Hello and thank you for stopping by.  You've reached the stomping grounds of me, Singer/Songwriter, Anne E. DeChant.  

"DeChant is our wake-up call to all of the possibilities found in songs and stories when they're told with integrity, honesty and heart.  She is what the future of Americana music needs to

be in order to endure."

    -No Depression, Terry Roland

"There's virtue in honesty, and in intuition, and in openess, and in tough-minded decency.  Those things may or may not make for fine art.  In the hands, heart, and voice of Anne E. DeChant, they may, they might, and they do."
-Peter Cooper, editor, Country Music Hall of Fame

“'Fly Away' is so poignant and well written it ought to be a huge country hit for someone."

           -Cool Cleveland, Anastasia Pantsios

Peace RNC, Canadian Respite, This Weekend's Shows 

Happy Tuesday to you all! 

It's a big week as the RNC kicked off in Cleveland Ohio on Monday.  My home city has been host to so many things this summer!  I pray for peace this week as people face the challenge of acting and responding in a peaceful and respectful manner.  Won't it be wonderful if this week, we can honor one another's freedom of speech and move through all activities without one violent incident?  I believe we can!

Light the Weary World, June 15, 2016 

It's hard to believe that once again, we're all discussing another awful day in our country.  My friend and co-writer Frye Gaillard shared the following on Sunday.... 

" To those who like to say, God Bless America, I prefer a different prayer for the country as we continue our drift toward violence, division and hate. May God have mercy upon us." 

I will be at The Avon Lake United Church of Christ on Sunday at 11am where the deadly violence in Orlando will surely be a topic.  I will share "Light the Weary…

Happy Tuesday to you all! 

A nice gentleman from Toronto, singer/songwriter, Kirk Felix, asked me for chords to "Go Get Joe" (free download for you below) as he would like to perform it.  Rather than sending him a chord chart, I made an instructional video!  I decided to share it with all of you in case you'd like to learn to play the song.  I also ask that if you do, you'll send me a video of you performing it.  I would love to see it.  And please leave your comments for the video in the comment section…
