Hi. I’m Annie Clements. If you’re reading this I’m guessing you saw me on stage with an artist whose show you hopefully enjoyed and maybe thought to yourself “What’s with that girl up there playing bass? Let’s have a poke around the internet and find out.” Or maybe you’re my mom. Who visits my website regularly. Hi mom.
Regardless of how you found me, THANK YOU for taking the time and I’m glad you’re here. I hope you will find this website to be a useful and deeper in-depth look at my body of work with some truly wonderful artists and a listing of the tour dates up ahead – the story of where I’ve been and where I’m going.
Speaking of where I’ve been, I’ll give you the short bio. I grew up in New Orleans, the daughter of a powerhouse attorney (my mom) and a brilliant blues guitar player (my dad) so I’m sort of this weird combination of responsibility and whimsy; controlled chaos or something like that. Dad started taking me out to play on gigs as soon as we both could get away with sneaking me into bars on Bourbon street (which in New Orleans, is like, age 13) and mom made sure I received an honest-to-goodness degree in my chosen profession of playing the bass from the Berklee College of Music.
Big ups to Bass Player Magazine for featuring me in their HOLIDAY ISSUE for December 2017! As a professional bassist, it don’t get no bigger than this so you can imagine that I am absolutely honored and thrilled! Thank you to Jon D’Auria for the wonderful interview and all the love for my band Hula Hi-Fi as well!read more
