My Own Backyard
For those of you who know Ann Klein, you know that she's been part of the NYC music scene for a long time now, having played with a list of all star artists (Kate Pierson, Joan Osborne, PM Dawn, etc). When she got a '52 reissue Fender Telecaster, something changed and she never turned back. Then she met producer/engineer Tim Hatfield (Keith Richards, The Damnwells, Eric 'Roscoe' Ambel...) That solidified her growing interest in the swamp twang thang and together they produced 'My Own Backyard'. 'My Own Backyard' boasts a touch of twang mixed in with Ann's NYC roots. Laced with lap steel, dobro, mandolin and Ann's signature guitar solos, 'My Own Backyard' is an Americana by way of NYC disc. Ann has been featured in national magazines such as Billboard and Relix and has toured in Europe every year for the last 8 years. She will be touring there again in February and November, 2005. She also is a sought after guitarist - having recently performed at Carnegie Hall in NYC as electric guitarist for the American Composer's Orchestra. Ann is also now producing other artists and is currently working with Sara Wendt, another cdbaby artist from NYC.
