Bare Islands

Bare Islands are musician & songwriter, Brendan Picchio (Howling Bells, Alison Wonderland) and actress, Annalisa Astarita (Strange Factories, The Telling) .

Annalisa has been promoting club-nights in London and touring across Europe (including Manumission, Ibiza) since her late teens, and introduced Brendan to DJing when they first met in 2008. Their mutual appreciation for a wide array of arts and music made them a formidable team both on and off the decks. Alongside their touring, recording and filming schedules, they played residencies with venues such as The Ivy Club (LDN), The Met Bar, The Sanderson Hotel and Selfridges Rooftop. Individually they have played after-shows for Jay-Z and Coldplay and created mixes for Todd Lynn’s London Fashion week shows. In a nod to their Italian heritage, they also acted as brand ambassadors for Martini.

Bare Islands is the idyll whereupon they share their various creative projects and collaborations…
