Anne E. DeChant


The Grit & Soul of Today's Americana Music

Standout storyteller delivering brilliant performances


Why you should see this show…

Anne E. DeChant was a pretty big fish in the Northeast Ohio pond when she was part of the indie group Odd Girl Out. But while her musical journey may have begun here in Cleveland, Anne E. DeChant’s superior songwriting skills only took on more depth when she moved to Nashville. Whether her subject is addiction, bullying, or a lost cat, DeChant spins her stories with humanity and heart, and sings with a kind of energy and grace that nobody who has listened to her music will forget. “She is what the future of Americana music needs to be in order to endure – a passionate prophetess who has come in from the wild, rough edges intact, and ready to rock.”  – No Depression

Anne E. DeChant Bio
Anne E. DeChant is an award-winning Nashville recording artist originally from Cleveland, Ohio where she was a five-time Singer-Songwriter of the Year. She has shared the stage with such well-known performers as Stevie Nicks, Nora Jones, Joan Armatrading, Sheryl Crow and the Indigo Girls, and has played venues ranging from the Clinton White House to such storied listening rooms as Nashville’s Bluebird Café, Moonlight on the Mountain in Birmingham, the Evening Muse in Charlotte, Kimbro’s in Franklin, TN, and Frog Pond in Silver Hill, AL.

Anne E.’s song ͞”Girls and Airplanes,” about women breaking down barriers, has been featured on the soundtrack of the Hollywood film ͞The Hot Flashes starring Brooke Shields, and the critically acclaimed documentary film, ͞The Vetters: All We Needed. DeChant’s 100% fan-funded studio album, The Sun Coming In, produced by Nashville guitarist Mike Severs, recently reached number 6 on the Roots Music Report’s national chart, and the CD’s first single, ͞”Sunday Morning Drive,” reached number one. Three of the songs on the album were co-written by DeChant and award-winning Southern author Frye Gaillard, whose books include Watermelon Wine: Remembering the Golden Years of Country Music. For the past two years, Gaillard and DeChant have presented unique concert-readings entitled ͞”Watermelon Wine and the Poetry of Americana Music” at a wide array of venues including colleges and universities, listening rooms, public libraries, and arts centers in Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Ohio, and the Carolinas, among other locations.

“DeChant is our wake-up call to all the possibilities found in songs and stories when they’re told with integrity, honesty and heart. She is what the future of Americana music needs to be,” writes No Depression. “Her songs, enriched by her political consciousness, nail blue-collar grit the way few writers do,” concludes Nashville Scene magazine. And the Cleveland Plain Dealer adds “Now there’s a woman with fire in her belly.” Before beginning her solo career, DeChant was lead singer for the popular rock-Americana band, Odd Girl Out, based in Cleveland.
