商品説明

When Anne McCue proclaims, 'I've gotta roll' on the title track from her Messenger Records debut, Roll, her urgency and conviction are telling: here is an artist who has been on an extraordinary journey and lived to tell the tale. McCue's musical path commenced during her childhood in Sydney, Australia. The last of eight children born to a milkman and a nurse, she absorbed the runoff of the inevitably diverse musical tastes of her huge family. Naturally the Beatles rated, but she also fell for French composer Eric Satie and crooner of the dark side, Nick Cave. Although an immediate and profound element in her upbringing, music trailed on her career choice list (behind novelist, film maker and marathon runner), and eventually she graduated from the Sydney University of Technology with a degree in Film Production and Film Studies. Of course, some things are just meant to be. When her brother brought home a $70 Gibson SG copy, it resonated with innumerable possibilities. 'That guitar was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen,' she confesses. She surreptitiously strummed it for years, but when her father passed away, McCue grabbed it and made for Melbourne. 'When he died, it made me realize life is kinda short,' she says. 'I made a list of things I wanted to do. The first one was to play in a rock band.' She wound up as lead guitarist of acclaimed Aussie Power pop group, Girl Monstar, which garnered an ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Award) nomination for Best Independent Release. The Monstar ran it's course and McCue began frequenting local blues jams. She was offered a gig in Vietnam for three months and ended up staying a year, playing six nights a week, covering many different genres including power rock, jazz, blues and alternative-country. Upon returning to Melbourne, she commenced recording her solo debut, Amazing Ordinary Things, at Tim Finn's (Crowded House) Periscope Studios. Before the album was complete, McCue joined Eden a.k.a., an acoustic rock band signed to Columbia Records. They were brought to the U.S. to record and tour, including stints on the 1998 and 1999 Lilith Fair. When that ended, McCue stayed in L.A. and leapt back into completing Amazing Ordinary Things, which eventually was released in Canada and most recently in Japan. While touring to back up the album, McCue wowed crowds and acquired fans in high places. She played constantly including shows with Dave Alvin, Richard Thompson, and Lucinda Williams, who would become her biggest champion. Williams took McCue on the road throughout 2002, praised her at every chance referring to her as 'my new favorite artist... and an amazing guitarist,' and honored her with inclusion on the Lucinda Williams: Artist's Choice compilation CD, in the esteemed company of John Coltrane, Leonard Cohen, Patty Griffin, Paul Westerberg, and Ryan Adams. Soon, she was selling out her own shows and released Anne McCue Live: Ballad of An Outlaw Woman, a solo recording from The Fillmore in San Francisco, one of the stops on the Williams tour. A startling contrast to Amazing Ordinary Things' pop sheen, Ballad... distilled McCue's talents - prodigious songwriting skill and guitar witchcraft - into their true, ethereal essence. The spirit continues with Roll. Produced by McCue and bassist Dusty Wakeman (Lucinda, Dwight Yoakam) at Mad Dog Studios in Burbank, Roll is McCue fortified by a rock solid Texan rhythm section of Wakeman and drummer Dave Raven. 'The whole idea was to get back to a three-piece band in the studio,' McCue explains, citing such favorite trios as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Police, and The Jam. 'I like that people triangle, and I wanted to record like that: guitar-bass-drums. That way we get as much of a live feel as possible. Later we overdubbed some B3, accordion and guitars where necessary.' 'But basically it's just me, a bass player, and a drummer,' she enthuses. 'I got my Les Paul out and we were just having a rockin' good time. I love the freedom of being the only chordal and lead instrument. There's so much room to improvise, jam and ge
