Angel Forrest - 'Electric Love' Album Review.
One of Canada's most respected and celebrated female Blues singers, Angel Forrest is gearing up to tour the UK for the very first time this March.
Kicking off in Sheffield on March 15th and closing in Glasgow on March 30th. The tour also takes in Manchester, Bristol, Aberdeen, Stoke, London and Edinburgh.
With a career spanning almost three decades, 10 albums and the prestigious Canadian Maple Blues Award for female vocalist for four consecutive years from 2013, the Quebec city Blues diva has rocked the stage at most of the major festivals across North America and many in Europe including France, Switzerland and Italy, but this will be her debut in the UK.
Angel has been compared to the likes of the iconic Janis Joplin, and music critics say her voice and dynamic stage presence is a cross between Etta James and Robert Plant.
Her new album 'Electric Love' is released to dovetail with the UK shows, and is an exciting double album of live recordings of her original songs from previous albums along with some of Angel's personal favourite covers.
Upon listening to this double live album you can't help but be blown away by the amazing vocals, whether it be an original or a cover, it just all sounds magnificent.
Every track on this album is very good and sounds fantastic recorded live. There is an amazing rendition of 'Mama' and 'Whole Lotta Love' to end the album which is just mad, but in a good way.
If you can get to any of the shows this March listed below, I would seriously suggest you do as it's not very often we will get a talent like this gracing our shores.
Album is available to buy on iTunes at the following link - Angel Forrest
