Anne-Marie Sanderson is a British singer-songwriter, currently based in Portland, Oregon. Propelled by an inquisitive mind and a sense of adventure, Anne-Marie has charted the globe… sort of. From carving a niche for herself amidst the hustle and bustle of London’s folk scene, and busking her way through France, to yodeling for a spell in the Swiss Alps, she now finds herself in Portland, where people are quite friendly and seem to enjoy her strange accent as well as her songs.
Anne-Marie’s music has been described as “face-melting” and “mind-blowing”, with comparisons drawn to the vocal-stylings of some really swank female singer-types, among others. Employing several different alternate tunings and a self-taught finger picking style, Anne-Marie’s guitar playing is refreshingly unconventional, but good. Her songs paint pictures, reignite memories (before safely extinguishing them), ask questions, and occasionally answer them. Anne-Marie has been playing various venues around town in an effort to promote her growing collection of songs, some of which will be featured on her brand new EP ‘Eloquence’.
“…[Anne-Marie's] acoustic guitar pop is soothing, folk sensibilities seeping into the song’s very fabric to form a track so beautifully unassuming and humble and uncomplicated you cannot find fault. [...She is] a vocalist who is truly, undeniably comforting…” ~ Music Dissection
“…graceful and delicate.” ~ A New Band A Day
“Her song “Kane Cunningham (The Times That We Live In)” tells the story about a house purchased by UK artist Kane Cunningham, which is on the verge of falling off a cliff. While it may seem like a difficult topic to write, much less sing, about, Sanderson pulls it off with a stunning allure.” ~ Stereofox
