Om Annie/Powerdove:

Annie Lewandowski is a composer, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist whose work has situated her between the worlds of improvisation and independent rock music. As an improviser on the piano and accordion, she has recorded with Fred Frith, the London Improvisers Orchestra, Caroline Kraabel, Tim Feeney, CAGE, and Doublends, Vert, and performed with improvisers including Theresa Wong, Miya Masaoka, Chris Cutler, Chris Corsano, Evan Parker, Ellen Fullman, and Charles Hayward.

Annie Lewandowski comes from Minnesota, a place full of things that are long and longer: church services, dinner tables, and worry lines, to name a few. Somebody said there are ten thousand lakes there; if that’s true, each of them shows up in some little way in Annie’s songs. She writes under the name Powerdove, which began as a band of one in California in 2007.

As a singer, guitarist, and keyboardist, Lewandowski has recorded with rock bands Emma Zunz, Xiu Xiu, The
Curtains, Former Ghosts, William Ryan Fritch, and Hawnay Troof. Her band Powerdove has released five recordings:
Live at the Maybeck House (self-released, 2010), a self-titled EP (Circle into Square, 2011), Be Mine (Circle into
Square, 2011), Do You Burn? (Circle into Square/ Murailles Music/ Africantape, 2013), and Arrest (Murailles Music/
Sickroom Records, 2014). Lewandowski has performed at festivals and venues across the United States and Europe,
including the Casa da Música (Porto, Portugal), the Hippodrome (London), Musica Nelle Valli (San Martin Spino, Italy),
the Great American Music Hall (San Francisco), the Frieze Arts Fair (London), Avalon (Los Angeles), and Redcat (Los
Angeles). She is a 2014 Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellow.

Lewandowski received her Master of Fine Arts in Music Performance and Literature with a Specialization in
Improvisation from Mills College. At Mills, she was awarded the Flora Boyd Piano Performance prize for her work on
extended techniques for the piano. She is currently a lecturer in music at Cornell University.

”Lewandowski’s skeletal vocals nestled amidst house-of-cards instrumental arrangements point to a future where
improvisers might be able to bridge the gap between our present thirst for novel timbres and our past predilection for
narrative-driven songs.”
-Jonathan Pfeffer, WXPN, Philadelphia
