Welcome

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

My singing style?  Scott Shriner, of Record Publishing Co. puts it best.

…"
DeChant doesn’t sound like Sheryl Crow. She doesn’t sound like the Indigo Girls, or the Dixie Chicks, or any of the other acts I’ve heard her likened to. She’s a woman with her own distinct voice, her own unmistakable style. She sounds like Anne E. DeChant. And nobody — nobody — sounds like Anne E. DeChant as well as she does. 

My performance style?  The Cleveland Plain Dealer puts it best..

…"Now there's a woman with a fire in her belly"

 My writing style?  I'll give that to 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.   There's also the occasional 'silly love song'!  So come on in, traipse around a bit, listen to some tunes, check out my blog for the latest news and revelations (they are vast. Ha!), pick up a t-shirt, a hat, or download my CDs.  And please find a joint where you can come hear me live.   I'm glad you're here.  If I could offer you a cold beer (not a virtual one cause that's as useless as an O'Douls) I would!  


You're beautiful. Rock On!

Anne E.

Brrrrrr!  Coming to you from a snowsuit in windy, snow covered Ontario!

Good morning and Merry Christmas!  Ha!  I know a lot of you cannot stand the cold and snow but I must say I love it!  It has always given me a sense of well-being, like the Tonight Show or Modern Family....Maybe it's memories of the snowy winters of the 1970's and waking up on my own (not my mom's voice or at 7am) knowing that school had been cancelled once again.  That has to be one of THE BEST feelings ever!  Can I get an Amen?  I'm… Read more
