My new song, "Across The Aisle," is a call for unity in Congress, something I think most people can agree on. The lyrics are from the viewpoint of voters. The song is streaming at the top of this page. It's quick and easy to send a link to your senators and representatives. Here's a handy message to copy and paste in the email:
I'm one of your constituents. I think you should hear a new song because it's about you. Please visit www.anniedinerman.com

On March 13, 2019, we recorded "Across The Aisle" at Peter Bliss's Planet Studio in New York. I sang lead vocal and backups. Peter (whose songwriting credits include a cut by 'NSync) played keyboard and electric bass. Marie Gabrielle, who has toured with BB King, played acoustic guitar. Rex Benincasa, who plays in early music ensembles and Broadway orchestras, played cajon and hand percussion. Rex and Marie joined me on backup vocals. See my Blog page and Photos page for pics of the session.

Vivian Scott Chew
On Saturday, I worked backstage at Stern Auditorium in Carnegie Hall. The concert was “A Night of Inspiration,” produced by noted composer and music director, Ray Chew—along with his co-producer, Vivian Scott Chew. The aim of the concert was to provide uplifting music from diverse traditions, which is especially important in these turbulent times.

Annie wrote " Just A Little Tattoo" with longtime collaborator Arlon Bennett. She gave him socks that say BRO for Christmas. Annie refers to Arlon as Mr. Content, because he always comes up with wonderful, everyday details to make the lyrics ring true. Music and lyrics copyright A. Dinerman and A.
