EThree with host Bob Zucker this week featuring Special Guest 'Girls on the Road'
GIRLS ON THE ROAD is the Folktronica Fusion duo of singer/songwriter/keyboardists Annie Moscow and Rachael Nicole Gold. Their music draws on diverse influences ranging from Debussy, Charles Ives and the Beatles, to Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell and Bruce Hornsby. The duo's unique sound is the result of the blending of diverse musical influences and sparse, but deeply flexible instrumentation: two keyboards, an occasional guitar, and their powerful, signature vocals.
They're also quite funny. Audiences frequently comment how they seem to be able to read each others' minds, which is no surprise to Moscow and Gold, as they've been on and off collaborators for over thirty years. Together, they have composed music for film and TV and a variety of recording artists ranging from Sarah Vaughn to Sister Sledge to Mickey Mouse.
