Anne Loree's song "Insensitive" was a breakthrough hit for Jann Arden, bringing her to the forefront of Canadian songwriting and earning her a Juno nomination.
Since then Anne has released four CDs, (Beyond Cinderella, RoAr, Mullet Years and Leaving Shadowland) performed several times at the EPCOR Engineered Air Songwriter's series in Calgary, the 2004 Alberta Sessions, at the Calgary and Winnipeg Folk Festivals and various workshops and songwriter showcases sponsored by Socan across Canada.
Anne's 2nd CD, Roar, is a broad cross section of 15 beautiful songs consisting of brave and insightful ballads and rockin' environmental and politically edged commentaries. Songs from Roar, such as "Money at Stake" and "Like a Hole in the Ozone" are still being played extensively on CBC (Richardson's Roundup), CKUA in Alberta, American and Canadian college radio and have charted on special programming. Anne herself was recently featured on Shelagh Rogers "Sounds Like Canada" on CBC AM for a piece she did on the Alberta Drought. Anne interviewed farmers in the northeast province and wrote a heartfelt song called "Diamonds on the Wasteland."
Whether in small clubs across Canada, or at festivals and showcases, Anne has a natural flare for connecting with her audience. Her live performances are always warm, witty and fun. She does a wonderful solo performance and often has talented musicians to back her up. Going back and forth on piano and guitar she delivers a unique and evocative sound through stylized vocals, smart arrangements and powerful lyrics. Anne also delivers her haunting rendition of "Insensitive." Just the way she wrote it.
