Annie Boxell

Charleston-based keyboardist and songwriter Annie Boxell is wrapping up some studio sessions at Blacktree Studios with engineer Scott Sain (of PlaneJane) and at bandmate/drummer Jeff Mangan’s home studio. She plans to release her latest songs under the album title See the Light this winter.

Boxell formed the band Vicious Circle in 1998. Mangan, guitarist/bassist Jim Algar, guitarist Marty Parker, and other local musicians have pitched in on the sessions. “We’ve intentionally made this album short and sweet,” Boxell says. “Just enough for a nice drive home from work, but enough to keep them wanting.”

Boxell performs with Algar every Tuesday on Sullivan’s at Atlanticville from 7-10 p.m. and solo every Saturday downtown at Toast from 7-10 p.m. Her next full-band Vicious Circle gig is on Fri. Nov. 19 at Iacofano’s in Mt. P.
