"Annie is a captivating singer. She delivers a lyric like it was a cherished bedtime story; as comfortable as your favorite sweater; as truthful as well, I can't think of anything that honest. Her band mates, Peter Davis, Jonny Rosen, and Don Young, are first and foremost accomplished, serious musicians" according to Joel Moss, Producer, Managra Music, Saratoga Springs, NY in his review of the groups' new CD, Total Indulgence.
