Blue Sky Thinkin’ is the sixth studio album from the bluesy Sydney born singer-songwriter & guitarist Anne McCue from which we’ve chosen our Song of the Day. Spring Cleaning In The Wintertime that will hook you in from start to finish.
The album makes nods in the vintage direction of Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Peggy Lee, Hoagy Carmichael, Memphis Minnie and Cab Calloway. The most modern sounding McCue gets is on the ’50s-style roadhouse boogie of ‘Little White Cat‘ but the acoustic lean on the rest of the album doesn’t draw away from her prowess as a guitarist. Quite the opposite, as she explores jazz guitarist Charlie Christian on the title track and Django Reinhardt on ‘Dig Two Graves’.
This is an album you’ll want to check out and now UK fans have the chance to see McCue live as she returns to the UK after 5 years to make several appearances including Maverick Festival and London’s Green Note on July 9th. See dates below:
