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

Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign, Get an advanced copy of new CD!!!!

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.

Carlos Carrasco, this week's shows, one day left Indiegogo 

  Wow!  Last night I watched Carlos Carrasco come within one pitch of a no-hitter tonight as The Cleveland Indians took on the Tampa Bay Rays.  What a great performance.  And at the games close, after he missed the no-hitter, he was smiling ear to ear.  I suppose that attitude is what makes him great....pitch by pitch, moment by moment, enjoying the good.  It was… Read more

Award-winning Nashville songwriter Anne E. DeChant teams with Alabama author Frye Gaillard for “Watermelon Wine: The Poetry of Southern Music,” a unique program of reading and song. In his award-winning book, Watermelon Wine, Gaillard maintains that great songwriters, like DeChant, explore the depths of the human heart with all the subtlety and feeling of our finest novelists and poets. Gaillard will present brief readings from his works, setting the literary context for Anne E.’s all-acoustic rendition of her songs. DeChant and Gaillard have appeared together at such diverse venues as Belmont University, Kimbro’s Pickin’ Parlor in Franklin, TN, the University of South Alabama, Satori Coffee House in Mobile, AL, the Barking Spider in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Lakewood (Ohio) Public Library.
