Annika Bennett was nine years old and living just north of New York City when she started playing guitar and wrote her first song, inspired by her obsession with the Beatles. By age 11, she was leading an all-girl rock band, and by the time she graduated high school she had written hundreds of songs and won multiple awards. After a brief stint at NYU, Annika moved to Nashville, penning songs with the likes of gnash, Jordy Searcy, Catie Turner, and more. Frequent collaborators include Omer Fedi, Gnash, Danny Silberstein, Jonah Shyand Lexi Jayde.
Along with pop cowriting, Annika found artistic growth for her own project in the Nashville DIY scene. Her artist project includes a collection of solo-written songs that fuse pop concision, country clarity, indie introspection, and a remarkably playful melodic instinct inspired by McCartney classic rock.
