Annie Royer is a native of Paris, France. She settled in Boston, Massachusetts, for ten years, and now is a resident of Palm Beach, Florida. She has been captivating audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with her musical and dramatic talents and her Gallic charm.
Her repertoire ranges from her specialty – soulful and haunting renditions of cabaret songs à la Edith Piaf - to other popular French tunes (Chevalier, Montant, Trenet, Mistinguette, Becaud, Aznavour), and lively performances of Broadway and Jazz favorites. Invariably, listeners of all ages respond with enthusiasm to her invitation for “request songs” in French and English.
Royer's charismatic style is suited to and engages both, small and large audiences. She is a sought-after entertainer at Jazz Clubs, Concert Stages, Festivals, Private Parties and Corporate Functions.
Annie is performing all over the United States as well as in many other countries. Her band “Les Garçons Musette," all very talented and well-known musicians, backs her.
