Annie Cilley’s new EP is three stories told through song. Acoustic instruments, voices, strings, samples, and electronics decorate the worlds in which these stories take place - a forest, an ocean, and a haunted mind.
Three Songs incorporates elements of electronic music, chamber jazz, gypsy jazz, and folk music. Annie’s background as a gypsy jazz singer, folk fiddle player, and electronic musician help inform her sound. The landscape of her birthplace, rural Petaluma, CA, informs the imagery in her lyrics and the whimsical stories that they tell.
Annie now lives in Oakland, CA, where she studies music composition and production at Mills College.
