Description

Amy LaVere has been compared to a rootsier, more dangerous Norah Jones. This album delivers ten smart and sexy tales of spooky love, twangy ache, sultry torch and gutsy blues that is totally unpredictable and relentlessly daring, the sound of an uncommon artist unafraid to be exactly who she is. For the singer-songwriter that The Chicago Tribune describes as "a Southern girl thumping a doghouse bass bigger than she is and singing in a woozy, whispery voice that casts an intoxicating spell," Anchors & Anvils refuses to be weighed down by easy expectations. Her talent doesn't end there. She's had small acting parts in big movies, playing Wanda Jackson in "Walk The Line" and a part in "Black Snake Moan", but music is her first love. Jim Dickinson (Aretha Franklin, Rolling Stones, Ry Cooder and Bob Dylan) says "As a producer, you take the artist out to the edge of the cliff, where they have to learn to trust you. And of course, you push 'em off. A lot of them fall. But Amy has wings to fly. In fact, I think it's one of the best records I've ever made".
