Thank you for stopping by.  You've reached the stomping grounds of Singer/Songwriter, Anne E. DeChant whose writing is best described with praise from Nashville's Scene Magazine

... "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.”

It ain't all trailers and tornados though.   There are a few pick up trucks and girls and airplanes too along with the occasional 'silly love song'!  So traipse around a bit, listen to some tunes, check out Anne E.'s blog for the latest news and revelations, pick up some swag, and find a joint where you can to go see Anne E. live.   We're glad you're here.  If we could we'd offer you a cold beer (not a virtual one cause that's as useless as an O'Douls) we would!  



GG9 Opening Ceremonies 

How much fun it was to come home to such a welcoming family!  We loved being at the start of something great, for our community and for the larger Cleveland-Akron community as well.

Enjoy AWESOME friends! Thanks Greg's Automotive (Nashville TN) for having such cool trucks and cars for me to dream about. 

What a great week/weekend. It's all about the music 

I'm always amazed how great it feels to sing songs I've written, enjoy the great talent of the people I work with and connect with the beautiful people who give me the time of day and let me tell them some of my stories through music.  It truly is THE universal language!  

Thanks to all of you who came out to Natalie's in Columbus to hear me introduce some of my new material and get my sea legs so to speak.  Loved hearing RJ Cowdery and J. Scott Franklin (check them both out!).  

An awesome night at THe Barking Spider.  A night like Friday (the 13th nonetheless)  is my life in music at its very best.  You don't need a stadium. You don't need thousands of dollars.  You need to connect  with your music and your music with the people sitting in front of you.  Then we all connect and for me, that's living in the moment.  That's a nice place to be.  I am grateful

House Concert on June 14th?  Awesome.  

Duck Tape Fest?  Awesome 2!  We'll be back.

Today, a little book work and then an evening with my dad fishing on Lake Erie.  Gorgeous night.  No Walleye but oh what a wonderful sky!

Can't wait for this week's line up beginning Thursday at The Akron Art Museum and finishing at The AVon Lake United Church of Christ, helping to raise funds to support the  "New Horizons" service youth band,  

See you all soon!
Anne E.

Friday hang with sunshine 

Just enjoying a great day in East Nashville, working out on the back porch.  My good neighbor Chris Austin got me hooked up with Instagram. Now I can be a post junkie.  Also, you may start seeing film footage from my shows compliments of GoPro.  You'll have backstage access and on stage access for Indigo Girls show in August.  Can't wait.  Chris, you're awesome.
