Anne McCue’s come a long way since her days with Girl Monstar, a Sydney band who enjoyed some success in the early 90’s.   Moving to the US after a stint in Vietnam, she’s established herself as a solo artist and jobbing musician, with heavy-hitting fans – including Lucinda Williams – spreading the word.  Like Williams she mostly does a line in gritty, sexy blues-rock, and on Broken Promise Land she marks out a diverse, if occasionally quirky, stylistic territory that sets her apart from the average Nashville songbird,  Her default singing style is a relaxed smoulder, and her guitar playing – the main even here – is something else.  McCue’s a terrific soloist: fiery, inventive and fluid, with a droning experimental streak that betrays her indie roots.  She has a real gift for matching a loose, funky riff to a song.   City Hub

Broken Promise Land was released in Sept 2010

Anne has a new album out, her 6th –  BLUE SKY THINKIN’


“I’ve been a fan of guitarist/singer/songwriter Annie McCue for many years so I’m very honored and happy about singing with her on a damn fine song for her upcoming album. You can’t go wrong with such talent.” – Dave Alvin
