Profile:
Danish singer, guitarist, keyboardist, songwriter, composer and author born on July 30, 1953 in Åbyhøj, Aarhus. Linnet is a pioneer in female rock, and has remained a highly acclaimed artist in Denmark over a five-decade career.

Started her career as folk musician in 1969 and was in Tears from 1971 to 1976 with then husband Holger Laumann. Released her debut album Sweet Thing in 1973, and founded all-female band Shit & Chanel in 1973 with a.o. Lis Sørensen, with whom she also sang backing vocals for a.o Gasolin'. After Shit & Chanel dissolved in 1979, she founded Anne Linnet Band with Lis Sørensen and Sanne Salomonsen. In 1983, she founded the new wave band Marquis De Sade (7), that released three albums and broke up in 1988, but reunited in 2002 for the album Over Mig Under Mig. In 1997, she founded her second all-female band Bitch Boys (4). Linnet has released two popular albums with lyrics by the Danish writer Tove Ditlevsen, Kvindesind and Barndommens Gade, as well as three albums for Danish musicals, Roserne Bryder Ud (Musical Af Anne Linnet Og Erik Knudsen), Linnet • Salomonsen, and Krig Og Kærlighed.

Linnet's memoir "Testamentet" (2012) describes multiple homosexual relationships, and her bisexuality is reflected in some of her songs, for example "Smuk Og Dejlig" from Shit & Chanel - Shit & Chanel. Her father died in 1979, which had a big impact on subsequent releases, such as Anne Linnet - Marquis De Sade and Anne Linnet - Barndommens Gade.
