Even as a child, Anne-Marie Nicholson sang in London’s fashionable West End. But instead of consistently pursuing this path, she pursued another passion very successfully: Shotokan, a particularly disciplined form of karate and bacame in 2002 and 2007 World Champion. In retrospect, she said she learned the tools and discipline needed to succeed in the pop business.
Only at the age of 24 did she return to music and start her career in 2015 with moderate success with the Digital-EP Karate. Then Anne-Marie first tried it as a singer in different contexts. She acted as a guest vocalist on Magnetic Man, Gorgon City and Raized by Wolves albums, drawing her attention to the British drum’n’bass band Rudimental. On four songs of the album We The Generation you can hear her voice, including on the single Rumour Mill, which gave her the first entry into the UK Top 100. Since then, Anne-Marie is a regular not only in the British charts. She sang on singles by Wretch 32, Illy, Nick Jonas, and many more, but most of all, she’s the gorgeous voice on Clean Bandit’s rip-off Rockabye.
Only obvious that in all these successes, her own publications became successful, too. In 2015, she succeeded in entering the English and Australian charts with Do It Right. In 2016, Alarm was the first worldwide hit and she won the first three own platinum and gold records with it. At least since the 2017 released song Ciao Adios Anne-Marie is a term for most of the radio listeners. And so it was not only the album Speak Your Mind, but also the coupled out singles 2002 and Friends in cooperation with Marshmello, that turned into worldwide chart-toppers.
