British singer-songwriter and producer Angel has signed to Mark Pitts’ ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.
Angel was raised in West London where he developed a love for music at a young age. Surrounded by a keyboardist father who accompanied reggae luminaries like Bob Marley and a mother who introduced him to the swirling, sensuous world of 1990s R&B allowed Angel to study different genres and create his sound. In 2012, his single “Wonderful” peaked at #9 on the UK Singles Chart and topped the UK R&B Chart. Angel co-wrote on Roll Deep's chart-topping "Green Light" and collaborated with fellow UK leading lights like Wiley and Giggs on the mixtape 7 Minutes Before Time.
To celebrate the signing, Angel released his new single “Blessings,” which he wrote and produced, and its accompanying music video. The scenic video premiered today and was shot in London. It shows Angel surrounded by his community. The video is directed by Paul Akinrinoloa and produced by Stephané Alexandre.
“I’ve been doing this for a while and I feel blessed to wake up and be able to keep doing what I love every day," Angel said. "It’s the simple things. I’m proper excited to get this new music to you all as my Dad always says, 'The Race is not for the swift but for who can endure.'"
“Blessings” is Angel’s first U.S.-based release and the first single under his newly inked deal with ByStorm Entertainment and RCA Records.
