The influences of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton can be discerned in her solo debut, and Country Music People ranked “Life, Death, and the Spaces Between” third on a Best Albums of 2015 list, dubbing Annette Conlon “a major talent” who “created a moving, intimate, magical melodic country trip.”

Conlon is currently working with three-time Grammy winner Alf Rodenas on her second album, a “folkier, sweeter, darker” effort that she promises “delves even deeper into my human heart.” In September, the passionate animal rights advocate and vegan performed in Nashville during the annual Americana Music Association conference before launching her Compassionette Tour, which wound through Alabama and North Carolina, before landing at Chicago Veganmania’s “compassionate culture” celebration.
