Italian music artist Annie Barbazza is releasing her debut solo album "Vive" at the end of the month. After being discovered by progressive rock legend Greg Lake, Barbazza is now prepared to step into the spotlight, with the help of some friends. The new thirteen-song release begins with her soaring vocals on "Ys," which also features some sonic guitar work from Daniel Lanois. She slowly makes her way through "June," before delivering the emotional ballad "From Too Much Love Of Living." Her voice continues to demand your attention, as in the atmospheric, floating tones of "Wrote Myself A Letter" and the duet of "How Beautiful You Are." The album quietly continues with the relaxing melody of "Tide," before finishing with Annie's stunning vocals on "Lotus Flower" and the acoustic folk appeal of "Boite a Tisanes," which features Greg Lake and Fred Firth.
