On her debut album The Woman In Me
, singer-songwriter Angel Travis
' voice and spirit join forces for an extraordinary musical tour de force. The young Washington State-bred transplant to Los Angeles has a confident and elegant style that embraces its audience on the first listen, and an emotional honesty that forges an immediate heart to heart connection.
Veteran producer/musician Barry Goldberg commented, "I have worked with some pretty good lady vocalists throughout my career such as: Janis Joplin
, Gladys Knight
, Kelly Clarkson
and Tracy Nelson
, to name a few. So, I know when I hear the magic. It's always something special. Angel Travis is just that...she is a natural."
Actor Jeff Goldblum
, who is also well known as a musician and presenter of exclusive music events in the Los Angeles area, said, "I listened to this music, closed my eyes, and my heart felt like a candied apple dipped in rum."
Travis' talents came to the attention of acclaimed producer/engineer Michael Vail Blum (Madonna
, Young Dubliners
, Suicidal Tendencies
, etc.), who produced her 10-song debut. The disc also features arrangements and keyboards from co-producer Herman Jackson, whose more than four decades long career spans work with artists including Narada Michael Walden
, Nancy Wilson, The Jazz Crusaders
, The Temptations
Angel Travis' personal and artistic evolution can barely be contained on this radiant debut. As you hear "the magic" pour out of her self-penned and soulfully delivered songs, know that this is only the first of many triumphs from an artist whose gifts blend echoes of Etta James
, Sarah McLachlan
, Crystal Gayle
, Valerie Wellington
and other inspirations into one unique artistic signature.
