ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Annie Oakley is an Oklahoma City-based Americana band fronted by twin sisters Sophia and Grace Babb. Known for flawless vocal harmonies and sharply observant lyrics, the sisters have been creating a stir in Oklahoma’s nationally respected indie music scene. They exude confidence through a sophisticated stage presence yet connect with the audience as with personal friends, a winning combination that led to Rising Star and Best Local Band awards in 2015.

Singing together since childhood, Sophia and Grace picked up guitars and started songwriting after their father’s death compelled them to find an emotional outlet. A year later, they were joined by their friend Nia Personette on violin, herself no stranger to loss—she, too, had lost her father shortly before joining the band.

The group released their first self-produced and -recorded EP, "Annie Oakley," in 2013. Since then, they’ve honed their songwriting and performance skills at venues and festivals every weekend while concurrently enrolled in high school and college.

The Oklahoma Gazette wrote of the prodigious duo as “speaking the same throwback folk-Americana language that eludes most others at their tender age [ . . . ] their pristine but pillow-soft voices folding into immaculate harmonies the envy of even the most vetted musical collaborators out there.”

These young women have earned legitimacy among fellow singer-songwriters and venue owners, sharing the bill with notables such as Samantha Crain, Andrew Hardin and Jeannie Burns, Kyle Reid, and Grant Peeples, among others.

Crain, internationally recognized for her emotive vocals and lyrics, produced the latest release for Annie Oakley, “Thought Of You A God” (2015). Gorgeous vocal harmonies and lyrical perfection combine in this moody new CD recorded at Lunar Manor Studio.

The youngest performers to ever play Oklahoma City’s iconic listening room, The Blue Door, the group’s release show sold out within five days. Variously compared with Fleet Foxes, First Aid Kit, and the Wailin’ Jennys, these girls are a sensation that inspired this review from Corridor Magazine:

“These sisters harmonize like fresh made bread and home churned butter, sweetened with just a touch of molasses. I hear strains of Mindy Smith here, and the comparisons could go on. But why make comparisons when you can just listen to them? To see and hear such magic when it first comes to bloom, to watch it grow and spread smiles and wonder across a wider world is indeed a privilege and pleasure. Don't miss them when they come to your area!”
