Praise for Blazing Red
“Here’s a singer-songwriter that allows herself to be ordinary at the same time she’s unafraid to find extraordinary moments. This is real life as plain chamber drama, the most familiar and yet still deep movements of our pathos rendered into gorgeous song.” – Chet Betz, Cokemachineglow.com

“Her latest in a series of superb, self-released albums, Blazing Red finds Boston-bred Anne Heaton offering a set of low-lit ballads that ring with a plaintive pull. With keyboards her primary focus, comparisons to Tori Amos and Fiona Apple become inevitable, but unlike her peers, Heaton’s expressions of dreams and desire never fall prey to self-pity or helpless circumstance, maintaining a focus on optimism.” – Performing Songwriter Magazine
