ANNIE DINERMAN is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose lyrics reveal a frank, funny and very female point of view. She walks in the footsteps of storytelling artists like Paul Simon and Wendy Waldman. Critics have described Annie Dinerman as a next-generation Christine Lavin (Rambles.net) and Carole King's sister, but a bit warmer, and armed with a guitar instead of a piano. And like King, she's got great songwriting chops. (Sing Out! Magazine). But Annie's warm, witty and womanly writers voice is distinctly Dinerman.
Annie's latest CD, "BROKEN COOKIES," was released in late 2009. All 12 songs can be heard in this epk. "BROKEN COOKIES" was produced by Steve Addabbo (Shawn Colvin, Suzanne Vega, Sonya Kitchell). Annie's twelve new songs include a collaboration with Steve Addabbo on the title song. Annie's newest recording displays her trademark wit and tender courage, as she shares in the same challenges facing many Americans: the stress of unemployment, the loss of friends to AIDS and 9/11, Love vs. Frugality in the Recession, and concern about our Environment.
Annie first found a large and loyal following for her original songs as a college student and then in Southwest Ohio coffeehouses. Her inimitable style as a lyricist is equally influenced by anonymous, enduring folksongs and her fathers huge collection of Sinatra records. The only native Ohioan in a family of transplanted New Yorkers, she heard the artists call and moved to New York to focus on songwriting.
There are over 30 covers of Annie Dinermans songs, including Child In Me Again, recorded by Kathie Gifford on her Born For You CD (2000). The CD hit three Billboard charts: #1 on Heatseekers, #6 on Top Contemporary Christian, and #139 on Top 200.
In 2007, Dinerman received a grant from the Anna Sosenko Assist Trust to cover some recording expenses for the BROKEN COOKIES CD.
