"... a passionate prophetess who has come in from the wild, rough edges intact, and ready to rock"
"Great Songs. Amazing Energy. Brilliant Stage Presence. Don't miss her!"

"DeChant is first and last a story-teller, an artist who writes with a shit-kicker urgency and sweet understanding of the people who stumble and keep keeping on."
-Frye Gaillard, author, Watermelon Wine: Remembering the Golden Years of Country Music
"ANNE E. DeCHANT/Every Little Everything Greatest Hits v. 1: DeChant makes a good case for all that touchy feely girl power kind of themes like speaking your truth and being in integrity. By not being something she's not, her folk flavored material resonates throughout the folk/roots community and any place she calls home. A leading light in Cleveland, she decamped for Nashville and really began hitting it out of the park just as she was about to give up. This collection, complete with remasters of older tracks, is the proof it's a good thing she didn't give up. With a mass sensibility that never crosses over in to jive. This is a singer/songwriter that's really got it going on with flying colors."

"Just gave Anne E. DeChant's "Every Little Everything, Greatest Hits Volume I" a listen. It's a delight. For those of us who have been fans since the 1990s, you can go on a tour of every phase of her songwriting over the years and remember how you loved each tune when you first heard it. For those who don't know her music, I don't know if it's possible to come away from this compilation not being a fan and wanting more. I'm already in love with the new songs on the album. And as for the terrific collection of older tunes, like any greatest hits album from a great artist, you come away thinking that there could have been twice as many songs on it and it STILL wouldn't cover all her "great" ones. Thank you Anne E. DeChant for giving us this treat in the midst of all this crazy."
