Whiskey Drawn by anna vogelzang published on 2011/08/01 18:31:30 +0000 "The Wisconsin troubadour has a penchant for playfulness when it comes to her music; however, when she gets serious, few craft a better folk song." - The Huffington Post Anna Vogelzang, unavoidably soulful singer/songwriter and newly-transplanted Midwesterner sings the best kind of songs, the ones about feelings. Her latest full-length venture, Canary in a Coal Mine, was created completely through fan funding and is being independently released on September 20, 2011. Amongst the album's cast of professional musicians are Brian Viglione (the Dresden Dolls) on drums, Todd Sickafoose (Righteous Babe) on upright bass, Franz Nicolay (the Hold Steady) on accordion, & Emily Hope Price (Pearl & the Beard) on cello. Featuring up-beat, robust crowd-favorites "Die Trying" and "Heart Beat Faster", the album has also been called Vogelzang's riskiest venture to date, toting sweet love songs on kalimba & ukulele, a girl group stomp-and-clap summery singalong, a rip roaring barroom bluegrass tune, banjo dirges of pining sincerity, and a haunting piece featuring only a cello quintet and voice. Anna will be touring nationally in the fall of 2011 in support this new project.
