Annemarie Picerno has released 4 singles from SONGS FROM NASHVILLE, all written and composed by her experiences in Music City. The tracks are notably unique, and incorporate grassroots Americana, country, folk, and Annemarie’s unique deep bluesy vocal stylings. Each note carefully crafted with Nashville producer Bob McGilpin, her voice intertwines with the sounds of steel guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, and emotionally charged lyrics.
After the successful first cut “RAIN” in 2017, a country blues mix with soaring acoustic imagery still playing across the globe, Annemarie released “I DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS” crying with the dark angst of love, mixing lyrical moods of Tammy Wynette, K.d. Lang, and Roy Orbison in her distinctive romantic performance. Both songs hit indie radio Top 40 charts in 2017 along with garnering Josie Music Awards Nominations in Modern & Traditional Country and Female Mixed Genre Artist. She then undertook a large group project inviting other indie artist to join her on another indie chart success “BONFIRE” This inspiring composition features indie artists: Annemarie Picerno, Lisa Coppola, Jimmy Parker, Donna Jo, Benny Pitsinger, and Steve Owen. Producer: Bob McGilpin/ Co-writer Gene Dipierro. An Americana group number with a global message to bring people together, the song describes passions in life and music, and the burning desire to build a community in love and traditions through people coming together in unity. Throughout history, nations have blazed bonfires through wars, festivals, celebrations, and the letting go of past regrets, to build new hope for a bright future. The soaring melody intertwines harmonies by award winning independent artists championing music and peace to heal the world. The song is also signed with Bongo Boy Records and being distributed across Asia and Europe.
Her most recent release in February 2018, “CLOSER” the 4th track, incorporates elements of various acoustic American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, pop and bluegrass resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound.
