ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two Piano Tornado is an unpredictable vortex that will pick the listener up and deposit them in another realm, surrounding them with swirling riffs improvised completely from what they hear in each other's playing. Never the same, always changing direction, and always spinning through both standard and original tunes, Annie Avery and Grant Simpson are a true force of nature.

Two Piano Tornado! Are you ready for the ride ?

Annie Avery finds that making music gives joy that is unequaled in any other format. While studying for an honours degree in music composition, she was able to pursue jazz studies with Jerry Coker, which resulted in an influence that led to many years of playing all over North America. Moving to the Yukon with its Gold Rush atmosphere was a perfect fit for someone who loved ragtime as much as Annie. Equally competent at piano and organ, Annie has played in many combos, summer shows, and often accompanies Yukon's visiting musicians. Annie maintains a busy teaching studio, and believes that children with a developed love for music will grow to lead our future world.

Born at an early age, Grant Simpson deduced that earning a living as a musician and vaudevillian preferable to working. He has been a full time – professional musician and vaudevillian for over 30 years. Studying classical piano and guitar in his teens, his energy and focus began to lean towards folk, blues and traditional jazz, something that still colors everything he plays and composes.

In the past year alone, Grant has toured his music from Vancouver to Nanjing China to Ottawa, Toronto, Halifax, Moncton, Charlottetown, Cape Breton, Iqaluit, Baffin Island, Vancouver Island, Prince Rupert, Kemptville, on the train from Halifax to Vancouver (to name a few).
