The Oshy Annas are a three-part harmony-based indie band hailing from Brooklyn, New York by way of the rocky shoals of Star Island, New Hampshire.
For many summers, Ali Millard, Carla Diaz, and Chloe Kostman worked and sang under the roof of the Oceanic Hotel. They performed at island musicales and barn concerts before moving to Brooklyn and formally joining forces as a band. Today, their powerful harmonies, folky instrumentation, and lyrical narrative trace a path from that rocky coast, to the city, to the woods of Appalachia, and many other makeshift homes in between. They regularly collaborate with dreamboats Maddie Legro and Jamie Sandel.
Their influences can be attributed to female vocalists and groups, such as The Staves, The Brandi Carlile Band, The Wailin' Jenny's, and First Aid Kit--all of whom The Oshy Annas perceive as being part of a larger effort to revive the role of barefaced sincerity in contemporary songwriting and performance.
