Anne McCue Band

Anne McCue Band

Anne McCueANNE McCUE’S NEW ALBUM, BROKEN PROMISE LAND, RETURNS TO THE RAW SOUND OF HER CRITICALLY APPLAUDED ‘ROLL’ AND ‘KOALA MOTEL’
Recorded in Nashville, the album features the rhythm section of Ken Coomer (Uncle Tupelo/Wilco) & Bones Hillman (Midnight Oil).
McCue describes her new album as “a bit dirty, a bit rockin’, a bit swampy and a bit bluesy, with a touch of mysteriousness to it.”

THE PRESS LOVES IT:
"McCue has delivered an exceptional album..." if magazine

"... Anne McCue, whose new CD is grittier and more alive than what is being released by most male rockers these days...." thepromiselive.com

"...emblematic of the persona she carries throughout this blistering, exhilarating ride." Alternate Root

On "Broken Promise Land," McCue displays her grittier side and flashes her six-string chops with dirty-toned, blues-edged rockers such as "Don't Go to Texas (Without Me)," the title song, and Rose Tattoo's "Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw." With her dusky alto, however, McCue also remains a spellbinder when she shifts gears, from the horn-kissed rock-and-soul of "Cruisin' Paradise (Tenerife)" to the atmospheric, vibes-accented "Motorcycle Dream," and the seductively slithering "The Old Man's Talkin'." Philadelphia Inquirer

"stratospheric guitar work, whisky-soaked voice and songs crackling with classic intensity and modern energy define Broken Promise Land as a prime example of raw & dirty Blues Rock in the new millennium" Cincinnati City Beat

"McCue shows a grit and resolve that makes "Broken Promise Land" a delight. As impressive as she is as a folk artist, it's playing hard-drivin' blues rock where McCue seems most at home." Pittsburg Daily News

"Australian singer-songwriter Anne McCue's latest is her strongest to date. McCue captures the vibe of blues musician Albert King while maintaining her own style - a hybrid of blues, rock and swamp music. Broken Promise Land also showcases McCue's exceptional guitar skills."Don't Go To Texas (Without Me)" harkens back to the dirty guitar sounds of the Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds. The title track cuts loose with a Hendrix-like bluesy guitar solo. Her strong songwriting ability is evident" Elmore Magazine
