Album Notes
"Anne's talent for singing is obvious on her CDs. Anne has a special "other" talent. She successfully helps others explore and develop their musical talent too. She does this by creating a secure and enthusiastic space for her students to explore the world of voice.

- Brian Mahon, vocal student

This instructional vocal warm up and eartraining CD was made in response to the hundreds of students who have requested it. Anyone can learn to sing, or sing better--they just need the tools and some support. This instructional CD provides both.

Artist Information

It’s little wonder that Anne Weiss is described as unique. She studied classical piano, joined a street gang, became a mountaineer, developed a guitar obsession, worked as a political organizer, learned to salsa dance, and became addicted to delta blues; and yes, you will hear it all in her music.

Combining contemporary folk, blues, acoustic funk, gospel music, and smatterings of classical phrasing and Latin rhythms, Anne is known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, and striking stage presence.

Anne’s first recording work was with Shawn Colvin and Patty Larkin. It wasn’t long before she was opening concerts for Richie Havens and Dar Williams. A decade later, Anne has performed with everyone from power folk singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco to country blues heroes Cephas & Wiggins. She has toured internationally and has appeared at folk, blues, world music festivals, and week-long music workshops.

For many of her fans, Anne’s lyrics are ultimately what set her aside. Poetic, political, humorous, sensual, full of characters and stories, Weiss came to lyrics through her poetic craft. She has received the Allen Ginsberg Award for poems in her recently published poetry book, Making Paper From Leaves (2002).

Anne performs with equal ease as a soloist, with her unusual 5 piece funky-folk “Feel This Band”, or in duo or trio style with supporting musicians. Audiences are drawn to Weiss’ engaging, warm, spontaneous performances, her obvious joie de vivre, and her love of walking out on new musical and cultural edges.
