"One Star on the Rise"

On her latest CD One Star Night Anne Carol sings with the sweet voice of an angelwho’s as comfortable with the depths and the darkness as with the realms of light.Her lyrics are mystical, invoking the elements and the four directions, finding power and
transformation in the earth. You could call this collection a love song to the earth—even when she’s singing suggestive lyrics in a breathy voice you’re never quite sure if she’s singing to a lover or having an ecstatic elemental encounter.
Anne Carol weaves the songs on One Star Night from seasons passing into millennia and
molecules spanning into distant stars, finding those connections in even the most mundane moments. The listener is invited to enter a dreamtime awareness of shapeshifting time and space, alive and humming with awareness at every level.
Musically the CD has an ear-pleasing variety, with some pieces having upbeat, almost danceable rhythms and others slow and haunting. Violins lend a sweetness that is counterbalanced with grinding electric guitar and a few underworld minor chords. At
times Carol intertwines melodious spoken word with flawlessly sung vocals, creating enticing layers of sound. One of my favorite new singer/songwriters. Anne Carol’s one star is definitely on the rise.

Anne, who makes her home in Sebastopol, CA studied Women's Spirituality along with songwriting, vocal arts and experimental performance in San Francisco. Anne's music and multi-media productions invoke the unique powers of the expressive arts to alter and raise the consciousness of both participants and spectators. Anne's voice, words and music whether sung in a listening room, spoken at a street performance or woven into a ritual create a bridge for the listener into the tender heart of her subject matter.
The vision of her music is one of reawakening the intrinsic link humans share with Nature and with one another through evocative music. From activist outcries to seductive melodies, her music invokes courage and is a well of renewal.

Anne is currently collaborating on a CD with renowned Lesbian-Feminist poet Judy Grahn. Anne has performed her music at the San Francisco Earth Charter Summit, as well as various peace concerts and rallies in the Bay Area. She tours nationally and works with artists from around the world.

Some Anne's past projects include the multi-media performance Chasing Polaris, the ritualistic musical production Songs for Sagrada, and being a co-founder/ director of the Evergreen State College showcase of women artists Visionary Voices.
