My new music

"I'm very proud of Big Words, as I feel the music is a spawn of many hours in my basement studio editing, re-editing- and- although the songs have come out of a very difficult time in my life, I feel them transcending me to the next phase of my journey. Songs are like that. Plus!- it sounds great on my car stereo!"

Try out a couple of tunes below!

"Those who only know Anne Loree as the author of Jann Arden's mega-hit Insensitive are missing out on a profound body of wit and wisdom from one of Canada's finest songwriters. Loree has a unique ability to distill intensely personal observations into profound universal truths and insights while wrapping them up in catchy, hook-laden packages. Her meticulously crafted lyrics and melodies prop up robust beauty with a delicate strength and an ever-present sense of humour. Any of her live appearances will confirm this." MD Stewart

The CD is produced in part by Jann Arden's guitarist, Russell Broom, with guest performances by James Keelaghan and Tariq.
