On her sultry and soulful debut EP What We Had,
With every swaying breeze of her distinctive voice, the multi-talented artist makes each track an opportunity to dream, love and reminisce wistfully about beautiful times gone by. She weaves this laid-back magic over old-school soul. Renowned producer Jason Miles adds his retro sounds on the Fender Rhodes, Vox Continental, and Wurlitzer. Four quick “s” adjectives come to mind when you first hear Rebecca Angel, making for some nice descriptive alliteration: smooth, soulful, sensual and sultry. Listening to her soulfully produced and exquisitely arranged debut What We Had, we can top that off with sexy and unabashedly sentimental as well. The emerging NYC based singer makes every emotionally compelling track an invitation – to dream, to love, to reminisce wistfully about beautiful times gone by which infuse every waking thought of today. With every swaying breeze of her distinctive voice, whether she’s singing romantic lyrics or sharing her artful sense of vocalese, Rebecca tempts us to explore her cool and edgy contemporary update on the deeply exotic vibe of classic artists like Sade and Brazilian greats Bebel Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto. Rebecca recently graduated with a degree in Vocal Jazz Studies from Ithaca College. She credits her immersive studies with giving her the practical skills to develop her individually inspired style. She studied with Roseanna Vitro, Cyrille Aimee (whose version of “Stand By Me” inspired Rebecca to record it).
