Words We Mean

by Annie Oakley

Words We Mean is the debut full-length album of Oklahoma City-based indie-folk trio Annie Oakley. In the works for three years, the album follows the all-girl band from youth to womanhood through songs with remarkable artistic range. Immaculate vocal harmonies and sharply observant lyrics embody themes of grief, recovery, wistful regrets and misplaced hopes, and new love in this much-anticipated release.

The award-winning band is fronted by twin sisters Sophia and Grace Babb on rhythm and lead guitars and vocals, with Nia Personette on violin and third-part harmony. Official showcase artists at Folk Alliance International in 2017, the trio toured on weekends and breaks from college. University seniors who plan to tour full-time nationally and internationally in 2019-20, Annie Oakley plays regularly to sold-out crowds throughout
the Midwest and on both coasts.
