Melonball Music Is Pleased To Announce It's Latest Release By Annie Moscow: PHOENIX: Songs Of Grace, Change And Acceptance

Online PR News – 09-July-2011 – – Melonball Records is pleased to announce it’s latest release, “PHOENIX” by alt/pop singer/songwriter, Annie Moscow.

Annie Moscow is a storyteller and her songs reflect her own interesting journey through life with passion and lyrics that everyone can relate to. A baby boomer artist, Moscow has been dubbed “a female Billy Joel”, with her songs and arrangements eliciting comparisons from Joni Mitchell to Meatloaf.

“PHOENIX” is a collection of 12 new, original songs, ranging from sassy to silly to the sublime.

On “Bed & Breakfast in New England”, (Track 5 - featuring trumpet player Greg Varlotta (Nils Lofgren), Moscow sings, “You can tell me that I’m beautiful/Make love and go away”). On her song, “Traveler” (track 9) Moscow expounds on the joys of living in the suburbs (“where the beds are warm and the floors are clean/and the dogs are fat and the lawns are green/we have the biggest stores you’re ever seen”). Or for serious chills, check out “Free Pass.”

The CD is produced by Rachael Gold, a producer, arranger, and touring musician, who has worked with a wide variety of recording artists over the past 30 years, including Sister Sledge, Donna Summer and Bernadette Peters.

Moscow and Gold have been collaborators for over 25 years, with a long list of songwriting credits from Sarah Vaughn to Sister Sledge to Mickey Mouse. In 1992, Moscow and Gold penned the hit song, “All of My Love” for Kathy Sledge, whose album went to #1 on the Billboard charts.
