The best kept secret in music


"Willamette Week"

“Portland powerhouse Anne Weiss, with her vocal flights suggesting a cross between Aretha Franklin and Joni Mitchell, bluesy acoustic chops hinting that Bonnie Raitt could have been a frequent visitor to the house, & poetic lyrics that likewise transcend generic limitations, is like three singer-songwriters in one.” - Jeff Rosenberg

"Burlington Free Press"

“A stunning voice”. - Paul Kaza

"KZSC Radio, Santa Cruz, CA."

“Her voice is rich and powerful, and yet it can be quiet, soft and clear, too. A lot of passion and soul...her songwriting is what excites me the most, though. The way she can say so much with such beautiful simplicity is what makes these songs really stand out.” - Jeff Emery
