Grand Prize Drawing & New Rewards


THANK YOU for your fantastic support of our new album Grandine Il Vento!  

We have exceeded our initial goal, but every additional pledge dollar for our new album will be put to productive use in promotion, marketing and touring.  We have only three more weeks on Kickstarter; please continue to spread the word and watch for announcements about our upcoming fall tour.

To show our appreciation, we will extend an invitation to two backers (and a guest each) chosen by random drawing after funding of the project, to spend an afternoon in the recording studio with us, followed by dinner with Annie and Michael. Anyone who has made a pledge at any level will be eligible.  The winners will be contacted in early June to coordinate a date!


Annie's unique hand-painted guitar was one of the early pledge rewards claimed. Annie has agreed to create a second painted guitar as a pledge reward, for delivery in December.  It may be possible to paint a guitar that you own, but please read the caveats and requirements in the FAQ.

A new reward of an original commissioned 16x20” (40x50cm) painting by Annie who will personally telephone you to discuss your wishes and preferences. 

Executive Producer package for you: your photo in the CD booklet, dinner with Annie & Michael, four VIP Tickets and passes plus a shipload of other special honors and gifts.

A command Renaissance acoustic concert in your home plus an even larger shipload of special honors and dazzling gifts!!! 

Visit the project page and think of the possibilities.

      I saw Annie solo,at the Bottom Line. I saw two Renaissance concerts. I truly believe, Annie is like fine wine. Her voice is just as grandiose as ever. She is the best vocalist, barring none. Please keep on coming back to New York City
