Building a repertoire as an in-demand songwriter and acclaimed independent artist, Angel’s road twisted and turned to get to this point. She wrote three songs on GRAMMY® Awardwinning singer Alison Krauss’s 2011 offering, Paper Airplane, as Nashville’s Music Row crowned her, “Nashville’s next stealth pop weapon.” Her 2012 self-titled debut spawned “These Days,” which notched 6 million-plus Spotify streams and earned acclaim from American Songwriter. After touring the globe, she desired to expand and evolve her style beyond traditional Americana and folk.
“I never felt like what I was doing really represented who I am and the message I was trying to get across,” she admits. “I wanted an otherworldly and dramatic sound”
Enter producer Lee Groves [Goldfrapp, Depeche Mode]. In December 2014, Angel began making regular trips to New York in order to cut what would become Magnetic. Her hypnotic delivery and cinematic lyrics entwined with Lee’s immersive and airy production, conjuring a spellbinding style.
Released through Nettwerk Records, Magnetic siphons stories of love, life, and loss through a dreamscape of drum palpitations, keyboard eloquence, and stark minimalism.
“I understand how fear can paralyze people,” she remarks. “It’s something I’ve seen in my own life and amongst my friends.”
“When people hear my music, I want them to feel understood and like somebody has been there. I want us to be able to sit in the dark with each other and share our stories.
