Her songs have been played on BBC Radio 2 and BBC6 Music and have frequently appeared on the Caffe Nero playlist. Annie has played at Festivals & venues throughout the UK, such as the Green Man Festival, Secret Garden Party and Cambridge Folk Festival sharing the stage with the likes of Emily Barker, Simone Felice, Kirsty McGee, Lucy Wainwright Roche & Fossil Collective.

In November 2018, Cambridge based singer-songwriter Luke James Williams released his debut EP Drove. The first single ‘Rabbit Hole’ has received airplay on BBC6 Music, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing whilst other cuts from the EP have been featured and played by Folk Radio UK and Hype Machine. Second single ‘Still In Bed’ has received huge support from BBC6 Music DJ Tom Robinson who recently chose it as his 6Music Recommends track of 2019 so far which then saw it played by Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq. Luke has received rave reviews for his engaging live performances and has supported artists such as Stu Larsen, The Little Unsaid and Megson. Broadly categorised as alt.folk and drawing influences from the likes of Sufjan Stevens and PJ Harvey, Williams paints pictures with words and sings them in his own distinctly British voice.
