- 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.
