The path has been wonderfully winding for Anne Janelle, a classically-trained cellist turned singer-songwriter. She has finally found her calling: making and performing songs steeped in the Anglo-folk and roots traditions. She is also known for her inventive arrangements of traditional folk songs and carols. “Anne plays her cello like Paul McCartney picks his Hoffner,” (Roots Music Canada) while her “gorgeous syrupy voice” (Acoustic Magazine) gives the heart strings of her listeners a gentle pull.
“Inventive, entertaining, beautifully written and brilliantly performed” (R2), Anne's album output includes two duo albums with long-time collaborator (and husband) James Hill, three solo full-length albums and four singles. She has won a Canadian Folk Music Award and has toured in over a dozen countries, a full-time performer since 2012. She lives with her husband and 5-year-old son in a tiny town in Nova Scotia, Canada.
