Rock n roll is forged in pain and catapulted by tragedy. It is polished with unwillingness to travel any other road. That electricity brought these Northeast Florida women together as one, creating the band Annie Dukes.
Annie Dukes is a female fronted rock ‘n roll band out of Jacksonville, FL. The band formed after a death that connected each member. They have toured all over the southeast in their short time as a band, landing them direct support slots with artists like Nita Strauss, Plain White T’s, Thelma and the Sleaze, Blacktop Mojo and many more.
As soon as the band hit their local scene, they began to book shows. Having a full calendar during the early writing stages forced the band to find Annie’s heavy, raw, electric sound in front of crowds. It was hard work and honesty that pushed the band to tour early on and leave their hometown.
Cassidy Lee of Jacksonville, FL made her name playing, writing and touring the east coast leading her to spend time in Nashville. Recently, Lee appeared on The Voice. Cassidy now plays bass and shares her strong, sultry voice as lead singer of the band. She also shares her authentic songwriting and free spirit to the band’s sound, leading us with grit and grace.
Emma Moseley of St. Augustine, FL plays lead electric guitar. She fronted Emma Moseley Band for 8 years making multiple tours out west, including stops at SXSW and landing her as direct support to national acts. Leaving her role as front woman, songwriting and heavy riffs became her new obsession when joining Annie Dukes.
Michael Monahan (Mony) of St Augustine, FL studied music at Columbia College in Chicago. He spent 6 years with the internationally touring pop punk band We Still Dream, then joined Heart to Heart, touring as direct support to national artists. Mike met the girls in 2021 and the lineup was complete. With a dynamic, heavy hitter like Mony Duke, the Annies found their rock ‘n roll sound.
