Anne-Marie Sanderson is spending much of 2018 on the road for a bevy of solo dates around the UK and Europe. A native of Cumbria, having recently returned from several years of performing her music in the States, Sanderson is currently based in Stratford upon Avon.
Gentle but persistent, the stream of Sanderson's musical output carves an ever-deepening channel, determining its own path. Anne-Marie Sanderson's voice is evocative of birds in flight - soaring, gliding, swooping - and it finds its home among the tall trees of her deft guitar work. Describing Sanderson's distinctive indie-folk music in these terms is apt; she is an artist who casts a careful eye and attentive ear to the natural world, alternating between wide-eyed wonder and wry observation. As well as drawing from a host of musical influences, some of Sanderson's songs pay homage to literary greats; her new 'Book Songs Vol. 1' EP is a collection of songs inspired by authors including Robert Macfarlane, Barbara Kingsolver, and Doris Lessing.
“Anne-Marie Sanderson makes songs that ripple, peacefully, like circles in the water—full of gradual but unstoppable outward motion... delicate, but by no means flimsy, folk.”' - Ned Lannaman, The Portland Mercury
“...like a more symphonic Laura Veirs [...] Sumptuous.” - Higher Plain Music
“...confessional, literary folk... delicate and powerful at once...” - The Modern Folk Music of America
