Annie Haslam (born 8 June 1947, Bolton, Lancashire) is an English progressive rock vocalist and songwriter.

Originally a fashion student, she began studying under opera singer Sybil Knight in 1970 and developed her five-octave vocal range. In 1971, she became the lead singer of Renaissance after answering an advertisement in a magazine and auditioning for the band in Surrey.

In 1977, she began her solo career with her album Annie in Wonderland, produced by Roy Wood who played most of the musical instruments, and who also duetted with her on one track, and also performed on the Intergalactic Touring Band album. Haslam and Wood were engaged to be married for four years, which she later described as "Four of the funniest years of my life".[1] She has since released eight studio albums, three of which were released through her own record label, White Dove. She has also collaborated with Steve Howe on a number of projects.

In 1993 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which she survived and which became the inspiration for her 1994 album, Blessing in Disguise.[2]

Her 2006 Live Studio Concert, was also released as her first solo DVD. Haslam released an EP called Night and Day, her first solo recording for some years, with Welsh rock band Magenta in 2006.

Haslam currently resides in Central Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
