About the Album

Master of a wealth of diverse styles and blessed with a rare talent for improvisation, Anne Lindsay brings all of her skill into fine focus on the 14 powerful tracks of her sophomore CD.

He Shoots, He Scores was composed in the stands of the Air Canada Centre in Toronto while Anne fiddled the Toronto Maple Leafs to one of their occasional victories. The Twisty Tune Set would sit comfortably in a Shelburne Fiddle contest in some parallel and slightly bent universe. There are echoes of Afro-pop, and elusive wisps of Finlandia inspired by Anne’s stint in the pit of the Lord of the Rings stage show.
 
Co-produced by Oliver Schroer, what sets News From Up the Street apart from her first CD is the addition of Anne’s heart-catching vocals. There’s a touch of retro jazz in Gershwin’s The Man I Love, a nod to the folk-jazz of Dan Hicks with the title track News From Up the Street, a rolling version of Ken William’s evocative Wichita Fog – but the gem of the album may well be the first of Anne’s lyrics to be captured on disc, Once I Was in Stockholm.
 
This magical song takes its melody from Andrew Downing’s tune Stockholm, and Anne’s exquisite lyric transports the listener across oceans into the heart of a yearning young lover. The violin has often been compared with the human voice; Anne’s voice certainly shares with her violin an ability to capture every nuance of emotion.
 
News From Up the Street marks a major step forward in Anne Lindsay’s remarkable career.
