Annie Friedland


Annie has played keyboards since she was one-and-a-half years old. Coming from a family of musicians and artists helped. By the time she was four, she had been thrown out of classical lessons for hearing intricate pieces (she has perfect pitch) and playing them back to the teacher. She started doing gigs.

At eighteen she got a Hammond B-3 for graduation and almost exclusively played the organ for ten years. Despite winning a scholarship to Carnegie Mellon for opera in 1971, she went on the road instead. She opened for B.B. King in Las Vegas at eighteen, and played with Louis Prima, The Four Coins and her own trio until 1984.

Back in Pittsburgh, she was nominated for best jazz vocalist, played all the festivals there with Emily Remler, Kenny Blake and others
