Annabelle Chvostek
Annabelle ChvostekAnnabelle Chvostek is a fearless and innovative artist whose beguiling left-of-centre compositions straddle the divide between mainstream roots and acoustic indie-pop. "Awe-Inspiring..." Star Phoenix, Canada

When Annabelle Chvostek joined the Wailin' Jennys in 2004, the rest of the world found out what a grassroots network of Canadian roots fans had known for several years: that Chvostek is a formidable songwriter, a versatile multi-instrumentalist, and a fearless and innovative artist whose beguiling left-of-centre compositions straddle the divide between mainstream roots and acoustic indie pop.

Chvostek's songs were repeatedly singled out by critics as highlights of the Jennys' Juno-nominated CD, Firecracker. Her opening song "Devil's Paintbrush Road" was the #1 song at US folk radio in 2006. It remained at #3 in 2007. Her latest solo release “Resilience” is receiving similar accolades, nominated for Contemporary Album of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, and as a top Canadian album finishing #2 for January 2009 (Folkdj-l playlists).

The sound of the “Resilience” could best be described as "contemporary urban roots," a style in which acoustic instruments are front and centre, but in which strategically placed programmed beats and electro-acoustic elements wrap themselves gently and tastefully around the strings, at times building the sound to a subtle crescendo such as on the title track. In addition to Cockburn, guests include renowned alt.country artist Mary Gauthier on backing vocals, Ani DiFranco alumnus Julie Wolf on keyboard and accordion and multiple Juno nominee Michael Jerome Browne on assorted strings.
