2011 Music Performances Schedule

1:20 PM Ann Feld
If Thievery Corporation and Regina Spektor had a music child... Quirky, poetic lyrics sung over piano driven electronic music.
Ann Feld was born on a cold January morning in 1985 to a musical household that played everything from John Denver to funk and R&B. She grew up recording her own improvs and ditties on her electronic keyboard with an old Fisher-Price recorder, hoping one day to make something of those songs.
After recording many of her own songs that will not see the light of day beyond her bedroom closet, Ann Feld finally created her first album, "Welcome to the Aquarium," a 7-track release of music and lyrics that she worked on during 2009. Since then, she has released on iTunes and Bandcamp a second album called "Coming Up For Air" in late 2010 and a reworked version of her first album called "Welcome Back to the Aquarium" in May 2011. She is currently at work on a third album of original material!
