Take the Wheel
Somewhere along the way, between her beginnings in Boston, her travels on the road and her eventual landing in New York City, Annie Keating developed a sound - passionate music and intimate songs - tough and tender. Having grown up in Boston and learned to play guitar at age 13, Keating honed her craft at the Underground club in Providence, Rhode Island. An activist and musician, she moved to New York City in 1992 playing music at night and advocating for civil liberties and reproductive rights during the day. Keating's first album, the High Dive, got airplay on more than 100 radio stations in the U. S., Canada, Belgium and England, while earning critical praise from the Village Voice, Discovering Artists.com, CD Baby, and more. Keating's second release, Take the Wheel, is songwriting at it's purest. Keating doesn't dance around issues or waste time wondering - she takes the wheel. No frills or posturing - her sultry voice cuts straight to the heart. Through her journeys, she writes songs that take US places well worth visiting.
