Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Crooked Path is the stunning debut from Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs. At only 21, the alt-country songstress plays well beyond her years. She's even prompted homeboy Mark Pickerel to declare: I believe she'll be Ellensburg's most valuable export since Screaming Trees. (Screaming Trees, of course, being his former band.) Star - full name Star Anna Constantia Krogstie - began playing drums at age 11 as a way to bang out her ADHD energy. In high school, she played drums for the punk band, No Continuous Standing. But the summer she was 16, Star started teaching herself guitar and began writing songs. From that time on, she's been finding her voice, developing her sound, finding what suits her. It's a sound with longing, heartache and simple sincerity in the same vein as Lucinda Williams and Neko Case - and it can make grown men cry. Crooked Path Features an early incarnation of the band with Corey Dosch on lead guitar and Orville Johnson on lap steel and banjo, but the sound, songs and singular voice are pure Star Anna. The band's first single If Wishes Were Horses with it's video currently making the rounds on CMT's Pure Country. Also of note is the second track, Black Cat Blues, featuring the great Wayne Horvitz on the Hammond organ.

Review

A doe-eyed, haunting honky-tonk siren, Star Anna is a captivating singer-songwriter with a tough-girl exterior and raw emotions. At only 21, the alt-country songstress plays well beyond her years. She's even prompted homeboy Mark Pickerel to declare: I believe she'll be Ellensburg's most valuable export since Screaming Trees. (Screaming Trees, of course, being his former band.) Star - full name Star Anna Constantia Krogstie - began playing drums at age 11 as a way to bang out her ADHD energy. In high school, she played drums for the punk band, No Continuous Standing, who were OK, for yelling, says Star's mom, Mona. But the summer she was 16, Star started teaching herself guitar and began writing songs. From that time on, she's been finding her voice, developing her sound, finding what suits her. It's a sound with longing, heartache and simple sincerity in the same vein as Lucinda Williams and Neko Case - and it can make grown men cry, says Mona. It's gut music, notes the supportive mom. In the summer 2006, Star was joined by longtime family friend Frank Johnson on bass, then drummer Travis Yost and Guitarist Corey Dosch. Together, they were Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs. However, Corey recently relocated to the East Coast. Luckily, longtime Ellensburg/Seattle guitar phenomenon Justin Davis has stepped in to fill out the Laughing Dogs pack. The band recently signed to the newly established Seattle indie label Malamute Records. And while Star is at least 10 years younger than her band mates, there's no intimidation factor. She considers them her music-making peers, and they feel the same way: That's half of it, of making an artistic project, is the chemistry, says Travis, 34, a Yakima native. Yeah, we've found a really good something, adds Star. --Kim Nowacki, On Magazine

A musical soul-mate for those late and lonely nights, a voice so intoxicating that it might just eliminate any real desire to find a true love. --Mark Pickerel (Screaming Trees)

All in all, this may be the best debut album of 2008. --Americana UK
