Back to 2016 Alumni

Annuals are an indie-pop collective founded by Adam Baker in Raleigh, NC in 2002. Since rising to prominence in 2006 with their hit single, “Brother,” the band has gone on to produce three studio albums and tour the country countless times. Now, with Baker calling Los Angeles his home and surrounded by a brand new company of talented musicians, Annuals are working on completing their fourth studio album, due for release in 2016. Alongside an ever-rotating lineup that includes Jordan Robins on guitar, Eric Notarnicola on bass, Britt Rand on keys, Tim Casey splitting time between guitar and drums, and Cole Robert Carson on drums, Baker is using the same approach and following the same instincts that have been driving him since he broke onto the scene as a teenager, write the accessibly eccentric music that comes naturally to him, and when it comes to live performance, unleash it. No holds barred. With new music on the way, Annuals is not out to redefine themselves. They are simply continuing what they’ve been doing for more than a decade, creating their unique brand of genre-bending pop music that keeps their loyal fanbase clamoring for more.
