Last October, as part of her house concert tour across the U.S., singer-songwriter Annie Stela set up and played her songs in my living room. Her performance still often lingers in my mind; I remember her effortlessly playing songs like “Breathe Through,” “Heart,” and “Clean It Up,” undoubtedly making a true connection with everyone in the room that night with her voice and words. Annie’s a unique performer — really, a special talent — and I can’t wait to see her again.
She recently released an EP called William, “consisting of songs written and originally performed solely by artists with the name William.” You know, like Billy Joel and Billy Idol. And, oh yeah, today’s JOTD, Billy Squier’s “My Kinda Lover.” I’m confident that after just one listen you’ll be shaking your booty.
The best news? Annie’s William EP is available as a free download throughout the month of February. Visit Annie’s website to get your digital copy after you listen to the JOTD below!
