My singing style? Scott Shriner, of Record Publishing Co. puts it best.
…"DeChant doesn’t sound like Sheryl Crow. She doesn’t sound like the Indigo Girls, or the Dixie Chicks, or any of the other acts I’ve heard her likened to. She’s a woman with her own distinct voice, her own unmistakable style. She sounds like Anne E. DeChant. And nobody — nobody — sounds like Anne E. DeChant as well as she does.
My performance style? The Cleveland Plain Dealer puts it best..
…"Now there's a woman with a fire in her belly"
My writing style? I'll give that to Nashville's Scene Magazine.
... "her songs, enriched by her political consciousness, nail blue-collar grit in a way few writers do, like her stellar mid-tempo country number “Home To Me,” which zeroes in on the perspective of a teenage girl whose family lost their trailer in a tornado.”
It ain't all trailers and tornados though. There are a few pick up trucks and girls and airplanes too. There's also the occasional 'silly love song'! So come on in, traipse around a bit, listen to some tunes, check out my blog for the latest news and revelations (they are vast. Ha!), pick up a t-shirt, a hat, or download my CDs.

We're getting closer and closer to the completion of "The Sun Coming In". I think you'll all be really pleased. Right now days are filled with preparing all your packages to be mailed out to you in August. You'll be receiving your perks via email or snail mail depending on your perk.… Read more

Wow! Last night I watched Carlos Carrasco come within one pitch of a no-hitter tonight as The Cleveland Indians took on the Tampa Bay Rays. What a great performance.

It was… Read more

One of the perks on my Indiegogo Campaign is "Hometown Jelly". This is perhaps the most personal to me as it is a jar of jelly that I will make for you using grapes from the vines of my great grandfather, Edward DeChant. Two years ago my mother prepared two vines for me from those that are in her… Read more
