Ann Meadows is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and percussionist whose musical range encompasses blues, folk, rhythm and blues, pop, and country rock.
Ann was born in Jacksonville, Fla. but her Bohemian style parents quickly relocated to North Carolina where Ann grew up steeped in traditional Carolina styles of music. Ann’s Aunt Edna traveled, sang and recorded with the famous Arthur “Guitar Boogie” Smith, lending ideas and dreams of music to Ann in her early teens. Ann’s desire for music quickly developed with classical, opera, and creative vocal classes in high school. With this under her belt Ann's musical creativity, culminated her into a sensitive songstress, committed to her songwriting craft. Ann’s vocal range is on a wide scale. Ranging from the low down blues to the heartfelt melodies of her originals, her vocal prowess is sure to please. The personal depth of her stories and melodic interpretation, speak volumes of her years of experience as a seasoned singer songwriter. Her writing is musically intriguing as well as faith based and offers traditional family values. As an Americana artist, Ann has captured the true essence of roots songwriting, performing and style. She maintains her unique sound on the acoustic 12 string guitar accompanying her heartfelt crystalline vocals.
Ann’s accolades include opening for Doc Watson’s 20 year side kick- Jack Lawrence, Jim Avett -father of the famous Avett Brothers, and flat top picker Tommy Edwards; all well known North Carolina natives. She has shared the stage with many North Carolina musicians and is currently playing along with the National Recording Blues Guitarist/Producer Tommy McCoy promoting her new CD. Ann has been a finalist in the Carolina Country Music Festival’s choice for Battle of the Bands, and also a finalist in the Country Music Showdown’s songwriting contest.
Whether alone with 12 string guitar or on stage with a full band; Ann Meadows gives a part of herself and her songs will stay with you, in your mind and in your heart. Ann believes that music comes from everything. The wind, the sun on your face, the rushing tide, or the heartbreak that sometimes comes with this wonderful life we have been given. Ann believes music, along with love, can heal anything.
Ann has come full circle musically, with her diverse new CD release "Good Ole Caroline." Her sound stands alone on integrity and merit, now complimented by International artist and producer Tommy McCoy. The full sound of additional instrumentation has rounded out Ann's songs and completes her new CD as an incredible selection of Ann's original songs as well as one by Tommy.
Ann’s new singles, “This Love”, “Sunday Dinner” and “My Sweet Vivian” are already receiving air time.

Influences & Inspiration
Anything from Jimmy Rogers singing his way out of prison to Ruth Brown singing the Blues. Wilma Burgess singing country to Adele singing pop. Robert Johnson at the crossroad to Gary Clark. Of course, Janis Joplin and modern day Lucinda Williams, David Rawlings and Gillian Wlech, Bonnie Raitt, and one of my favorite songwriters Mr. John Prine.
You name it! All music is wonderful and can influence your style and writing.
