Anne Elise Hastings and Her Revolving Cast of Characters is a New Orleans based alt-
country band. Anne Elise carries her characters with powerful vocals and lyrically driven music,
retaining her Appalaichian roots while embracing her adopted city sensibility. With inspirations
ranging from Dolly Parton to Janis Joplin, listeners are exposed to feelings of anger, nostalgia,
and heartbreak backed with compelling musical arrangements.
Unmasking a Confidence Trickster, the band’s sophomore album, has the twang and attitude of old school country, but introduces a more modern edge that demonstrates their broad scope of influences. This album shows a vast range in emotion and tone.
