seven secrets

Anne Marie released her CD, “Seven Secrets,” in late November 2009. Her third disc continues her lyrical and melodic style of songwriting, as well as collaborations with her producer and fellow songwriter and instrumentalist, Dick Neal. The CD boasts a number of musicians performing in ensemble style, including Neal himself, Jordan Jancz, Scott Lebish, Mark Mirando, Katie Wilson, Larry Deming, Shellye Valauskas, Vic Steffens, Armand Morgan, John Redgate and Bob Csugie.

Recorded at Neal's Circle Sound in Stratford, Ct. and at Horizon Music Group, West Haven, CT, the CD tracks feature a small band as well as acoustic arrangements. The songs range from contemporary folk tunes to innocent pop rockers, all featuring Anne Marie's warm vocals. Her songs touch on the usual themes of love, life, and loss, but they deliver the listener to the not-so-usual place of recognition and solace.

anne marie menta

Anne Marie Menta hails from New Haven, CT., where she has been a long time favorite singer/songwriter. She comes from a family of three brothers, where playing and listening to music was their great passion. Her musical credits include fronting various rock & roll, folk, and country bands as a singer/guitarist, including The Wanderers, Sugar Moon, Sky Riders, and Rodeo Radio. In the mid 90s, she decided to concentrate on her own original music, and those tunes of hers that she “snuck” into her cover band repertoire now became her main focus. But, the country, folk, and pop music that she loved continued to be an influence in her writing.

Anne Marie's first two CDs of original music, “Untried & True” and “When the Love Ran Deep” were released in 1999 and 2004 to enthusiastic reviews and gained airplay throughout New England acoustic music programs. She has been a featured performer at the Eli Whitney Folk Festival in New Haven, CT. and opened for artists such as Richard Shindell, The Kennedys, and Eddie from Ohio. She was a finalist in the 2004 South Florida Folk Festival Singer/Songwriter competition, and a showcase artist at NERFA (New England Regional Folk Alliance.)
