Ana Egge was born in Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada; and grew up in North Dakota and New Mexico. She began her music career in Austin, TX; at the age of 20 releasing her first album River Under The Road in 1997, recorded with the legendary western swing band, Asleep at the Wheel. Over the following years and 8 albums she worked with producers Martin Terefe, Jason Mercer, Joel Plaskett, Steve Earle, and Stewart Lerman. Her new album White Tiger, produced by Alec Spiegelman, is scheduled for release on June 8th, 2018 on StorySound Records.
“We were always the outsiders,” says Ana of her early roots in a small North Dakota town of 50 people. “I was taught how to shoot a gun and how to enjoy alfalfa sprouts and tofu, raised by two back-to-the-land hippies. My folks loved the outdoors and eccentric people; I ran around barefoot and learned to ride a motorcycle when I was 5. I grew up with all the time and space in the world.” Egge has since traded the openness of the American Plains for the untamable wilderness of New York City. She’s been around the horn of life’s experiences, having gotten married and become a mother, but that childhood spirit of freedom has matured.
