Hailing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Annie Stokes is a dark Americana songstress and storyteller. Raised on musical theater and her mom’s oldies, she began writing poetry and short stories at a young age. When she picked up a guitar at age 20, everything clicked and she fulfilled her destiny of becoming an emotional millennial troubadour. She began her career by playing open mics, street festivals, and wineries around her native Virginia, slowly graduating to festivals, night clubs, and regional tours across the East Coast. Eventually, happenstance performances culminated in the release of an EP and three albums. Her most recent release, “The One That Gets Away,” which debuted in March of 2021, recently won “Best Americana/Country Album” at the 2022 Wammies Awards. It has also garnered attention from Blue Ridge Daytime TV, Independent Artist Buzz, The Washington Post, and various blogs and playlists. Her next release is planned for summer 2022.
