Digging deep, “Minnesota’s heir to the Mavis Staples throne” (Star Tribune), embarks on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment taking the reins as songwriter and producer.
The soulful singer, powerhouse performer, and unflinching songwriter, Annie Mack, got her start by singing and performing at local music joints in the Twin Cities.
