ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Annie Gallup

Annie Gallup's writing is unabashedly imaginative and richly sensual. She is a teller of short, elaborate tales -- song-length works of fiction that sparkle with the complexity and polish of poetry; tightly packed lyrical strands that crackle with intelligence and spry wordplay, and pulse with insistent rhythm. Her musical instincts are a match for her pen - Annie is a gifted, inventive instrumentalist. Her guitar work is a fresh, welcome interplay of short lead runs and complex picking patterns. (As a teenager in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Annie learned to play listening to records by Doc Watson and blues great Mississippi John Hurt.)

Fusing elements of spoken word and poetry with sharp melodies and a trademark delivery, Annie Gallup has created her own musical sub-genre.

Annie's second album, Backbone, released in March 1996 on PRIME CD, was co-produced by David Lange and features a group of top Seattle musicians. It's a tribute to Annie's influences, but, even more, it's a beguiling assertion of an individual artistic voice, and a substantial step forward from her accomplished, largely self-produced first album, Cause and Effect, released in 1994 on her own Flyaway Hair label, and re-released by Prime CD in 1996. Backbone is more straight-forward and direct lyrically and musically.
