Star Anna

Wow. Just saw this new music video for "Alone in this Together" from Star Anna & the Laughing Dogs from Washington. They’ve just released their third album in July from Local 638 Records. With her weathered and tortured voice highlighting the simplicity yet powerful melodies of their songs, it’s not surprising Star Anna’s music have gotten the rave reviews from music critics and by artists such as Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Duff McKagan of Guns ‘n’ Roses. It looks as though Star Anna & the Laughing Dogs set off for another tour tomorrow. SoCal will get a chance to see them when they arrive for a few dates in Los Angeles when they play Sept. 16th at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach and Molly Malones here in Hollywood on Sept. 17th. Can’t wait.

Star Anna's bio excerpt from official site:
"When a woman shuts up hundreds of people with her voice, it's a powerful thing. Star Anna--her given name--has been steadily wowing audiences and accumulating a rabid and dedicated fan base (including canonized musicians like the folks in Pearl Jam and Guns & Roses) since she was discovered busking outside a café in Ellensburg, Washington at age 16. She is whip-smart. She is street-smart. She is a private person who unhinges her jaw to release a voice that has punched many Pacific Northwesterners in the face over the past several years—a voice that brings to the table an authentic pain and strength that defies her 25 years."
