Hailing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, Annie Stokes grew up on poetry, folk, and musical theater. After adding guitar to the mix at age 20, everything clicked — and Stokes has been playing her unique blend of Americana across the East Coast ever since.
Annie’s latest release, “Real Good”, is a self described “anthem for folks who are trying their best.” She wrote this track to make light of falling short of who she wants to be, to push forward, and keep trying to change.
“Real Good” feels soft and airy, a gentle push to do better. Lilting vocals meld perfectly together with her combination of folky acoustic guitar strums and winding electric guitar. Harmonies weave in and out of the chorus, brightening the track and leaving the listener feeling just a bit lighter.
