Annie Little is an American singer-songwriter, and actress who co-wrote/sings the songs, and performs in the animated stop-motion commercials for the Amazon Kindle. Initially, directors Ithyle Griffiths and Angela Kohler created a video that was chosen out of a contest that Amazon.com held where they asked for user submissions. Amazon aired the commercial nationally and went on to have the team create three more 30-second spots. Annie appeared in two more and her duo "Little & Ashley" composed and performed the music for all of them.[1] The first commercial of the series uses stop motion in rhythm of her song Fly Me Away, which Amazon has given away for free in their MP3 store.

The second commercial of the series using the same stop motion filming, this time in the tune of a duet song performed with her husband Marcus Ashley called Stole My Heart. This song was once given away for free on Amazon's website, but is now being sold for $0.99.[2] The third commercial aired for Mother's Day and uses Little & Ashley's song "Come On Let's Go". The final commercial in the series was a holiday ad using Little & Ashley's song "Winter Night" which ran in the UK in 2011 and 2012.

Since the commercials have debuted, Little has released three EPs with Little & Ashley.

In Christmas 2010, TJX Companies aired a commercial for TJ Maxx and Marshalls, featuring Annie Little and the theme "There's a better way to Christmas shop".
