Album Notes
Ann Walton is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has been honing her craft for years. Growing up she wrote poetry and listened to old jazz greats like Sarah Vaughan, and her good ear meant picking out melodies on her parent's old upright piano.

Since she first took the stage in her home town of Winnipeg, fans have been captivated by Walton's seemingly effortless piano playing and her original poetry set to song.

Since releasing her debut album in August '07, Ann has graced stages from Vancouver to Toronto and has performed at a variety of conferences and showcases. She has also recently shared stages with Mark Berube, Danny Michel and Steve Forbert among others.

"Ann Walton is the sort of performer who comes along and causes people like me to go over-the-top crazy with praise. Playing cabaret-infused piano ballads and waltzes, and singing in a quiet, almost slurred drawl, Walton is an immediately arresting singer/songwriter who backs up her unique sound with plenty of substance. Her lyrical imagery is precise, well-considered and wonderfully off-kilter (the album's closing song is a paean to CBC TV correspondent Brian Stewart) and her songs emerge here as fully realized entities, replete with standup bass, brushed snare, occasional accordion and deliberately distressed, old-tyme sonics. Hearing this album is as exciting as discovering Jane Siberry, Mary Margaret O'Hara or Veda Hille for the first time".
