about

Produced by cutting edge Los Angeles sound designer, RYAT (Brainfeeder Records), the album contains nine new original songs as well as an edgy, electro-acoustic rendition of the standard, I Only Have Eyes For You (written by Harry Warren and Al Dubin).

This album takes a more decisive turn toward what's known as “the Bristol sound” and is heavily influenced by my favorite band, Portishead. It also contains doses of tight, weaving harmonies in the style of the Andrews Sisters. I hope listeners will hear nods to Bjork and The Chemical Brothers. The project themes are based on what I'm calling my “faith cycle,”: a life-long pattern of hope, doubt, determination, failure, surrender, and the moments in between. Guest musicians include Sam Nobles of Mean Lady, Ritchie Rubini, Jordan Maguire, and Ray Gagliardino. This beautiful photograph is by Sunny Miller and Jay Walker, sunnymillerphoto.com.

PRE-ORDER GOODIES: There is an extended version of the track, Tiger In Tow, which will be released on September 1, 2014. It is a limited edition track available only with the pre-order of the digital and/or physical album.

Track Name: Bring It On
Bring It On
Angela Sheik, BMI

Got a mother in high country,
got a father in his grave,
got my troubles tied around me as I drown beneath this wave.
Lord, I know that you're beside me but this burden's threatening to take me down.
Oh, I need to hear you whisper, “This ain't nothing for me, son. Bring it on.”

Got a sister in revival,
got a brother in L.A.
Got a mind set on survival,
got a hope that needs a way.
Lord, I know you're in it with me but this pain is threatening to win the day.
Oh, I need to hear you whisper, “This ain't nothing for me, son. Bring it on.”

Got a river in my pathway that I don't know how to cross.
Got a load of kin that’s been suffering, doubled over from the loss.
Lord, I know that you're beside me, and there ain't no heart alive that's too far gone.
Still I need to hear you whisper,
“This ain't nothing for me, son. Bring it on.”
Track Name: LTD. EDITION - Tiger In Tow extended version (avail. for pre-orders only)
Tiger In Tow
Angela Sheik BMI

Better go with a tiger in tow,
better go with a dagger in your stocking,
better with a mighty blow ready just in case the monsters show.

Better go with a bouncer named Moe,
better go with a blade in your pocket,
better go with the whole gun show ‘cause it's better than not going at all.

Is it possible to lay our weapons down?
Is it possible to show our weak places, saying,
“Here is my heart, you can hurt it if you want to”?

Better go with a tiger in tow,
better go with your bow and arrow,
better go ready to rumble and roll, that is, if you go at all.

Is it possible to lay our weapons down?
Is it possible to show up naked, saying,
“Hurt me if you want, I know my love can take it”?

Say it's possible to lay our weapons down.
Say it's possible to show our weak places, saying,
“Here is my heart, you can hurt it if you want to.”
