The Cape Cod Sound -  Love Never Dies by Anne Stott
May 13, 2015

A very different approach can be found on this new CD by Provincetown street performer Anne Stott. Listeners of a certain age will feel like they are being transported through their 1990s youth in her combination of indie-rock of that time with the 1980s alternative sound, especially in Stott's vocal phrasing, which recalls those of 10,000 Maniacs' Natalie Merchant. But in addition to this, Stott brings an earnestness to her songs that recalls 1960s folk rock, with a call to action tone, even as she speaks of very individual, human emotions. If you've seen/heard Stott singing and playing on Commercial Street, you'll recognize the emotional depth of her songwriting, which is elevated by strong production values on the CD. Stott also brought in other Cape musicians, such as Bruce Abbott (saxophone and flue) and Cerise Bynoe (background vocals) to fill out her sound. annestott.com.
