The Living Room Nomadic:
JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN + ANNI ROSSI
Jennifer Gilson presents The Living Room Nomadic—a series of live, intimate performances featuring singer/songwriters and artists with a unique point of view.
In this segment, Joan Wasser aka Joan as Police Woman, and emerging singer/songwriter Anni Rossi perform a few of their most emotive hits. Join these two classically-trained musicians as they discuss “where ideas come from”, life on the road, and how they write their powerful works.
Annie Rossi is a multi-instrumental sound artist, whose album Rockwell was created with legendary producer Steve Albini at Electrical Audio studios in Chicago. Known for blending the traditional with the avant guard—utilizing everything from custom instruments to the electric viola—she has toured with Scottish indie-electronic act Camera Obscura, the Ting Tings and Headlights.
Joan, who began her career playing the violin at just 8, has toured with such illustrious acts as Antony and the Johnstons, Lou Reed, and The Scissor Sisters. Her work has been described as “Punk Rock R&B,” shifting through numerous genres (and instruments!) and making her a true chameleon of sound.
