A solo recording made with Gary Paczosa in Nashville. It includes several re-recorded songs that are up to ten years old; some from Hadestown (recorded in Anaïs’ own voice for the first time); and a few new songs that have never been recorded before. AM says “If the title were longer, it would be dear audience, thank you for everything"

Now You Know - from "xoa"

On this album, Anaïs teams up with collaborator Jefferson Hamer to co-arrange old English and Scottish folk ballads from the Francis James Child collection. The recording, which was produced in Nashville by Gary Paczosa, is an intimate one, featuring a lot of close harmony and two-acoustic-guitar arrangements. AM says: “We never once put on headphones in the studio”

This is a split EP Anaïs made with her good friend and fellow songwriter Rachel Ries.

They recorded the basic tracks in one session at Hi-N-Dry in Boston, MA with the rhythm section of the Session Americana band.
