9th-IMA-Nominee-Anne-McCueShe was voted the Roots Music Association’s Folk Artist of the Year in 2008, performed in a Jimi Hendrix tribute at the 2007 International Guitar Festival and was included in the Four Decades of Folk Rock box set alongside the likes of Bob Dylan and Wilco. Heart’s Nancy Wilson has described her as “my Aussie clone,” while Americana icon Lucinda Williams had this to say: “Initially, her stunning voice hooked me in. Then I got inside the songs. The first chance I got, I went to see her perform . . . I was floored! The combination of her tomboyish beauty mixed with the precision and assertiveness with which she approached the guitar, her surrounding languid and earthy vocals created an intoxicating blend.”Her love of music forged in Sydney, Australia, McCue landed in America after performing on the Lilith Fair tour. After setting up shop in Los Angeles, she became a vital part of the city’s roots music scene, recording two attention-grabbing albums: 2004’s Roll and 2006’s Koala Motel. Both releases garnered critical accolades. Billboard heralded her as the “virtual definition of ‘triple threat.’ A potent singer, thoughtful songwriter and tough guitarist.” Her recent album, Broken Promise Land, showcases McCue’s rocking sensibility and six-string virtuosity. These days, she spends a great deal of time in Nashville, honing her distinctive hybrid style of grassroots rock, blues, and folk.

amelia-333x500Alternate Root calls Amelia a “Nashville Treasure.” She lives and writes with others in town, but is no “Nashville hat act.” In a recent interview she describes herself as “Considerably more Neil Young than Taylor Swift.” Maybe it is that left of center quality that draws other writers such as Lori McKenna, Tony Furtado, Tom Kimmel, and Bill Lloyd to collaborate with her. Anne McCue cut her song “Motorcycle Dream” on her recent album BROKEN PROMISE LAND. 

Amelia’s discography begins in 1999 with COMES and GOES produced by Tucker Martine (Laura Viers), followed by BLUE SOUVENIRS (2001), which was recorded at the legendary Fort Apache Studio B and is produced by Brian Brown (Juliana Hatfield). Both albums started a strong current, mostly by word of mouth. Blue Souvenirs found a spot on NPR’s “All Songs Considered,” and Amelia began the relentless touring through both the States and Europe.

After moving to Nashville, she recorded BLACK DOVES with Neilson Hubbard (Kim Richey). This album exposed her further in the Americana/AAA/ Roots world after getting picked up and promoted heavily by Funzalo Records. She appeared on E-TOWN, got steady Non-com radio play and songs got placed in several T.V. shows including a recent spot on FX’s Justified. Critics loved the album, and the Song ”Black Doves was the subject of an entire blog post by Peter Blackstock in No Depression. Her newest album is Beautiful and Wild.
