Annie Sea sings socially conscious acoustic soul anthems to energize and empower her audience. Whether she is leading a band or weaving a solo live looped soundscape, her velvet voice and lively melodies deliver compelling stories of transformation.
Once a secretive songwriter, Annie began sharing her music after partial vision loss derailed her career as an environmental microbiologist. While adjusting to this change, she tuned more deeply to sound, strengthened her voice, and stepped into her new role as a powerful frontwoman. Her writing reflects her belief that we can collectively return to more sustainable way of living as well as her individual journey toward her true vision and purpose.
Annie released her third album, Shadows Insight, in 2017. Her music is featured on the 350.org compilation "Protect What You Love - Songs and Stories of the Pacific Northwest" and the film "Falling South". She has collaborated with hip hop artist Quincy Davis, and contributed vocals to the benefit album PDX Hip Hop for the Water Protectors. In 2018, she was voted People's Choice Artist at Flow Festival.
Based in the Green Dream tiny house in Portland, Oregon, Annie strives to pursue an eco-conscious life in alignment with her message.
