Awesome Aussie — Anne McCue — Tackles Tin Pan Alley Sound with Latest Album
This Editon of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” originally aired on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 17th @ 6pm CST
This installment of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” featured as musical guest — Nashville singer/songwriter/guitarist ANNE McCUE.
The native Australian artist who now calls Nashville her home, is perhaps best known for delivering raucous Americana blues-rock with a distinct ‘50s roadhouse groove. But her latest album, “Blue Sky Thinkin’,” finds McCue forging a jazzy new musical path influenced by Tin Pan Alley.
McCue chatted about her musical journey in life while the show maintained a strong focus on the music of “Blue Sky Thinkin’,” her long-awaited follow up to her acclaimed 2010’s guitar-focused “Broken Promise” CD.
Plenty of songs from McCue’s new CD are spotlighted on this program, including her tasty duet with Dave Alvin (of The Blasters) on the tune “Devil in the Middle.”
