SKOPE MAGAZINE REVIEW ON HOMESTEAD VOL THREE on BONGO BOY RECORDS
" Deft storytelling comes into the fray on Annemarie Picerno’s rollicking “Discount Tobacco and Beer”. Guitars weave together further adding to the song’s inherent honesty. Rushing through with such force the piece has a commanding, bluesy presence."

REVIEW IN INDIE SPOONFUL MAGAZINE
" Annemarie Picerno’s upbeat and fun “Discount Tobacco and Beer.” Changing things up, a fat and funky walking bass starts the track. Slick electric guitar riffs and solos add a bluesy vibe. Jamming plucked instrumentation is the icing on this multi-genre cake. Annemarie has a powerful, expressive voice that delivers the gut and groove that this rockin’ country song is made of. Towards the end, she lets loose with an impressive scat-like vocalise that gives the song a live feel. Annemarie is the kind of artist who can combine country, blues, folk, and rock and impress every single genre fan in the house."

REVIEW IN "PLEASE PASS THE INDIE MAGAZINE"
Annemarie Picerno’s “Bonfire" feat. Lisa Coppola, Jimmy Parker, Donna Jo, Steve Owen, Benny Pitsinger, Gene DiPierro and Bob McGilpin. Bonfire is an Americana gem that paints the stories we tell around the bonfire. The song opens with a combination of plucked and strummed instrumentation. Cleverly written, the melody is passed around the bonfire as multiple singers sing a line of the song and then sing together in unison. In true Americana fashion, you are taken away to a moment when friends tell their stories and each voice is unique. At one moment, the singing is layered like a round like fashion. In "Bonfire", you can hear the “heat sparks” fly lyrically and musically.
"Country vibes return for the wonderful collection of voices featured on Annemarie Picerno’s BONFIRE – a power ballad with a mighty sense of togetherness about it."
SKOPE MAGAZINE Feb 2019
"Annemarie Picerno goes for a folksy singer-songwriter tradition on the powerful “Bonfire feat. Lisa Coppola, Jimmy Parker, Donna Jo, Steve Owen, Benny Pitsinger, Gene DiPierro and Bob McGilpin”. Emphasizing a sense of togetherness, the way the vocals trade off makes the song akin to a conversation. With just the right arrangement it all feels truly honest and tender to its very core."
