Quick Overview

From Minnesota via Los Angeles, 22-year old Anni Rossi is now based in Chicago. A classically trained musician from a young age, Anni is a most accom- plished multi-instrumentalist and as you’ll hear, it’s the viola that forms the centerpiece to her music.
Her debut 4AD release, Afton is both an accom- plished and confident album. Fleshed out to great ef- fect, most tracks were recorded in October of 2006. Collected on this mini-album (EP) for the first time, they work incredibly well together and introduce her perfectly as a new American talent.
Anni has recently been working with Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio studio on her debut album, which is slated for release on 4AD in early 2009.
She’s no slouch, having already extensively toured her solo work and honing her live performances to a jaw-dropping T. She can also count artists like Elec- trelane and The Ting Tings among her admirers and has toured Europe and the US with both of them. Anni Rossi will be touring portions of the US this fall.
