Artist: Angela Sheik

CD: Home Before Dark

Genera: Alternative Psychedelic Soul

 

 

 

 

Angela Sheik can be described as a Soulful Music Innovator. To start she is a fierce vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who wows audiences with her fast effects pedal footwork and mischievous smile. She builds her own virtual backup band using rhythmic harmonies, beatbox rhythms, a looper pedal, and a collection of unusual instruments (including autoharp, theremin, and flute). This, combined with soulful, gut-felt melodies, blends into an electronic-infused, folk-pop style reminiscent of Imogen Heap. Her upcoming 10 track album "Home Before Dark" is scheduled for release September 16th. I was blessed to get an early copy. Pre-release information on “Home Before Dark” is coming soon via the above link so stay tuned. The CD takes flight with the  single “Bring it On” a methodical intro piece that serves up impassioned vocal feel from Sheik meshed with impressive vocal harmonies, melodic musical touches against a hooky, grand slam chorus. Track 2 “Here Comes Trouble” downshifts a bit with its methodical piano driven intro eventually lending itself into an impressive “Gold Standard” ballad that flows and ebbs its way through to emotional fruition. Track 3 “Tiger in Tow” keeps thing moving in the right direction with its infectious melody, steady flowing rhythm, impressive finale, and heartfelt/thought provoking message from Sheik. The CD makes a great first impression dashing out 3 solid tracks in a row. Read Review
