NIGHT OUT - Bob McGilpin & Annemarie Picerno
Review by Dave Franklin - Dancing About Architecture June 2022
Annemarie Picerno is an expert at working with established music traditions and alchemically turning them into something both fresh and yet familiar for the modern audience. This time out, alongside Bob McGilpin, she takes country twangs, cool blues licks and folky lilts and turns them into a neo-roots sound for the modern age.

LA NOTE - MAY 2022
"I am extremely versatile in musical styles, and my voice can be sensitive, raspy, bluesy, and powerful. Most people are surprised when I sing on stage as my voice is full and rich. They are also shocked because I may be very quiet before a performance as I mentally prepare and focus my energy. Sometimes I go for a character and interpretation that changes the flavor of the vocal, and shows the attitude of the perspective of the character singing. My theater and acting training I have been incorporating in to my musical performances and music videos, and it creates a vocal quality that comes across with imagery in the studio and live. There are no boundaries in what I sing about either."
DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE- by Dave Franklin
I Thank God For This Moment is a country song with a gospel makeover, or perhaps vice versa. All that matters is that they take everything that makes both those genres cool, throw in a handful of sassy blues vibes and a slightly funky, wandering bassline and come out the other side with a gorgeous song.
And, as great as the music is, it is the two voices that dominate. Both have an impressive set of lungs on them, their individual deliveries certainly make you stop in your tracks but when they harmonise on the choruses it reaches something altogether otherworldly. If there was a choir of angels that specialised in bluesy harmonies and gospel gorgeousness, then Annemarie Picerno and Matt Barfield would be their leading lights.

"PLEASE PASS THE INDIE" MUSIC REVIEW DEC 2020
MR SANTA - ANNEMARIE PICERNO
“Mr Santa” packs a punch that delivers holiday cheer by way of a truckload of gritty swing. A seriously killer band and a track produced by Bob McGilpin, puts everything right where it should be to underscore Picerno’s stylish and classically cool vocal delivery. A holiday song with lots of swagger is always a treat, and “Mr Santa” serves up a red hot groove and a catchy chorus that will have you singing along.
