The Savage Rose was formed in 1967 by siblings Thomas Koppel and Anders Koppel, respectively. composer and lyricist, who was born in a family of classical musicians. With the desire to create new music that connected to his time in the midst of a youth revolt, they created along with jazz drummer Alex Riel and a team of music club musicians a new and revolutionary sound. The inspiration came among others from the sixties new musical waves (in popular music) with a.o. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and James Brown.
Annisette (born 1948) was the youngest member but had sung from the scenes, since she was seven. She quickly became known in music environments for her voice with empathy and an own force, which made her way to the hearts of the audience. Also in the big wide world, The Savage Rose gained a lot of attention with their unique music, and contemporary legendary music magazine Rolling Stone's chief editor Lester Bangs, featured the band in praising reviews as one of the most interesting musical names of the time. The group has toured in the United States where their debut was at the Newport Festival, along with other legends, such as Sly And The Family Stone, James Brown and Miles Davis.
The Savage Rose has always contributed with their music where there was needed support to oppressed people and has traveled in the most vulnerable places in the world, by invitation from the locals. They have also produced music for theater, film, and ballets, including one of the greatest successes in Danish ballet history "Triumph of Death".
The Savage Rose has a history that spans five decades, and an equally long list of songs and melodies that have taken root in the many people who have followed the band. Songs with raw strength and gentle sensitivity dig down in the current cynicism, scratch holes in the surfaces and allow themselves to believe in the uncompromising love. In the latest ten years, The Savage Rose have consisted of a team of the finest musicians, each of them has distinguished themselves as soloists with their own compositions. Annisette describes it as an "Organic interaction where songs and music move along in a living cooperation in an unpredictable musical journey".
