As the 60th Annual GRAMMY® Awards get ready to make their return to NYC, NYC based Singer/Songwriter Annamaria is ready to kick off the celebration as she hits the red carpet for the 4th Annual Soirée at the world famous B.B. King Blues Club (237 W 42nd St, New York, NY)!
THE SOIREE is The Music Industry’s Annual Kick-off Gala during GRAMMY Weekend, and has quickly become one of the most anticipated leading annual music industry events. Bringing together Grammy Nominees and Winners, music industry executives, major labels, managers, producers, licensors, agents, celebrities and industry influencers – bringing the young star right in the center of celebration!
This year’s Honoree at the Gala will be famed singer/actress/advocate Dionne Warwick, who will be receiving the “Living Legend” Award. Past honorees and attendees have also included former Tour Manager to Elvis Presley – Joe Esposito, and Motown’s first A&R Executive, Singer/Songwriter and producer Mickey Stevenson!
The city has breathed new life, and taking center stage with poise beyond her years is 17yr old Annamaria!
The Singer/Songwriter has been honing her craft for as long as she can remember, saying “I always listened to music and wondered what my own words would sound like along with it. One day I finally sang and played along with a song on the radio…and I was hooked!”
Working with Emmy Award-winning producer/singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eren Cannata (son of Billy Joel saxophonist Richie Cannata), she has been writing and producing music – all original, radio-ready, and all immediately viable. Pairing the two was not coincidental, but a canny move by the young talent’s manager – John Casale. “I wanted a producer who’d be sensitive to Annamaria’s music and serve it well. Richie was the one, his experience and taste shows in every note.” Adds Cannata, “Eren and Annamaria have worked so well together. She’s the most prolific young artist we have worked with in years. She is on her way to great success in this industry!”.
With her latest release “Affection”, she’s begun sending out to the world her own brand of fresh new R&B and Soul laden pop music with a distinctly powerful vocal edge. “Kiss me, love me, like no one’s in the room // You miss me, you want me, then show me you do // Need your love and attention, all your affection” sings Annamaria in the sleek and passionate track the brings her smooth vocal tones to the forefront over a subtle yet powerful backing track.
Though she lists her favorite artists as Tori Kelly, Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Demi Lovato, and Christina Aguilera – her own music remains truly original. And with a full record release imminent along with groundwork being laid for her first tour, it won’t be long until Annamaria’s music is everywhere.
Now, as she gets ready to head to one of the biggest GRAMMY® Week events in NYC and continue connecting with the Music Industry’s best and brightest at the 4th Annual Soirée at B.B. King Blues Club, there seems to be a lot more in store for her as 2018 progresses.
