She was born and raised in Maine and reared musically in San Francisco over nearly two decades, but like her band, the OSHEN (a rotating cast of musicians), life offers change at a near constant pace. She and her family relocated to Ann Arbor in mid 2018. From that new perch, Bacon undertook the band's fifth project, Nothing stays the same. The 14 song album incorporates four existing singles with ten new tracks, and is the most finely expressed example of the sweet rock sound for which Annie & her OSHEN have become adored.
For seven of the ten new songs, Annie traveled to Nashville, working with producer and bassist Paul Defiglia (The Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim) at his Sensitive Sound studio. For each song, she gathered a crew of dear friends and longtime collaborators. She managed to bring nearly all of her favorite singers onto the album, stepping back to harmonies to feature Rachel Garcia and Meryl T. Press on “Long road” and “Next time you see me” respectively. Nine months, five studios, 22 musicians and one message: nothing stays the same.
