Christmas with the Annie Moses Band Premiering on PBS

(EMAILWIRE.COM, December 02, 2009 ) West Palm Beach: Christmas has long been a gateway to expose new ears to the unique sound of the five-member, string-playing Annie Moses Band, considering audiences often broaden their musical tastes during the holidays. This all-sibling ensemble range from ages 26 – 11 starting with Annie (lead vocals, violin), Alex (viola, background vocals), Benjamin (cello), Gretchen (violin, mandolin), Camille (harp, piano)and Jeremiah (guitar). Annie, Alex and Benjamin have all been trained at the world-renowned Juilliard School, in New York City.

With the release of Christmas with the Annie Moses Band, the group makes its most stunning statement yet, spreading holiday cheer with a mix of original tunes and holiday classics, as never heard before.

“Christmas incites both happiness and reverence,” lead singer Annie Wolaver explains.

The Annie Moses Band is constantly pushing the boundaries of its art form, while drawing on a staggering array of musical styles and influences. The band’s latest Christmas collection, Christmas with the Annie Moses Band, takes that creative curiosity and focuses on finding fresh and unusual musical elements surrounding the Christmas season. In fact, this latest collection contains a dizzying array of musical styles, ranging from a bit of Latin flair on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman,” to holiday standards, such as “Go Tell It On the Mountain” and “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” add a touch of the familiar to the project. There are also moments of sheer, musical exhilaration, evidenced by “Sussex Carol,” and also a sense of quiet contemplation on the sweet tunes of, “When The Christmas Baby Cries.” but the Annie Moses Band’s indelible stamp is evident thanks to the arrangements of the sibling’s father, Bill Wolaver.

“When you’re dealing with classics that everyone knows, you have such a larger creative window to do something different,” shares Bill. “When we added that to the unplugged nature of this concert, it allowed us to
throw any musical boxes away.”

“The string sections on Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby’s Christmas projects were a huge musical inspiration for all of us on this album,” adds Alex Wolaver.

There is a remarkable story behind the reverence and respect heard and seen throughout the life of the Annie Moses Band, and it starts with the little fact that Annie Moses is not a member of the Annie Moses Band.
The Annie Moses Band dates back three generations to the sibling’s great-grandmother, who is the actual Annie Moses for which the group is named. Though she was a simple field worker in rural Texas, Annie recognized
her daughter Jane’s profound musical talent and desire to learn more. Thanks to Annie Moses’ determination, Jane was able to excel musically, despite the family’s meager resources. Jane passed that same drive on to her daughter, Robin, who in turned passed it on to all of her children: the Annie Moses Band!
