Eddie Owen Presents: Anne McCue w/ Becky Warren
Bluesy songstress and multi-instrumentalist Anne McCue has released her 6th studio album - "Blue Sky Thinkin'". McCue recorded and produced the album alongside Dusty Wakeman (Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam) in Los Angeles and Nashville. The album has been mastered by Ray Kennedy in Nashville. The album reunites the band from her critically acclaimed 'Roll' album and allows Anne to explore some of her favourite influences, including Billy Holiday, Howlin' Wolf, Memphis Minnie, Irving Berlin, Django Reinhardt, Hoagy Carmichael, Bessie Smith... Alternative Country icon Lucinda Williams has said of McCue: “Initially, her stunning voice hooked me in. Then I got inside the songs. The first chance I got, I went to see her perform . . . I was floored!" As heard on NPR’s All Things Considered, Nashville singer/songwriter Becky Warren’s debut solo album "War Surplus" relays the affecting, gritty and candid tale of the relationship between an Iraq-bound soldier named Scott and his girlfriend, June.. As the story unfolds, the two meet, fall in love, and struggle to hold it all together when he returns from his deployment a changed man living with the echoes of PTSD. From the record’s award-winning lead track “Call Me Sometime” straight through ‘til the last note, Warren’s potency as a songwriter is on full display, as she weaves a compelling musical narrative rooted in her own life experiences and the rich sounds of Americana and rock & roll.
