Ann Blair considers herself a storyteller, after one listen of her all original release of Wanted You To Know, there should be no argument, she is! The songs are all original songs written solely by Blair, they are honest mini-stories with a lesson in each. Not only are the words honest, so is the voice. There is nothing studio engineered about that. One would never guess that Blair grew up 15 minutes from our nation’s capital in Virginia, with songs such as Daddy’s Car and Love you, By the way. Discovering her voice at the young age of eight years old, then her gift for writing at 15, along with an enormous ability for acting, she was considered a triple threat.

Blair has performed in Nashville, Las Vegas and DC. In 2005, she was on the Washington DC leg of the Mamapalooza Tour; she also performed the National Anthem for the Washington Nationals to over 38,000 attendees. Blair has established herself not only as a songwriter but also as a publisher with ASCAP. Blair airs on 20 + Internet radio stations across the country including Americana Rhythm Radio, Rockabilly Radio and Whole Wheat Radio and gaining recognition rapidly. She has been reviewed by Relix Magazine, European Correspondent Phil Demetrion writing, "Ann Blair displays a deep understanding of how to shape a song into a powerful message that is at once meaningful and emotionally accessible. In addition to the strength of her writing, Ann's vocal chops are impeccable." As well as critiqued by #1 Songwriter Jason Blume (Brittney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Oakridge Boys), saying “I can find nothing wrong with your writing ability you do everything the way you should, your vocals have clarity and you possess something different.” “You are a hit maker, you will go far.”

Her preview album of “Wanted You To Know..” entitled “No Regrets”, earned her a 2004 Washington Area Music Association nomination, she was nominated yet again for the 2006 awards in the category of Female Country Vocalist. “I love stories of life, true stories that hold lessons or messages, writing songs and performing them is just my way of sending the message and hoping that something can be learned or harvested from them, whether it sparks hope in someone or it creates a fire it has done its job. I have a personal quote “if you have regrets, no lesson was learned.” It is evident throughout Blair’s music she has learned the lessons, and she “Wanted You To Know….”
