STREETS OF ROME
Streets Of Rome was formed in early 2013 in Sonoma County, in the California’s wine country. The band was co-founded by songwriters Edward Patrick Mooney and Ana Luisa Anzore to write and record original musical narratives affirming life, faith and the dignity of the human spirit. Mooney and Anzore write songs by and for "people that have lived a little" - drawing on real life experiences to create unique and personal songs.
Streets Of Rome released its debut 4-song CD/EP "Fifty Years Before The Mast" in July 2013 and since then has released 16 additional songs available on iTunes, CDBaby and digital streaming media such as Spotify, Rdio and iHeart Radio.
Edward Patrick Mooney (Songwriter; Vocals; and Guitar, Bass)
Edward Patrick Mooney began writing songs in his early teens and began playing in bands while in high school. After college, he was a songwriter and sang and played bass for a Los Angelese post-punk band that achieved critical acclaim. Over the past ten years he has been involved in youth ministry, parish music ministry, parish and diocese councils, community involvement as a youth coach, and is the co-founder of the Global University for Lifelong Learning, which brings educational and empowerment opportunities to some of the world’s poorest communities. In addition to Streets Of Rome, he is writing a musical based on the life and work of Father Junipero Serra, under permission from the publisher of a biography of the Father of the California Missions, "Spirit of Serra."
Ana Anzore (Songwriter; Vocals; and Guitar, Banjo, Ukelele, Stand-up Bass)
At a young age Ana Anzore discovered playing and singing music was a way to bring joy to others. In recent years she rediscovered the love of bringing music to others and made it her ministry, both as a parish and Cursillo musician and by performing in bands. She regularly performs for senior centers and Alzheimer care facilities. She is a singer and plays multiple instruments for Streets Of Rome on recordings and in live performances. She also performs with Homebrew – an Americana band from Petaluma, California.
Streets Of Rome performs for benefits, causes, charities as a duet and also performs with a full band.
