Artist discography


This album is folk rock in its purest form. Just by listening to it you would probably guess that this girl was born and raised in the U.K.

This album sounds like the U.K. to me. It contains, acoustic guitars, banjos, violins, harmonicas and lap steel. It is a very traditional sounding album. I can imagine that this albums sounds good on a winter day in front of a fireplace with a Guinness in your hand and a loved one next to you. The songs are overall slow, and they sound very nice. It really sets you in a relaxed mood.

Annie has a nice voice that stands out from many others in this genre, which is always a good thing. It is a soothing voice that is very pleasant to listen to.

My beef with this album is that some of the songs are a bit forgettable, it is one of those situations where you listen to them but cannot recall them afterwards. The songs tend to blend together and it makes them lose their own character. However, this is a minor problem.

Overall, this is a pleasant surprise from an, to me, unknown artist. I am looking forward to what is to come in the future from Annie Crane. If you get the chance to listen, do not pass it up!
