Anne Sumner in session for Roots & Fusion

2 November 2016 by Pure Radio

Every now & then, a regular listener & friend of the show will say to me, “Have you heard…?”

Such was the case when listener Mark Flanagan advised me to listen to the music of Anne Sumner.

Anne’s incredible voice and gorgeous songwriting grabbed me straight away.

Based in Croyden, Anne came up to the Roots & Fusion studio especially to record a session – and I’m so pleased she did.

She recorded 5 songs and then we had a bit of a chat – all recorded by Roots & Fusion’s sound engineer, Aaron Hixon.

1) Anywhere With You
2) Swim Any Sea
3) Renegades
4) These Hours
5) Water’s Edge
