Annie Capps

 

continued

Annie's live performances also benefit from the percussion and vocal work of Christine Schinker. Schinker's easy rhythm on hand drums fills in the empty spaces unobtrusively. But her most valuable contribution is her voice - she has a great ear for warm harmonies and blends her own bright and clear tone beautifully with Capps's.

For all her efforts to get you thinking, Capps also knows how to poke fun at her own genre - and at the sometimes painful life in a working band at local bars and parties. The wryly titled "Cerebral," though a bit of a novelty tune, may be the highlight of the CD: "Don't try appealing to my sensitive side / Don't try to raise up my unconsciousness . . . 'Cause I just came here to have a beer. . . . I just came here to have a drink / And I don't wanna have to think."

Annie Capps is at Crazy Wisdom on Saturday, August 30.    (end of article)
