Annie Guthrie is the middle daughter of folksinger Arlo Guthrie and artist Jackie Guthrie. She is a prolific songwriter and versatile musician who primarily plays acoustic guitar, bass, percussion and autoharp. Annie’s songs are honest, ranging from light and funny to gut-wrenching heartbreak (mostly gut-wrenching heartbreak); as her grandfather Woody Guthrie said, “You can only write what you see,” and she has taken that to heart, writing songs that tell it like it is.
Dragonfly is Annie Guthrie’s long-awaited solo debut released in July of 2016. This collection of songs penned by Guthrie showcases her gift for directness and going straight for the heart. Annie’s honest approach to songwriting coupled with her soulful delivery makes Dragonfly a compelling and notable solo premiere.
Annie’s single “Feistier Than Gin,” released December 2017, features Annie’s fierce wit and dark humor. Don’t ask her how she really feels—she will tell you! Feeling angry after the passing of her mother in 2012, Annie penned Feistier Than Gin in early 2013. “I was trying to lighten my mood, this is what I got. Music is the soundtrack to life. I was pissed that my mom died, and in love at the same time. When I put those feelings together with my guitar, Feistier Than Gin surfaced.”
