Ann Kittredge’s Romantic Notions hits the airwaves

“Vocal interpretations [are] bursting with an inventiveness that leaves one awestruck.” — Lisa Jo Sagolla, Bistro Awards

New York, NY – Ann Kittredge’s highly anticipated second album, Romantic Notions (Jazzheads, Inc./King Kozmo Music), contains a diverse collection of popular hits re-interpreted in a way that only Ann can do it. She integrates a broad range of rhythms and sentiments into every song and takes her audience on an emotional roller coaster ride showcasing her wide vocal range and talent for evoking strong emotion.

A multi-award winning vocalist, Kittredge transforms multiple classics, infusing them with new depth and artistry collaborating with Musical Director Christopher Denny, Producer Paul Rolnick, and Consultant Barry Kleinbort.

 

The popularity of her pre-album releases of Carole King’s “I Feel the Earth Move” and Billy Joel’s “You’re My Home” with hundreds of thousands of hits on Spotify are a testament to the excitement generating for Romantic Notions. Songs by pop legends such as Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Webb, and Billy Joel are also re-ignited as Kittredge dissects them and puts them back together with inspired interpretations of multi-faceted love, appealing to today’s audiences. Broadway giants like Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and Steven Lutvak and country music greats like John Prine, Jon Vezner, and Don Henry are represented with fresh approaches, sure to tug at your heart in new ways. Romantic Notions delves into both the basic and complex emotional underpinnings of love that fuel and sometimes dismantle relationships.

A rare and stunning stand-alone song by the Tony-winning and Oscar-nominated songwriting team Ahrens & Flaherty, makes its debut, “Garden.” Will Friedwald raves, “Sheer joy!” and “Filled with warmth… and sensuality.” – Cabaret Scenes

“[The] key strength of Ann Kittredge’s singing is that she can take a piece like “Garden” and make you forget you are even listening to a song, but rather more like hearing a close friend impart a deep, personal truth: a confession as much as a song. And, at the same time, deliver “Mr. Tambourine Man” in a way that makes you feel you know precisely what’s going on, even if you can’t really articulate it in specific words.”

Ann Kittredge has graced Broadway, Off-Broadway, and major venues across the country, collaborating with top producers and directors throughout her career. She is a multi-MAC award recipient and won the LaMott-Friedman award for her debut album reIMAGINE, which received rave reviews and has garnered over 600,000 streams worldwide. Ann made a dazzling debut performance at the 2022 Mabel Mercer Foundation presentation at Rose Hall, Lincoln Center.

Kittredge brings fresh life to the many characters she’s performed nationwide, including roles like Marian Paroo and Eliza Doolittle, numerous City Center Encore appearances, Rosalind in Moon Over Buffalo, and title roles in Eleanor (about Eleanor Roosevelt) and Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Iolanthe.” She is actively involved in various organizations, sitting on the Advisory Board of The American Songbook Association, which provides cabaret workshops to underprivileged NYC public school students, and The Capital Cabaret Organization, which promotes cabaret art in the nation’s capital. Ann is also a member of Soka Gakkai International, a Buddhist NGO of the United Nations.
