Annie Sea’s music weaves the tender, groovy soul of Tracy Chapman and India Arie with the folk lyricism of Joni Mitchell. Her poignant, earth-centered songs appeal to fans of Ayla Nereo and Rising Appalachia, while her clever, humorous tunes provide a twist on the standard singer-songwriter fare. Based in the Green Dream tiny home in Portland, Oregon, she strives to pursue an eco-conscious life in alignment with her message.
Annie’s music is featured in the documentary Dammed to Extinction, on the 350.org compilation Protect What You Love – Songs and Stories of the Pacific Northwest, and the film Falling South. Her music was also featured on the Women of Substance Podcast’s “”Music with a Conscience”” series. She sang backing vocals on the song “”One and the Same”” for the debut album by the hip hop collaborative, Rebel Wise. She opened for nationally touring artist and 2016 NPR Tiny Desk winner, Gaelynn Lea, in October 2017. In 2022, she received a Holler Grant, honoring musicians creating impactful work, for her last music video release, Aligning.
Whether she is leading a band or weaving a solo live looped soundscape, Annie’s velvet voice and lively melodies energize and empower her audience. She released a series of singles, Tiny House Loft, Save Me, and Quarantine in 2021-2022. These songs, along with the title track Aligning, were released as an EP collection on September 9, 2022.
