Saskatchewan-born, Brooklyn-based folk troubadour Ana Egge isn’t your run-of-the-mill alternative-country singer. Using unique production and rock-based chord progressions, Egge has made a name for herself as a Gillian Welch figure with a rocker attitude, which once prompted Lucinda Williams to call her “the Nina Simone of folk.”Her upcoming 12-song record ‘Bad Blood,’ produced by ‘Treme’ star and country badass Steve Earle, gives new life to the folk genre, especially on the title track: Egge’s soft-spoken lyrics float lucidly beneath a driving bass-heavy beat, tremolo guitars and spastic and distorted slide guitar. -Cameron Matthews

Rolling Stone
Lucinda Williams once called her “a folk Nina Simone.” But Ana Egge is more country than that. Raised by hippies who grew wheat in North Dakota, the Brooklyn singer–songwriter crafts homespun hymns on her sixth disc to sing with your bare feet on the dashboard. “Bully of New York” recounts a sad late–night conversation between Egge and a park ranger whose hours broke up his marriage (best part: She met him while hitchhiking). Egge’s rootsy pedal–steel pop recalls singers like Shawn Colvin, but her sharply observed tales of the overlooked and underpaid feel utterly of the moment. *** Melissa Maerz

USA Today
Ana Egge, Lazy Days: * * * American idle- There have been concept albums about sensorily deprived children, the adventures of the singers’ grandmother, and even one about a man composing a concept album, but North Dakota singer Egge might well be the first with a tribute to indolence. However, a lot of care and effort was clearly devoted to these covers of Belle & Sebastian’s Summer Wastin’, The Kinks’ Sitting in the Midday Sun, Ron Sexsmith’s Wastin’ Time and more. Egge draws unsuspected depths from most tracks and pulls off the difficult feat of making a Sandy Denny song her own. -KEN BARNES

Austin Chronicle reviews
“River Under The Road”: Ana Egge is a walking divining rod. Some artists are like that-blessed with the necessary internal guages to read situations, people…maybe even the future. Something, that inner water rod, perhaps, or the insistence of bass legend and longtime friend Sarah Brown, brought Egge east from New Mexico to Austin to pusue something already deep within her. The result is River Under The Road, a debut masterpiece worthy of a songwriter decades worldlier than this mere 20-year-old soul.
