Rock On Philly Exclusive Interview: Avi Wisnia

Tonight I had the pleasure of chatting it up with Avi Wisnia, a super talented singer/songwriter that I have known since (gasp!) 2008. His music is best described by the tagline on his website: “Think Ben Folds meets Norah Jones, if they had a lovechild in Brazil.”

Avi plays piano superbly, sings, and even incorporates the melodica and kazoo into his performances, which are always high energy & filled with fantastic banter. His love for Brazilian bossa nova and affinity for Brazilian culture makes him quite special as far as singer/songwriters go. In October 2013, he even gave a Ted Talk at TedX Cape May on this style of music called: The Nature & Nurture of Bossa Nova.

In our Skype Interview, Avi and I chat about his musical beginnings, plans for recording & touring in 2014, as well as his upcoming performance with The 9 Songwriters Series at World Cafe Live on January 29th.
