Anné is a Finnish-born composer, producer and songwriter working in film and commercials.

She's known for composing the scores for feature films 'Paradise Highway' (starring Juliette Binoche and Morgan Freeman) and 'The War Below' (starring Sam Hazeldine, Kris Hitchen and Tom Goodman-Hill).

Anné has also composed scores for multi-award-winning short films, including Ridley Scott Associates' 3D film 'The Foundling' and 'Night Dancing', which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival.

In addition to her work in films, Anné has scored TV commercials and brand films for a diverse range of global brands, including Nike, Toyota, IKEA, Under Armour, Pfizer and Epson. Her score 'Like The Night' for the iconic camera brand Leica won multiple awards in 2020/2021, including Creative Circle, Ciclope and Cresta Awards. Other award-winning work includes 'The Two Lives of Sara' for Roche and most recently her score for Nike's 'You Can't Stop Us: Victory Swim' campaign, which won multiple awards in 2021, including a Wood Pencil at the prestigious D&AD Awards.

Comfortable working across a wide range of musical genres, Anné's diverse musical output ranges from electronica to classical, ambient to jazz and vocal music to sound art. Juxtaposing the musically classic with the sonically unconventional is intrinsic to her voice and perspective. While her musical style has been refined and inspired by the many years spent in the UK, it was born and forged in Finland.
