Getting to Know Me, getting to know all about me
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 and Terry Roland of No Depression:
... "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.”
"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
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. And please find a joint where you can come hear me live. I'm glad you're here. If I could offer you a cold beer (not a virtual one cause that's as useless as an O'Douls) I would!
You're beautiful. Rock On!
