Album Notes
Annie Humphrey is an Ojibwe mother, singer,
songwriter and visual artist who was born and raised
on the Leech Lake Reservation in Northern Minnesota.

Annie discovered at the age of eight that playing the
piano and guitar came easy to her, and she began
writing songs as a young adult.

Feeling smothered on the Reservation, Annie enlisted
in the United States Marine Corp at the age of 23.
Near the end of her four-year tour she graduated from
Police Academy in San Marcos, California. In 1994,
Annie was honrably discharged from the Marines.

Since that time, Annie has concentrated on motherhood
and music and feels her role as a mother is her
greatest accomplishment. "My children are the
inspiration for all I do," says Annie.

Annie's music career began out of pure necessity.
With two young children to care for, she began
performing at coffee houses and local events. Over
the years her songwriting has focused on a specific
theme with a message to "Be brave and have a good

Her first recording, The Heron Smiled, won her
national recognition as Female Artist of the Year and
Best Folk Recording at the 2000 Native American Music
Awards. In 2004, her second recording, Edge of
America was ereleased. The title track from this
recording was later featured on Chris Eyre's film Edge
of America.

Prior to her career as a musician, performer and
recording artist with Makoche' Recording Company,
Annie also studied painting and sculpture.

Today Annie has three children and is happily married
to her husband Mark (also a former Marine). Annie
continues to write music and perform, while also
pursuing her art creer. Her special interest is
Turtle Heart, a group she founded that works with
youth in her community to promote positive lifestyle
