Concerts on the Pier is a quintessential Duluth summer experience. Local, Minnesota musicians play on the end of Glensheen’s 100-ft pier that juts out into Lake Superior. Concert goers pack the shoreline and arrive to watch the show via every watercraft vehicle imaginable.
Annie Mack is a soulful singer and unflinching songwriter who writes from the gut and demands your attention.
Raised in North Minneapolis and currently living in Rochester, MN, Annie Mack grew up in the 80s, influenced by the rich Twin Cities music scene. “I
think it was just by environment,” she says. “Music was such a big part of my youth–just the soundtrack really. I think about The Gap Band, of course, Prince, all the funk and the soul.”
Inspired by her mother’s love of music, she started singing, performing at local joints. “After my mother passed away, the thing that really stood out to me was to do something that you like before you leave this life.” Although never intending it to be a career, it quickly became one.
In 2013, Mack released her debut album Baptized in the Blues, which put her on the blues map and established her as a powerhouse performer and singer. After keeping up a rigorous touring schedule, she took time off to record her 2017 EP Tell It Like It Is–a more personal collection of songs about recovery and healing that showcased her serious songwriting chops. Now, with the release of her new recording Testify (2021) she solidifies her position as a top-tier singer, songwriter and producer who has found her musical home, performing her own unique blend of blues, country, rock and soul. The release finds her confident and comfortable, owning her place as a rising star in the roots music scene.
