FAQs (and not-so-FAQs)

Why do you live in Minneapolis?
After spending seven years in Seattle, two years in Nashville, and five and a half in Denver, in 2015 I took a job in Minneapolis. I bought the cutest house in the world, straight out of Stars Hollow. I’m enjoying a lot about the Twin Cities, most of all the cheese curds.

Do you think you’ll always live in Minneapolis?
No. But I’ll be here until I’m not anymore.

What kind of dog is Foxy?
THE BEST. My guess is a mix of Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, and maybe a little Husky or Sheltie. She loves rotisserie chicken, and is terrified of kids.

Who are your favorite songwriters?
Patty Griffin, Lori McKennaGretchen Peters, and Sara Groves. Lots of others, too.

Where did you go to school?
I graduated from Montrose High School in Montrose, CO, in 2000 – and although Montrose was a fabulous place to grow up, I couldn’t wait to leave. I fled to the Pacific Northwest where I studied music at Seattle Pacific University. It is a useless degree. But I’m glad that I have it.

What do you do in your free time?
Read, write, run, walk, eat, travel, and wallow. In no particular order.

I’m new here. Where should I start?

What do you want in life?
For someone to make me chicken enchiladas.

How can I contact you?
Smoke signal, pigeon carrier, or Saint Bernard with a tube around its neck (my top choice). Or you can email annie@hootenannie.com.

Why “hootenannie”?
Because “goddess of light and beauty” is a little bit too accurate. It just felt so obvious, you know?
