Chicago-based singer-songwriter and fiddle player Anne Harris has been crafting and evolving her unique sound for over a decade, producing five indie studio records and playing countless performances in the US and abroad.
Although it’s been reported that “Anne Harris plays violin like [Buddy] Guy wields his guitar,” (Orange County Register) and her recognition within the Blues community notwithstanding, she is decidedly not a straight-ahead Blues player. “I’m a true hybrid; I guess I’m a true American. I’m influenced by myriad genres,” Harris said. “To me, whatever particular kind of music we’re playing, whatever bin the music is supposed to fit in at the record store; it’s sort of a nebulous thing. Soul music is soul music, and that can come through a classical format, a blues format, a Celtic format, or a bluegrass format.” (Blues Music Magazine)
About Harris’ fifth studio album, ChicagoBlues.com says Come Hither is a “journey through a sonic landscape teeming with aural pleasure that beckons listeners to explore its secrets.”
