“There is no one like Anne Schaefer , she truly is a one of a kind talent that will take you on a fabulous journey with her haunting and colorful melodies, and brilliant lyrics. Her newest album, The Waiting Room, is a beautiful insight into Anne's playful imagination and her musical virtuosity.” – Joby Baker - Producer, Engineer, Musician
Nominated for Album of the Year, 2012 (VIMA) and generously funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, “The Waiting Room” is a concept collection of songs that sing the internal dialogues and personal sound tacks of a number of colorful characters sitting in a waiting room. Each character sits and waits for change. All are suffering from the human condition.
Recorded with award - winning producer, Joby Baker (Alex Cuba, The Bills, The Cowboy Junkies, Mae Moore) and fleshed out with a stellar lineup of musicians including, Kevin Fox, Scott White, Kelby MacNayr and Adrian Dolan, “The Waiting Room” is a near theatrical ride that takes listeners through the absurdity, loneliness, passion and piss-off’s of life and everything in between. From Dinah, who imagines herself as the superheroine, Black Canary and little Lily who wistfully wishes she could walk through walls and meet some aliens, to Beth who poignantly remembers a lost lover and Jacob who is shocked at the realization that his is suddenly very old even though he still feels like a boy, “The Waiting Room” seems to touch virtually everyone with it’s wit, wisdom, grace and grandeur.
