OUT Sept 8, 2020
THE LOW ROAD
Americana born & BRED
raised with a bluesy soul
feet that were made for country roads
A heart that was MADE
FOR rock 'n' roll.
The daughter to a single mom, Annie grew up in a household with plenty of love, but without enough money to buy groceries or school clothes, let alone music lessons. Enamored with the idea of playing an instrument, she borrowed an old dented trumpet from her elementary school and taught herself to play. As a poor, nerdy, introverted kid with frizzy hair and bad skin, music became her connector to the world and her ticket to college.
Post-college, she decided she didn’t want to have to live in a van down by the river to be a musician, so she took a 15 year hiatus from trumpet to get a doctorate and start a company in Austin Texas. She reconnected with her musical roots when she picked up her first set of drumsticks in 2018 and found the instrument she was meant to play. It was an immediate and slippery slope back into the music world and the place her heart had always lived.
Having never sung in front of ANYONE, not even wanting to try karaoke out of sheer terror at the thought of singing publicly, Annie decided to finally conquer her fear. She taught herself guitar and wrote her first song in 2019, a defining moment and the last best thing she has ever done. And no, that song isn't on here...it was terrible! Nice try.
As her songwriting progressed she became frustrated with the challenge of finding the right mix of committed, talented, and most importantly fun, people to form a band. She decided to just learn to play everything herself, and to record and produce her own music until she could find the right people to join her in her shenanigans.
Annie is currently working on her first album and will release it later this year.
Keep an eye out....cause she doesn’t like to suck at things. ;)
