Check out PMJ newcomer Annie Bosko smoothing Avril Lavigne’s precocious punk snarl into a smooth soul ballad, swathed in lush vintage strings, in our new remake of “Complicated”:
“Complicated” is all about acting like you’re somebody else, but Annie isn’t trying to fool anyone – she just happens to be equally comfortable in two different worlds. In her Music City hometown she can usually be found sporting cowboy boots, crooning country tunes with an acoustic guitar slung around her shoulders. In her PMJ debut, she’s elegant in high heels and a sequined gown, her voice sounding just as powerful uptown as it does down home. In Scott Bradlee’s soul-meets-country string arrangement, the complaint of a rebellious teen becomes the lament of a sophisticated diva, proving things don’t get any less complicated as we grow up.
