Alice-Anne Harwood and Robert Messore: The Woulds wow
Out of New Haven -- The combination of Alice-Anne Harwood's clear evocative voice (both in the singing and as a lyricist) and Robert Messore's nuanced guitar work and excellent arranging make The Woulds superb. They are sooo worth hearing. With heart and musical skill, poetic lyrics, an organic weaving of guitar and voice lines, an actual conversation between two musical entities - with humor & humanity - well you have to hear them live. There isn't any substitute for it. I saw them at the Buttonwood Tree in Middletown, for the Riverwood Poetry Series on Saturday night where the duo performed both musical compositions and AA's poetry with a guitar accompaniment.
