At Home With Musician Annie Hart of Au Revoir Simone

Written by Erin Feher

Today we are hanging out with one of our musical heroines: Annie Hart is a founding member of the pioneering synth-pop trio Au Revoir Simone. She is also a mama to two creative, music-loving kids (8 and 4 years old) who are living their best lives in Queens, NY. Annie launched her solo career, complete with a world tour, in 2017, and doesn’t gloss over the fact that being a mom and a professional, touring musician comes with its share of challenges. But it also lets her be exactly the kind of woman she wants to be: creative, driven, and devoid of a soul-sucking day job. We spent the day with Annie and her sweet son and daughter, sat in on a family jam session, and got to know a little about what the juggle looks like when you’re recording an album, making guest appearances on Twin Peaks, and raising two little humans at the same time. Her brand new album, A Softer Offering, comes out December 13th, and she invites all you NYC folks to come celebrate with her that night at Union Pool in Williamsburg, where she will be playing a live set. In the meantime, take a tour of her classic New York City home, and get to know a little more about this musical mama by clicking through the full tour below.

    Another nice series of a mom barefoot at home. My favorites are picture #2 (her pedicure is cute!), #12 (her wrinkly bare sole is gorgeous!), and pictures #19 and #20 (Annie playing piano in her lovely bare feet makes for 2 beautiful pictures).
