Anne Loo is a solo female vocalist based out of Houston, TX. Though known for many years for her unique vocal stylings, this is her first solo debut. For those who like music in the vein of Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams or Rickie Lee Jones, or even stuff that doesn't seem to fit in this genre, like Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach's collaboration, "Painted From Memory,"--Anne's influences and chops are all over the map, but the one consistency is the gorgeousness of her voice--she can switch vocal stylings effortlessly, and does so throughout the album.
Playing in her band is Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright's drummer, as well as Spoon's original keyboardist. She even managed to recruit veteran producer Dan Workman (Lyle Lovett, Beyonce, Enrique Iglesias, Clay Walker of Smashmouth) to both produce the album, as well as play in the band. So backed by such a stellar line up, she's free to focus on her main instrument, her beautiful voice. One moment she can be growling out a tune like Lucinda Williams, the next moment it's a gorgeous jazzy ballad ala Norah Jones. Her music is quite original so it was very difficult to pick a genre as she literally and willfully crosses genres continuously on this album.
The title is perfect. This is great music to listen to on a rainy day, or any time you just are feeling mellow, and want to fill the space with mellow beauty. Highly recommended, and I even managed to snag an advance, so we get it before it hits the stores!
No reviews to post since this is an advance, when the album is released I'll try to update this torrent page with relevant reviews!
