Annett Louisan is the stage name of Annett Page, a German pop musician with cabaret flair and the whimsical aesthetic of female-fronted groups like Sixpence None the Richer and the Cardigans.
Her debut album, 2004's Bohème, peaked on the German charts at number three and yielded a wistful jangle pop single called "Das Spiel." Louisan released another album the following year, Unausgesprochen, which was accompanied by a couple more singles, "Das Gefuhl" and "Das Grosse Erwachen (...Und Jetzt...)." The album won several awards for Louisan, including an ECHO for Best Female Artist of the Year and a Goldene Stimmgabel for Best Female Solo Artist. Two years past before Louisan released her third album, Das Optimale Leben. Featuring the single "Das Alles Wär Nie Passiert", the album peaked at number two in the German charts, as did both 2008's Teilzeithippie and 2011's In Meiner Mitte, meaning Annett Louisan had achieved top three positions for all of her first five albums in her homeland. ~ Margaret Reges & Daniel Clancy, Rovi
