Amplify Music 2/24

Come enjoy a fun, thought provoking and captivating evening as Annie Moscow, along with her trio, perform the songs from her newly released album, “Land of Dreams” (2/24).  

Originally from Philadelphia, Annie Moscow began her music career as a classical pianist and then a songwriter. Her credits include SARAH VAUGHN, SISTER SLEDGE and MICKEY MOUSE.  Since 2000, she has released six solo CDs, including “Passing Trains”, produced by Grammy nominated producer, the late John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter) rocketing to #20 on the Folk/DJ charts in February, 2017.  The songs of “Land of Dreams” were written during, and inspired by, the Covid years.  When the world went into lockdown, Moscow used that quiet time to create and reflect on a lifetime of twists and turns, lost loves, and lessons learned.  With a gift for cinematic storytelling, Moscow’s work often elicits comparisons to other pianist/cultural documentarians including Billy Joel, Laura Nyro, and Carole King.   

Wesley Skinner is currently completing a DMA from Arizona State University.   Wesley holds BM & MM degrees (emphasis in Cello Pedagogy) from the Cleveland Institute of Music where he studied with Melissa Kraut.  Wesley’s solo competition top prize wins include the Cleveland Institute of Music Concerto Competition, Paducah Symphony Young Artist Competition, Tennessee Cello Workshop, Lewisville Lake Symphony International String Competition, and the ASU Concerto Competition.  Wesley also served as founding member of the Laniakea String Quartet, which won first prize in The Sixth Hong Kong International Chamber Music Competition.

Sam Russo is a jazz drumset player from the Phoenix area. Under the direction of Dom Moio and Lewis Nash, he holds a Master’s Degree in Jazz Performance from Arizona State University. Sam has had the great privilege of performing with both Dick Oatts and Jim McNeely with the ASU Concert Jazz Band, as well as both Harold Mabern and Joel Frahm as a part of his ASU Jazz Combo. He’s also performed a number of times with Jane Monheit, Bruce Forman, Howard Alden, Gunhild Carling, Billy Stritch, Mike Kocour, Nick Manson, Eric Rasmussen, Jeff Libman and many others. He can be seen performing frequently around the Valley at an assortment of restaurants, jazz clubs and other events.
