Some siblings fight. Some siblings compete. And some siblings join forces to create beautiful music. Oasis, Radiohead, and The National all include pairs of brothers, but the Annie Moses Band does them one up. It’s comprised of not two, not three but six siblings.
The Nashville-based group applies classically trained chops to roots, bluegrass, and the American songbook. The group’s latest, premiered below, is a smooth, warm, seasonally appropriate take on Gershwin classic “Summertime” from its upcoming American Rhapsody.
“When I was a little girl I loved to hear my mother sing it, so reinterpreting the song as the Annie Moses Band was something I had always wanted to do,” says lead vocalist Annie Wolaver Dupre. “The sultry sounds of our jazzy strings and vocals make the song sizzle like a long hot summer.”
So pour yourself a cold gin rickey, sit back, and enjoy the sounds of summertime.
