2 great artists on one night!!

Bluesy songstress and multi-instrumentalist Anne McCue has just recorded her 6th studio album – Blue Sky Thinkin’  – with co-producer Dusty Wakeman  (Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam) in Los Angeles. The album reunites the band from her critically acclaimed ‘Roll’ album and allows Anne to explore some of her favourite influences, including Billy Holiday, Charlie Christian, Howlin’ Wolf, Astor Piazzola, Peggy Lee, Bessie Smith, Django Reinhardt, Memphis Minnie…Alternative Country icon Lucinda Williams has said of McCue: “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!”Born in Sydney,Australia, McCue has toured the world playing her music in Concert Halls, pubs and festivals, living for a year in Vietnam. She has most recently been based in East Nashville, a thriving songwriting community on the Cumberland River’s left bank.

“I’ve been a fan of guitarist/singer/songwriter Annie McCue for many years so I’m very honored and happy about singing with her on a damn fine song for her upcoming album. She wrote the song with John Hadley and the brilliant David Olney. You can’t go wrong with such talent.”  Dave Alvin

“I had done some gigs with Annie McCue out in California and thought that besides her phenomenal playing and great songs she had a unique presence. She has an angelic quality to her but also a Charlie Chaplin-esque vibe. Fearless and tender and alluring.” David Olney

Grant_Peeples-by-Steve_Circeo-10EditFolk/Roots artist Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes as well as Roger Miller type humor and heart gigging ballads. Songwriting legend Bobby Braddock described him “like Prine, but with a Southern bent.” Music News Nashville called him “a guitar-slinging poet.”

Peeples tours have included performances at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, OK, The Living Room in  New York City, and The Triple Door in Seattle. His records, produced by Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen) have topped Folk/Roots charts in the US and in Europe.
