WHO THE HELL IS TRASHY ANNIE? 

"This sure ain't Taylor Swift or Lady A type of country. This is as edgy, darker, and even grubbier than Ashley McBryde or early Kasey Musgraves ever went...and I bloody love it!" -Rockin Magpie 

 

Described by their fans as "rock 'n' roll with a country soul", Trashy Annie came crashing onto the music scene in 2021, led by trumpet player turned award winning songwriter and 2023 CMA of Texas Americana Artist of the Year Annie Davis.

 

After teaching herself to play one chord on the guitar in 2020, she wrote her first song. Armed with that one chord, a belly full of whiskey, and the intention of checking off a lifelong and paralyzing fear of singing in public, she stepped up to her first open mic in early 2020, just before COVID hit the world. Three minutes and 45 seconds of fear turned into the best thing she had ever done. She fell head over heels in love with songwriting and spent the pandemic writing, teaching herself every instrument she could get her hands on, and learning how to arrange and co-produce her own music. She released her first song, her one-chord tune "Runnin", in late 2020.

 

After the release of Runnin, Annie (a self proclaimed technophobe of epic proportions) decided to teach herself to film and edit a music video during the height of the pandemic. She filmed and edited the video by herself and proudly posted it on YouTube, only to face the immediate realization that social media is not a world for the faint of heart. Criticized for wearing clothes that were "too young" for her,  Annie decided then and there that if people want to call her trashy, or judge her for the clothes she wears instead of the music she makes, then "Trashy Annie" it is, and the band name was born. A staunch advocate for believing in oneself, never giving up on the things we love, and unapologetically being who we are no matter what anyone else thinks, it was the perfect fit.

 

After catching the attention of Nashville following her 2nd release (Nuclear Meltdown) In late 2022, Annie was invited to record her next few tunes with Dean Miller (son of legendary Country Music Hall of Famer Roger Miller) along with musicians from The Wallflowers, Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, and a host of other big-time acts.  Following the release of Knock Knock, a song planted firmly in the rock genre, Annie was signed to indie giant Cleopatra Records out of LA i n anticipation of her debut full-length album. She reunited with her Nuclear Meltdown production team and began work on her first full-length album, due out in early 2023. She collected a powerhouse group of musicians, including bass player Miles Barker, lead guitarists Sinclair Noire and Dallas Dillard, and Drummer Ryan Smith, and started to play both in and out of Texas.  Trashy Annie hit the road in 2022 and is expanding their tour throughout the US in 2023, much to the delight of their ever-growing and incredibly loyal fan base.
