Hey, friends! I just received this email from my friend and amazing songwriter/performer, Annemarie Russell. She has a CD release show coming up. Please do yourself (and me) a favor and read it. I love to support and celebrate local musicians whenever I can. This is a perfect opportunity.
P.S. Happy Epiphany!

Dear Seattle area friends and family,I’m thrilled to announce that in less than two months, I’ll be celebratingthe release of my fourth CD, “100 Reasons.”This album is the result of almost a year’s worth of hard work, planning,artistic and creative talent, and a weeklong recording session at theOregon beach followed by another week in the studio in the New York Cityarea.To celebrate the culmination of this wonderful project, I’m pleased toannounce that I’ll be playing two CD release shows during the firstweekend of March—one in Portland and one in Seattle.The Seattle show and party will be held on Saturday evening, March 5 atThe Loft in Pioneer Square (208 S. Washington Street, Suite 200, Seattle),a festive and intimate venue. The show will start around 8pm and the doorsopen at 7:30. Tickets are $10 presale and $15 at the door. Tickets can bepurchased through Brown Paper Tickets at this website:http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/141898.There is a wine sponsor for this show, so wine and non-alcoholic drinkswill be served—we’ll be asking for a donation for the drinks, and aportion of the proceeds from the donation will be given to the Center ofContemporary Art (COCA) in Seattle, who is partially helping to host theevent.I’m pleased to share that almost ALL the musicians featured on “100Reasons” will be joining me for BOTH the Seattle and the Portland show:Nathan Eklund, Jeremy Varo-Haub, Douglas Haub, Arcellus Sykes andDemetrius Keller will share the stage with me.Please consider coming to support this CD release and hear the new music.You can email me if you have questions, or get the details on my website:www.annemarierussell.comAnd please do pass this email along to anyone else who might be interestedin attending.
