SAC Challenge – Week 5

So I’m a bit late on the draw here but I very recently noticed an interesting songwriting challenge through the S.A.C. (Songwriters Association of Canada)  Here is my submission for week 5. The song is all about the darker shades of the mind and of love…The quest for finding peace within dreams and within life.  The darkness that comes with the light.

I thought that one of the songs from ‘Shades of Red’ might work well for the challenge!  Please check it out and listen for free!  Your comments, Follows, likes and shares are encouraged. :)  Written, produced, Arranged and performed by myself, but for the violin.

‘Shades of Red’ Now available on Itunes!!

  • Annie Bonsignore’s self produced debut album, Shades of Red is a collection of 11 original songs with her extraordinary voice accompanied only by piano and violin, with minimalist traces of guitar and percussion. Mini operatic excursions take the place of solos, in this air tight production that really breathes. Ranging from early Brill Building era songcraft to modern Disney stylings, Annie has made an exceptionally beautiful, emotive album, all about the darker shades of love.

Annie is currently performing in Toronto and the surrounding areas.
