Her 5th recording, "Girls and Airplanes" was released in 2007 and her latest, "Swing", November 2011.
Nashville Scene writes....
” there are moments on Swing when her songs, enriched by her political consciousness, nail blue-collar grit in a way few writers do, like her stellar mid-tempo country number “Home To Me,” which zeroes in on the perspective of a teenage girl whose family lost their trailer in a tornado.”
Anne is a 5-time winner of Cleveland's Best Singer Songwriter award (Cleveland's Scene Magazine), and 2007 inductee into The Cleveland Free Times Magazine's All Star Musician Category.
She has performed at Lilith Fair, The White House, The Bluebird Cafe, opened for Nora Jones, Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Train, Vonda Shepard, 10,000 Maniacs, and Guster, to name a few.

DeChant is a standout delivering brilliant performances from her long list of poignant, melodic songs. Anne's format stretches from solo/acoustic, acoustic duo and trio to full band performances. Each one is a unique experience offering her audience and venues a performance tailor made. She is a storyteller, creating characters as diverse as the landscapes in which she paints them.
