2002 Kerrville New Folk Festival winner Annie Mosher is purely enchanting. Her waving red pigtails and infectious grin spare no one, leaving her audience entirely captivated and delightfully bewildered. She laughs and stomps her feet while she sings of red panties and drugstore perfume, she blushes and finds her listeners gently as she whispers of the woman whose 'masterpiece thighs' stole her lover's heart. She quotes the chilling threats of the snake-handling preacher and drinks his strychnine, she pounds on the kudzu-covered door of a lost love. Annie's passion for performance fills this record, you can hear her life force. It is no wonder she is a Nashville favorite, packing the clubs night after night playing alone with her guitar or with her small ensemble of powerhouse musicians or with the infamous Girls With Guitars. She is a road-loving artist through and through, and her songs remain painful, beautiful, entirely different from anything else in the minds and hearts of her listeners. Nobody's Child is a masterpiece not to be missed. From her lost truckers to the sad eyes of gone-but-not-forgotten Nashville has-beens to the slot machine cross-dressers, Annie will paint images that linger. She is a rising star, those who cross her path instantly recognize this and are charmed and endeared by her music. Enjoy her, she is priceless.
