Anne-Marie Helder releases live EP

Anne-Marie Helder has done a Beyoncé and released a new record out of the blue with no prior announcement. Called simply “Solo Live”, it’s a five track EP of live recordings of her solo material.

In the mid-2000s, between the disollution of the first incarnation of Karnataka and the start of Panic Room, Anne-Marie toured extensivly as an acoustic solo act, playing 200 gigs in one year at one point. As first Panic Room and then Luna Rossa became more established, the solo side of Anne-Marie’s music has taken less prominence, though she did support Steve Hackett in some major venues in 2013.

.As Anne-Marie explains on her Facebook page, these recordings for this EP date from 2009 when she was the tour support for Ultravox. They were made by the sound engineer at Portsmouth Guildhall, and had been thought lost. But they’ve turned up, and have been professionally mixed and mastered by Panic Room’s and Luna Rossa’s producer Tim Hamill.

The EP can be streamed or purchased as a download from Anne-Marie’s Bandcamp page.

    Nice surprise. Had to cancel the purchase, though. It seems to want a phone number and wont accept my landline number. Seems to only accept 10 digits – and then reformats it to (aaa) bbb-cccc . Which makes no sense to me, even for mobile numbers …. I will try again later.

    Now it works – just type the number in without changing the selection from “mobile” …. Who writes this software … :-)

    We have an extraordinary collision here. You are doing UX testing for Bandcamp in connection with Anne-Marie’s live EP, while I’m working on software testing involving addresses in Apocalypstick Avenue, Elektra City.
