Annie garnered international attention in 2010 when she sang and co-wrote the songs accompanying a multi-spot TV advertising campaign to launch the Amazon Kindle, in which she also starred. In 2013, Annie signed a songwriting publishing deal with Razor & Tie Music Publishing. She has released three EP’s and a full-length album with her husband Marcus Ashley as the indie-pop duo, Little & Ashley. Their music has been licensed to major TV shows, film trailers, and advertising campaigns including "Teen Wolf", The English Teacher starring Julianne Moore, and advertising campaigns for Banana Republic, Leon's, and Balanced Body.
Little & Ashley recorded “Fly Me Away” to accompany an Amazon commercial contest entry and was shot in a single seven hour day in July 2009. Ultimately, the contest entry won both the Audience and the Amazon Jury prize and Little & Ashley, with the help of trombonist Alanna Vicente, finished recording a full-length version of the song which is included on the Stole My Heart EP.
Little & Ashley went on to write and record the songs for all four of the campaign's ads, and Annie appeared in three. The series was directed and produced by her friends Angela Kohler and Ithyle Griffiths, with whom Annie met on a modeling job earlier that year.
Stole My Heart, which accompanied the second ad, went on to be the #1 downloaded song on Amazon in 2010.
Here are a few clips of Annie performing. The first two are from a special concert she performed recently with her mother at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, UT, Annie's hometown.
