During her time with Cradle Of Filth between 2019-2022, Anabelle wrote and performed vocals, keys, lyre and orchestration on their studio album “Existence Is Futile”.

She also toured the United States, played Bloodstock Festival, The Roundhouse and performed on two live streams with the band.
In 2020, she unveiled her work as the Banshee of blackened horror metal band, “Veile” with guitarist Charles Hedger (a.i. Mayhem) and drummer, Frank Skillpero (a.i. God Dethroned, The Monolith Deathcult). They released their first EP, “The Ghost Sonata” in August 2021.
Anabelle is currently performing for “Black Land”, a series of performances and installations at the James-Simon-Galerie and Neues Museum also featuring Lea Draeger, Kenda Hmeidan, Charles Hedger and Attila Csihar.
She is also currently composing scores for SkyArts and Netflix-produced series and cinema releases.
When not working on original projects, Anabelle spends her time with students-giving lessons on: vocals, songwriting, composition and arrangement.
