New Album – Blue Sky Thinkin’

World Tour 2015 Dates Announced

The new album from Anne McCue Blue Sky Thinkin’ will be released February 10 on Flying Machine Records.

Expat. Australian bluesy songstress and multi-instrumentalist Anne McCue has just recorded her sixth studio album with co-producer Dusty Wakeman (Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam) in Los Angeles.  The album has been mastered by Ray Kennedy in Nashville and reunites the band from her excellent Roll album (2003) and allows Anne to explore some of her favourite influences, including Billy Holiday, Charlie Christian, Howlin’ Wolf, Albert King, Nick Drake, Astor Piazzola, Peggy Lee and Bessie Smith.

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!”

The Blue Sky Thinkin’ World Tour begins Thursday February 5 in Washington DC.  A great singer, songwriter and guitarist.  I’ve seen her live at least four times and I am excited at the idea of catching her again, either in Australia in June this year and/or hopefully in Nashville around the Americana festival in September.  Go see her if she comes your way!
