Music Bio for Ann Pascoe, New Zealand

Ann Pascoe is certainly an authentic country girl who was born on a back country sheep farm, milked cows after her marriage, and raised five children with her husband Ross, listening to country music of the day.

"About 1999 I started writing country songs and needed someone to sing them, but nobody seemed keen. I was told to sing them myself," she says. So she took singing lessons for two years and found she could sing quite well.

Since her 2001 debut she has produced seven albums: "The First Hello" named from her own composition recorded with local Taranaki musicans backing her.

"Misty Morning Memories" used music backing from Nashville, and the songs of Roy G. Ownbey, whose help and songs figured widely in Ann's new music life. And still do.

Her third album "On the Menu" in 2005 received excellent feed back world wide, the title track (her own composition) going to #5 on the European Country Music Assn. Top 100 and staying on the charts for weeks.

Ann's fourth album "I'm Doing Fine" takes it's title from another Ownbey song, and was chosen because Pascoe feels she is doing fine! Two duos with New Zealand legend Dennis Marsh are included on this album.

"Am I Blue" from the album reached #5 on the European Country Music Assn. charts and stayed in the Top 100 after 14 weeks being played by country radio stations around the world.

A fifth album "Somewhere Between Memories and Dreams" includes four of Pascoe's own compositions and compositions of American writer, Glen Erickson.

A carefully selected list of songs from Ann's past albums makes up "The Best of Ann Pascoe" album.

A cover songs album, "Country Sunshine" is the latest album covering songs like "Country Sunshine", "Apartment #9", "Cowboy Loving Night", "Anytime", "Bed of Roses" and eight other favourites.

Releasing her music with Hillcrest in Canada put her on the world map! "I’m more famous 'out there' than in New Zealand," says Pascoe who has been reviewed in a French music magazine "Review de Musiques Americaines", interviewed on radio and played on country music stations in France, UK, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Germany, Japan, Belgium, Malta, Norway, Sweden to name a few.

This month she has signed up with Rhonbob Promotions as a great way of promoting her music even more widely, throughout the world. "I figure my music deserves me to find the best ways of promoting it," says Ann.

At home with her band OLDOGS, Ann sings at concerts and festivals in New Zealand, and she has supported some American, Australian and New Zealand acts in various concerts and shows.

If you like sweet sounding vocals with pure Nashville country backing, you will enjoy all of Ann Pascoe's music.

About Me

DEANNA MITCHELL spent her life prepping to become a major country artist... but, she didn't know it until she took the stage with a band called Due West*. Born in Connecticut and raised in Missouri, Dee got her calling to country as a young girl courtesy of her parents vinyl collection. Thanks to many nights of seeing Robert and Florence cutting the rug to a CCR country groove Dee caught the bug.  After finishing school, she left home and led a gypsy’s life for more than a decade. From St. Louis to Calgary, Canada -- from Maine to Miami, Deanna sang -and lived - it all. Years of belting out the standards in ballrooms and rocking backwoods roadhouses helped to cultivate her incredible vocals. She had found her true talent but, lost her way in life. She almost gave up on trying to make it several times. Maybe the inner strength she tapped into as a cancer survivor helped her to keep on - keeping on. Or maybe that calling she had back in the day returned for a repeat engagement. One thing for sure -- it was music, country music - that helped her find her way -- and her way back home. Fast forward to 1997 and the last place on earth many people would mention in the same sentence with Country Music, Connecticut. But, what better a place to kick start the career of Deanna Mitchell. The missing ingredient was a band that could deliver the real thing. Then, along came Jeff and .Due West*. When Deanna teamed up with songwriter/guitarist Jeff Solomon and the Due West* band, things came full-circle she found her country groove. Deanna and the boys built a loyal following from down east  Maine to New Jersey, taking country's greatest hits to the next level with their faithful, yet Dee powered renditions.  For the past three years, Deanna has been a featured performer at the world famous Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville Connecticut (referred to as "Nashville of the north") in their "Wolf Den" venue.  Dee was doing 10 or more shows a season. With the release of her first and second CDs and now her new Nashville Cd, Deanna Mitchell is realizing her life dream. Quite simply, she's found her way home through her music, your music.
