For 25 years she was a member of Saffire-The Uppity Blues Women. Ann has toured all over the world solo, with Saffire, and with piano legend Erwin Heifer. In 2009, Ann received her ninth nomination for a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) as Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year. In 2008 she was nominated for Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year; her first solo album, Music Makiri Mama, was nominated for Album of the Year in both the Traditional Blues and Acoustic Blues categories; and her composition "Elevator Man" was nominated for Song of the Year.
