American singer, songwriter, violinist, recording artist and actress based in Chicago, Illinois. She has independently produced and released five studio albums on her record label, Rugged Road Records: Anne Harris, Open Your Doors, Wine and Poetry, Gravity and Faith, and Come Hither. A live album, Live at the Acorn Theater, was released in 2008. Her music has been described by various writers as incorporating a variety of influences, including traditional Celtic music, American folk-rock, Afrobeat, soul, and chamber music. For lack of a specific genre label, her work has been dubbed "conscious music" which refers to music and lyrics that have some basis in a spiritual, humanist philosophy.
