Anne Weiss

Its little wonder that Anne Weiss is considered an outstanding multi-genre singer/songwriter. She studied classical piano, joined a street gang, became a mountaineer, developed a guitar obsession, worked as a political organizer, learned to salsa dance, became addicted to delta blues, sings with a 100 voice gospel choir, and recently started playing funk ukulele; and yes, you will hear it all in her music.

Combining contemporary folk, blues, acoustic funk, gospel music, and smatterings of classical phrasing and Latin rhythms, Anne is known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, and striking stage presence.

Annes first recording work was with Shawn Colvin and Patty Larkin. It wasnt long before she was opening concerts for Richie Havens and Dar Williams. A decade later, Anne has performed with everyone from power folk singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco to country blues heroes Cephas & Wiggins. She has toured internationally and has appeared at folk, blues, world music festivals, and week-long music workshops.

For many of her fans, Annes lyrics are ultimately what set her aside. Poetic, political, humorous, sensual, full of characters and stories, Weiss came to lyrics through her poetic craft. She has received the Allen Ginsberg Award for poems in her recently published poetry book, Making Paper From Leaves (2002).

Anne performs with equal ease as a soloist, with her unusual 5 piece funky-folk Feel This Band, or in duo or trio style with supporting musicians. Audiences are drawn to Weisss engaging, warm, spontaneous performances, her obvious joie de vivre, and her love of walking out on new musical and cultural edges.
