“It's never too late to start to live your dreams.”
— Anne-Marie Lax from the song "Never Too Late"
Anne-Marie Lax, of SpiritDancer Music, is a Singer Songwriter from the mountains of New Mexico. A consummate performer, she is equally adept at both rocking your socks off and soothing your soul with her mellow folk and blues tunes, all underlined with positive, inspirational and encouraging themes. For this spiritual composer, song writing inspiration has come from a voracious reading habit, love of nature, her life-long spiritual practice and a deep fascination with observation of the human spirit. With her warm velvet voice, Anne-Marie’s vocal style has been described as a blend of Joni Mitchell, Grace Slick and Mary Chapin-Carpenter.
In May of 2012 she began recording her debut CD “Dancing in the Light”. This inspiring CD was released in February of 2016 and has been recognized by winning an Empower Posi Music award for Best Video of 2015 (Choose Love) and being nominated for 3 - 2016 New Mexico Music Awards for Best Jazz Song (Coming Home), Best Blues Song (Nothin’ to be Blue about Blues) and Best Pop album.
“Dancing in the Light” has received glowing reviews in the June 2016 issue of Albuquerque The Magazine by local music critic Mel Minter. Anne-Marie’s songs have received regular internet airplay on Women of Substance Radio and Podcast. If you’re in New Mexico, you can catch one of Anne-Marie’s performances as a regular guest soloist at the Unity Spiritual Center in Albuquerque and at the Second Saturday Community Coffeehouse in Edgewood.
