Amazing Ordinary Things Songs
This is an exceptional album which takes the listener on a voyage through textured guitars, unforgettable melodies and poetic lyrics. It speaks the language of amazing ordinary things. The album ranges from intimate songs with just Anne and her guitar to lush production with orchestra and band.
Anne has toured with Heart, Lucinda Williams, who described her as "my favorite new artist," Richard Thompson, Lowen & Navarro and Dave Alvin. You may have heard her songs on Dawson's Creek and UC Undercover.
Anne McCue is first and foremost a guitarist and has wide influences (see below) which all come into play on this album which was recorded in Melbourne, Australia and Los Angeles.
Musicians on the album include Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell), Greg Leisz (k.d. lang), Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra), Helen Mountford (My Friend the Chocolate Cake), Lowen & Navarro.
McCue plays all the guitars on this record, a must have album in your collection.
"I started recording the album on a shoestring budget in Melbourne. Tim Finn (Crowded House, Split Enz) had a studio in his house and we went in there and started recording. We recorded the cello in the living room. If you listen very closely you can hear the trams passing in the street. It was a great atmosphere there. Then I went to Vietnam for almost a year and when I returned I began the long process of completing the album. I ended up in Los Angeles where the final touches were done. I had a very clear idea about how all the songs should sound except 'Angel Inside' and that's where Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell) became involved. All in all, a wonderful experience."
