Anne Marjanna Nurmi (born 22 August 1968 in Tampere) is a Finnish singer, composer and keyboard player who is a member of the band Lacrimosa. She lives in Switzerland.

In her youth she sang in church choirs and began playing keyboards. Nurmi is a contralto singer.[citation needed]

In 1987, Anne and a singer named Jyrki started a gothic rock band called Noidat (Finnish: The Witches). In 1989, two more members, Nauku and Toby, joined the band. The band then changed its name to Two Witches and started writing its lyrics in English.

In 1993, Two Witches toured together with Lacrimosa, where Anne met the German-born musician Tilo Wolff. Tilo was so fascinated by Anne's voice that he invited her to join his project and so Anne became a member of Lacrimosa in 1994.
