"Hers is a singular voice, both in its soaring resonance and in its poignant perspective, a rarity in a musical environment that champions teen queens and bitter babes..." Lee Zimmerman, GOLDMINE Indie Label Spotlight
"Her insights, instincts and “comments” on our world/society are fabulous. A significant talent in so many ways.”
J. Rollings, Herberger Theater
Annie Moscow is a contemporary poet, a hit songwriter (Sarah Vaughn, Sister Sledge, Mickey Mouse), part-time comedian and occasional philosopher. She brings a fresh perspective to subject matter not often sung about. Her very visual songs take the listener right into the picture, often cutting below comfort levels, expressing what others think but don't dare say. A riveting performer, Moscow commands the stage as she takes her audiences to unexpected places.
Originally from New York, she began her music career as a classical pianist, then as a songwriter, writing for film, television and other recording artists, including SARAH VAUGHN, SISTER SLEDGE and MICKEY MOUSE. In 1992, she wrote the lyrics to Kathy Sledge's hit single, "All of My Love". In 2007, she was a co-writer on Disney's top selling Halloween card "They Don't Scare Me".
In 2001, Annie Moscow stepped out as a solo artist with the release of her first CD, "Wolves At My Door", about the midlife shattering of illusions, of which THE WASHINGTON POST wrote: "Annie Moscow is rewriting the rules." Since then, Annie Moscow has released four solo CDs and written, produced and performed seven one-woman shows featuring her original music for the Herberger Theater, in Phoenix, Arizona.
Moscow has just released her fifth CD, "Passing Trains" (produced by the late JOHN JENNINGS of MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER), a collection of songs chronicling her emotional journey through divorce and her (now) ex-husband's gender transition.
