Hello and thank you for stopping by.  You've reached the stomping grounds of me, Singer/Songwriter, Anne E. DeChant.  

"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

"There's virtue in honesty, and in intuition, and in openess, and in tough-minded decency.  Those things may or may not make for fine art.  In the hands, heart, and voice of Anne E. DeChant, they may, they might, and they do."
-Peter Cooper, editor, Country Music Hall of Fame

“'Fly Away' is so poignant and well written it ought to be a huge country hit for someone."

           -Cool Cleveland, Anastasia Pantsios
