Anne McCue - Blue Sky Thinkin(Live in Shöppingen)

Anne McCue - Blue Sky Thinkin(Live in Shöppingen)
Anne McCue groeide op aan de oostkust van Australië, Sidney was niet ver weg en daar richtte ze haar eerste band op, Vertigo (vrij overgenomen van Hitchkock). 

Ze verhuisde al snel naar Melbourne, waar ze zich aansloot bij de vrouwelijke powerband Girl Monstar en hun leadgitarist werd. Met deze formatie had ze twee nummer één-hits. 
Maar ze bleef ook niet lang in Melbourne, ze verhuisde naar Californië, waar ze haar eerste soloalbum "Amazing Ordinary Things" opnam.
 Tournees door de VS volgden, onder meer met de Amerikaanse rootsl egende Lucinda Williams. Deze band duurde tot op de dag van vandaag en maakte haar al snel zeer bekend in de VS. In 2007 verhuisde ze naar het hart van de country- en roots muziek, naar Nashville. Hier vervolgde ze haar carrière als muzikant, songwriter en producer voor artiesten als Michelle Shocked, Emma Swift en Robyn Hitchcock.

Ze maakte ook carrière als art director en radiopresentator. Ze werkt graag achter de schermen met een grote verscheidenheid aan muzikanten, maar af en toe wordt ze teruggetrokken naar de podia die alles betekenen en dat is maar goed ook, want zo leidt haar pad dit jaar naar Schöppingen.

Anne McCue

"McCue and co-producer Dusty Wakeman (Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam) give the album a welcome contemporary polish. That sheen shines even brighter thanks to McCue's virtuosity on guitar, whether she's slow-strumming a rhythm on "Things You Left Out in the Rain," finger-plucking a nylon-string solo on "Dig Two Graves" or riding a subtle slide on

"Long Tall Story" — her pickin' chops have garnered accolades from the likes of Lucinda Williams..." NASHVILLE SCENE

"... with references to Django Reinhardt, Billie Holiday and Gershwin, among others, this gorgeous album showcases McCue’s songwriting, torch-like vocals and brilliant, mostlyacoustic guitar mastery." ELMORE MAGAZINE

“I got inside the songs. The first chance I got, I went to see her perform . . . I was floored!”


“McCue’s virtuosity is no surprise, but the ease with which she’s absorbed and restated the beating heart of swing music is impressive and thrilling.” NO DEPRESSION

"... her own batch of standards on an album that sounds so authentic, you’ll be checking the credits to see which Tin Pan Alley tunesmith wrote them." LOS ANGELES MAGAZINE

"A true depiction of McCue’s Southern charm, the album shines with a genuine bluesy, folk rock sound... Perceivably effortless, McCue continued to impress with a mastering of both guitar and vocals and at one point retrieved a sliding guitar for the song “Hangman.”"


“You can’t go wrong with such talent.” DAVE ALVIN

"McCue uses swing elements and an elegiac New Orleans sensibility to create a cyclonic atmosphere, a controlled chaos of swirling guitar work and tempered horns resulting in an inferno of sound... Knock on wood, but Anne McCue’s time has arrived on what is her most realized album to date." THE SECOND DISC

"An Australian transplant currently calling Nashville home, Anne McCue took a musical detour on sixth album Blue Sky Thinkin’, a candidate for her strongest work ever. Known for her guitar prowess, she expands into jazz and swing in the style of Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian, adding horns and keyboards for color." AUSTIN CHRONICLE

The sublime @annemccue performing her passionate, humane songs at the 5 Spot in East Nashville, whilst giving a masterclass in the electric guitar. She’s so damn good, it a thrill to experience her close-up like this.” ROBYN HITCHCOCK

"Both the mood and the music lend themselves to imagery involving booze, bravado and bordellos, but McCue’s perky attitude and the colorful paintings that adorn the album’s cover suggest more of a mischievous intent." BLURT MAGAZINE

"I decided to make this album all pre-rock 'n' roll," McCue tells the Scene. "I love that era where jazz and blues started merging together and rock came out of it like a prodigal child."


"The sprightly album brims with toe-tap-inducing feel-good patina." NASHVILLE SCENE

“A wonderful songwriter, guitarist… You can hear her intricate and imaginative Aquarian guitar on my latest LP and of course, on her own albums.” ROBYN HITCHCOCK

“Tender and alluring.” DAVID OLNEY
