Edgy R&B/Pop Princess, Angela Jae, Releases New Single "Broken Heart"
(New York, NY) - Feb 8, 2012 - It's not a secret that R&B has needed a makeover for some time now. With artists like Frank Ocean, Drake, Jhene Aiko, Dawn Richard and others, R&B has taken a nice turn for the better. With electronic music taking over the clubs and radio, there is a need for more melodic and harmonic structure. This is where Angela Jae, a Houston gem, has taken the wheel. She's come prepared with sleek vocals on a bed draped with filtered sweeps, lined with knocking beats provided by the production duo "Aeronotiks". This, her debut single entitled "Broken Heart", a story of trust turned heartbreak, forsaken then embraced, is proof of her talents both as a writer and as a vocalist.
"Broken Heart comes from a very real place, which ironically didn't become clear to me until after it was completed and I had a chance to listen back and internalize it. I was like, wait, am I hurt?," She remarks jokingly.
Angela Jae, formally signed to Warner Bros in a group deal, has had the pleasure of working with such writers as Tank, Adonis, Brian Michael Cox, and The Clutch. She's now embarking on her solo journey and, with her pen skills in tow, she plans to forge her own path. She has sworn to not be boxed in.
"My music is definitely R&B driven, with strong alternative/pop influences. I have grown so much as a singer/songwriter over the years, and my style certainly reflects that." says Angela Jae. "I want my audience to experience something completely different with each record, so for me, the most important thing is to trust the emotions that guide me as I write. This way, at least I know I am sharing from an honest place."
No place is more honest than the rough streets of New York City. Where the gruff city has chewed up some, it has come to accept Angela Jae and her many talents as Singer, Songwriter, Model and Visual Artist. New York's many outlets and rich culture make it just the right place for this multi-faceted southern angel to shine. Her decision to leave sunny Houston for the cold city has made for a stronger story.
"New York can be a very intimidating place, especially for a country girl like me. But I've always had grandiose goals and amazing faith, and to me, there was no better place to put that faith to work than in the Big Apple. It's the perfect place for a dreamer with a hustler's mentality, so I feel right at home." says Angela Jae. "Houston will always be home. I love my city! It's where I was born and raised. But I knew I had to leave that comfort in order to really see what I was made of."
