Artist of the Week || Rachel Angel
When Rachel Angel sings “I wanna be a renegade,” she is speaking to the experience of personal transformation and resilience, like putting on a protective coat of armor to meet the world with grace and courage. While the songs on the EP were inspired by the spirit of outlaw country, her sense of the outlaw is metaphorical rather than literal. These songs are about taking the unconventional artists path, and staring in the face of danger, fear, and pain.
In her upcoming EP “Highway Songs”, the country-folk troubadour takes the listener on a wild journey— physical, emotional, spiritual, and everywhere in between. These songs were written in the midst of a harrowing time for Angel— she was physically sick with an auto-immune disease, self-quarantined in her Brooklyn apartment, writing at a feverish pace. She reflected on her recent travels, both as a touring musician, and time spent in Mexico during a 7.1 earthquake with her family. Both referential to great American songwriters, and wholly original, Rachel’s songwriting prowess and her powerful and evocative voice are on full display in “Highway Songs”.
The EP will be released on CD and digitally via Miami label, Public Works Records in August 21st, 2020.
