ANNEMARIE PICERNO - "Just Be Kind"
“Just Be Kind” Is an epic piano ballad that knows how to be truly expressive. Ranging from sentimental piano beds to momentous chorus’ with distorted guitars, this song has it all. There is a cinematic atmosphere present here; it would do so well in a movie. Annemarie's vocals are really unique with just the right amount of vibrato and a rich alto tone; they quiver with heartbreak and the performance is quite moving. "

Proving she is not one to be pigeon-holed, Annemarie Picerno merges blues, country, soul, rock and pop in her unique sound. Along with a provocative melody, ‘COLOR BLIND’ is controversially-insightful touching on areas of racism in modern society. The engaging lyricism can hit a nerve, but it is Annemarie’s sultry voice that really makes you sit up and take notice. Obscure in its tone and delivery, Annemarie elegantly exposes the uglier side of society. Smooth, but with a gritty intensity, ‘COLOR BLIND’ makes you sit back and question yourself.

BEHIND THE SONG
Interview with ANNEMARIE PICERNO
I have written dark lyrics that fool the listener with up tempo sounds in the music, songs with humor, as well as metaphorical lyrics in highly personal songs. The composition embodies all those messages and emotions in the story, and at times are written from another point of view of a character to show different perspectives in human character and experiences.

"COLOR BLIND" MUSIC REVIEW
Indie Spoonful Magazine Jan 22 2021
The lyrics in “Color Blind” use love, kindness, hate, and greed as metaphors to describe “human colors” as one’s outwards appearance does not reflect their value or being in this massive world. The lyrics emphasize the adage of not judging a book by its cover, and to dig deep and examine people’s hearts and minds instead. They also encourage us to love, make change through kindness, and accept diversity in our society. “Color Blind” by Annmarie Picerno is a well written and powerful song. The melody is highly memorable, and the lyrics are meaningful. The song’s blues rock groove, delivered by an A-level rhythm section sets the perfect stage for Picerno’s commanding vocals to shine and connect with listeners. Produced by Bob McGilpin, Picerno’s song is an example of music that is impactful and much needed in our lives.
