ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ANNE IS TOURING the U.S. East Coast in July and plays Nashville April 30th. http://www.annemccue.com/tour.html for details.

"This new album is such a beauty. The song Beautiful Thing is stunning. I love every song on this record...maybe because Anne McCue is my Aussie clone!" NANCY WILSON (HEART)

"Anne McCue has made an amazing album - produced and recorded by herself. It sounds great, with her usual high standard of songwriting. I only wish I could have played on it." DUSTY WAKEMAN (Producer/Engineer: Lucinda Williams/Dwight Yoakam/Michelle Shocked)

"Anne's got a great set of studio skills. A one-woman tour de force on all those instruments." GURF MORLIX (Producer: Lucinda Wiliams/Mary Gauthier)

"Anne McCue sounds like a woman of the world in the best way; for those of you out there who are sick of having the wheel reinvented, who want a little grit, a sense of someone who felt it and some really good tunes that sound like they were played not toyed with go get East Of Electric. It’s really, really good." DEBORAH CONWAY

Anne McCue has recently been included along with Bob Dylan, the Byrds, Patty Griffin and other great artists in the collection '4 Decades of Folk Rock' and was a special guest at the International Guitar Festival.

She has released her new album "East Of Electric" in 2008. McCue recorded and produced the album at her own Flying Machine Studio in Nashville. It was mixed by Mike Esser at 16 Ton Studio and was mastered by Ray Kennedy at Zen Masters (Car Wheels On A Gravel Road).

McCue recorded the album whilst waiting to record a new electric album. Inspired by the golden era of folk pop music which took place in the late sixties with such albums as Rubber Soul, Aftermath, bands like The Byrds and artists like Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Anne set about recording, playing every instrument she could get her hands on - guitars, mandolin, cheatin' banjo, piano, harmonica, lap steel, slide banjo, bass guitar, ukulele, shaker, tambourine, organ, drum etc.

Special guests include Eamon McLoughlin of The Green Cards (violin, viola & cello); Irish singer/songwriter Tony Kerr (backing vocals); artist Leslie Mills (tapdance) and Dave Ray of The Coalmen (snare drum) . While Anne is primarily known for her guitar playing skills, she gets to stretch out here on many other instruments and undertook all production and recording duties for the album. She was also able to call on her arranging skills for the string section in "Money In The Morning".

"I wanted to stay close to that late sixties folk rock ethic, keeping it real, not adding too much instrumentation, keeping the story and the melody in the forefront ... Being included on the '4 Decades of Folk Rock' anthology encouraged me to follow this path and style which I am naturally inclined toward anyway. Recording an album at home seemed like something great and productive to do whilst waiting for the dust to settle in the music business around me..." says McCue.

As one of the foremost female guitarists of our time, Anne has been invited to play at the Jimi Hendrix Tribute Concert at the Adelaide Guitar Festival alongside world renowned guitarists such as Vernon Reid and John Hammond.

Anne has appeared as guest guitarist/vocalist on albums by Michelle Shocked, Gina Villalobos and Stephen Rowe and has been featured in Guitar Player Magazine, No Depression, Harp, Performing Songwriter, Billboard, Australian Musician etc...

Her song 'Stupid' is included on the Time Life release '4 Decades Of Folk Rock' which features such legendary artists as Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Suzanne Vega and Patty Griffin.

She has released her fourth solo album, Koala Motel, to critical acclaim and has recently co-produced two albums by other artists - Stephen Rowe and Leila Florentino.

Guests on 'Koala Motel' include Lucinda Williams, John Doe, Nancy Wilson (Heart), Jim Lauderdale and Doug 'Lovejoy' Pettibone.

Anne recently took part in The Broad Festival - a national tour of Australia put together by Deborah Conway in which she played at concert halls all over Australia including the Sydney Opera House.

acoustic koala
====ok i liked roll, more koala motel. what can i say about this! well first i'm not a fan of turning off the electricity - and i get very troubled at the thought of someone playing all the instruments on their album (memories of john fogerty spoiling centerfield!). i love this album. you have to hear it to believe it but it's all true.

David Marr

Dave Elkow

Absolutely Excellent
Anne wrote the songs, crafted the lyrics, and plays nearly every instrument, which is fantastic. Then you add her vocals and WOW, this is really great. This is my 4th CD of Anne McCue's, and I am hooked for sure.

Dusty Wakeman

An Amazing Album
Anne McCue has made an amazing album - produced and recorded by herself. It sounds great, with her usual high standard of songwriting. I only wish I could have played on it." DUSTY WAKEMAN _ PRODUCER-ENGINEER FOR LUCINDA WILLIAMS, DWIGHT YOAKAM, MICHELLE SHOCKED etc.

Frank L. Wright


It\'s easy to fall in love with Annie...cute, playing her electric guitar in a small club, she asked if she needed to turn the volume down...and we all said no.
The audacity to play Hendrixs....very well.
Annie is one of the-not-to-be-missed emerging gems and destined to join the ranks of Kelly Joe Phelps, Chris Smithers,and John Prine.
I guess that I didn\'t mention any females.
Her electric Hendrix guitar work is the best that I have ever heard..man or woman.
This is one woman that deserves your respect. Walk a mile...Do yourself a favor!





Anne has great crowd contact
