Sadly we don’t know too much about Canadian singer ANGELA NASHED. We do know that she works out of Montreal and back in 2019 she charmed us with her version of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Mercy Mercy Me’. Oft-covered, she treated the classic a little differently – stripped down with a beautiful weaving, sensuous sax tracking her soulful vocal.
It won her plenty of friends in the soul community but since then not a lot has come our way… till now. Angela has just released another quite lovely soul tune – ‘Star’ . This one, we think, is an original song and it’s a steady, smooth, sophisticated modern soul groove. Vocally, the soundscape is sort of Lisa Stansfield meets Lindsey Webster – soulful with a jazzy undertow and the whole thing is really quite lovely and demands investigation. We believe it’s good to download/stream right now and it’s taken form Angela’s upcoming EP ‘Unintentional’.
