Annie Humphrey


United States

Annie Humphrey is an Ojibwe mother, singer, songwriter and visual artist who was born and raised on the Leech Lake Reservation in Northern Minnesota.

Annie's music career began out of pure necessity. With two young children to care for, she began performing at coffee houses and local events. Over the years her songwriting has focused on a specific theme with a message to "Be brave and have a good journey."

Her first recording, The Heron Smiled, won her national recognition as Female Artist of the Year and Best Folk Recording at the 2000 Native American Music Awards. In 2004, her second recording, Edge of America was released. The title track from this recording was later featured on Chris Eyre's film Edge of America.

Prior to her career as a musician, performer and recording artist with Makoche' Recording Company, Annie also studied painting and sculpture.

Today Annie has three children and is happily married to her husband Mark (also a former Marine). Annie continues to write music and perform, while also pursuing her art career. Her special interest is Turtle Heart, a group she founded that works with youth in her community to promote positive lifestyle choices.

Edge of America

Artist - Author: 
Annie Humphrey

Another great cd from Annie. If you are tired of the mindless music that you find in the middle of America, try the Edge of America. No mindless drivel here. Real mindspeak for those who still have a mind to think with. A little darker than her last one but an inspiring five star release. Support her music and buy one.

This CD is simply one of the purest, honest and beautiful collections of music I have heard in many years. Spirit Horses w/John Trudell is my favorite, with 500 Years in close second. Annie has a beautiful voice.
