Anne-Marie Sanderson

Singer / Songwriter

It's taken me a while to process what's happened and what could happen as a result of November's election. For quite some time I, like so many others, was shocked beyond belief, lost for words, lost in despair. But sometimes inspiration and hope pop up from the unlikeliest of places. In her eloquent Golden Globe acceptance speech (the one where she slams Trump without ever saying his name), Meryl Streep quoted the immortal wisdom of Carrie Fisher: "Take your broken heart and make it into art." Such a simple turn of phrase, almost cliche, and yet it resonated so strongly with me. So, that's what I decided to do. This song and video are my response to Trump's inauguration and the looming shadow of his presidency.

One Song A Week, 2014

This is a project I undertook in an effort to get out of a creative rut.  These songs were each written and recorded in the space of a week during the Spring and Summer of 2014.  Although these are just demos, some will be re-recorded for future releases.
