New Album from Indie Singer-Songwriter is Not What You'd Expect

"Getting tough, with a unique touch, is what EMILY ANGELL brings to this world of pop." - CHF
THORNWOOD, N.Y. - Jan. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- The new single, Boss, from Independent singer/songwriter Emily Angell, will likely have millennial girls rolling down their car windows and shouting about how they run the town.

Built for This, the third studio EP from the harmonica-toting musician, is an electronic pop compilation of catchy melodies a la Bea Miller, Rachel Platten, and Madison Beer. Angell, who grew up on The Beatles, James Taylor, and Christina Aguilera has deviated from the acoustic stylings of her first two albums as well as her nice-girl-playing-guitar-in-the-corner of-the-local-bar persona. "I had my heart broken and I was listening to a lot of Cardi B., Krewella, and Rihanna to make myself feel better," Angell notes in jest. "I needed to create a song that would empower people the way those artists did for me."

That's exactly what she's accomplished with her new song Boss, which indie music blog calls "the anthem for you gals" and goes on to say "races into the subconscious of your mind and hooks in like – whoa."  Not one for sticking to genre lines, the remainder of Angell's five-song project crosses sounds from country, to folk, to electronica. The final song in the collection, Keep Singing, laces Angell's late grandfather's harmonica with violin and orchestral elements to create a dramatic, pulsating tribute to those no longer with us.

Angell, who also produced the album, had a couple of noteworthy collaborators. David Andronico, who's contributed songs to NBC's This is Us, ABC's Station 19, The UFC, among many others, co-produced and mixed the album. Angell notes "I couldn't have done this without Dave. He pushed me out of my comfort zone, challenging me to write better songs and encouraging me to expand on my production skills." The two met at The City College of New York's Sonic Arts Center together in 2005 and have remained friends. In addition, the project was mastered by Oscar Zambrano of Zampol Productions, whose clients include Spotify and a host of Grammy Award winners. They met at Crushing Music right before the jingle mogul closed up shop in 2008. After that, Angell worked for Zampol. She notes "I learned everything about mixing and mastering from Oscar -- he was one of my greatest mentors."

Angell's new EP (short for extended play, which usually consists of 4-8 songs, respectively) was released December 9th and can be heard on all major outlets including Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and many others.
