Here's what the press are saying about her latest album Broken Promise Land.
"McCue has delivered an exceptional album..." if magazine
"... stratospheric guitar work, whisky-soaked voice and songs crackling with classic intensity and modern energy define Broken Promise Land as a prime example of raw and dirty Blues Rock in the new millennium..." Cincinnati City Beat
"... Anne McCue, whose new CD is grittier and more alive than what is being released by most male rockers these days...." thepromiselive.com
"McCue shows a grit and resolve that makes "Broken Promise Land" a delight. As impressive as she is as a folk artist, it's playing hard-drivin' blues rock where McCue seems most at home." Pittsburg Daily News
"...emblematic of the persona she carries throughout this blistering, exhilarating ride." Alternate Root
"Australian singer-songwriter Anne McCue's latest is her strongest to date. McCue captures the vibe of blues musician Albert King while maintaining her own style - a hybrid of blues, rock and "swamp music." ... Broken Promise Land also showcases McCue's exceptional guitar skills."Don't Go To Texas (Without Me)" harkens back to the dirty guitar sounds of the Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds. The title track cuts loose with a Hendrix-like bluesy guitar solo. Her strong songwriting ability is evident..." Elmore Magazine
