It’s not often that you are fortunate enough to hear truly interesting music these days. Now don’t get me wrong, I love bass thumping, hard hitting, aggressive rap just as much as the next guy, er girl in my case. But every now and then I want a quiet guitar and soul stirring voice to reach down deep and still the noise of the world just a bit.
And in walks Annalise Curtin. Don’t let her tiny stature fool you. At under 5′ feet tall, and a disarmingly youthful face that makes you wonder if she’s reached voting age, this young woman is a powerhouse of a performer. Armed with a guitar that seems gigantically disporportioned in her arms, Annalise’s melodic songs are something akin to Damien Rice meets Feist with a touch of young Bob Dylan. Her guitar sings, her songwriting thought provoking, and her voice absolutely one of kind.
You can catch Annalise most Monday nights at World Cafe’s open mike nights, or check out her website for upcoming dates.
