantly with my mom and her band in my childhood, sometimes I even sang on stage with them.” - Anette, from her website.

After she turned 13, she started competing in several talent shows. She joined her first real band when she was just 17, in which they performed covers. After that band, Anette joined Alyson Avenue, first just as a studio singer, then later as their leading lady. They released two albums together.
