ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Her smoky voice softly filled the room and wrapped itself around each note from the piano. Each line that Angela sang showed off her vocal strength and control. What made it more memorable was the passion that flowed as she sang Roberta Flack's 'The Closer I Get To You."
-Metro Newspaper Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Hennessy X.O. sponsored the talented Angela Stribling as the featured vocalist on the Hennessy X.O. Smooth and Mello Jazz Tour, along with extraordinary New York based musicians: saxophonist Brooks Giles, pianist Oliver von Essen, drummer George Gray, and bassist Tom Hubbard.

Her star is quickly rising internationally, after sold out shows in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Taipai, Kaohsiung, Seoul, Bangkok, and recently Tokyo, Japan.

Angela's dynamic performances have earned her the honor of sharing the stage with the some of the world's most gifted musicians including the incomparible Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, Najee, guitarist Mark Whitfield, and bassist Victor Bailey. One of Angela's highest honors was being invited as the vocalist to perform at a gala tribute for Congressman Charles Rangel hosted by former president, Bill Clinton, Robert DiNero, and Kevin Spacey.

This is the CD for you if you like Soul, Jazz and R&B. You'll find a fresh approach to standards like "You Don't Know What Love Is," and "Teach Me Tonight." And a very pretty rendition of the Emotions '70's hit, "Show Me How."
Although she is often compared with artists Phyliss Hyman, Erykah Badu, and Sade, her warm, sensual, smoky voice, together with unique phrasing and spirit provoking lyrics, firmly establish Angela's originality.

Angela is a native of Buffalo, New York and discovered her passion for singing at the age of 4. Vocally trained in jazz and classical studies. She hones her skills in New York City at various venues including The Blue Note, The Rainbow Room, and The Supper Club.

When listening to "Angela Stribling...Live!" you get the feeling of actually being front and center at The Blue Note in New York City as members of the audience get a chance to join in on the first tune, "Fever." The final guest on Fever is the masterful Stevie Wonder, who not only sings amazingly, but throws in a little free style humor. Band members: Gary Grainger on bass, Greg Grainger drums, Benjie Porecki piano, Gali Sanchez percussion, Marshall Keys saxophone.

Angela sings a sultry, soulful rendition of "My Funny Valentine" where trumpeter Joey Morant feverishly conveys that same emotion. George Gray joins the band on drums.

"I Can Still Feel You" is a beautiful, emotive song written for friend and former co-host on BET, Melvin Lindsey. By the way, Melvin created The Quiet Storm radio format. She wrote the song after Melvin passed away tragically from the AIDS Virus. This is one of the most requested songs at live performances.

"Voice Seduction" is an original tune written by Charlie Jones, Elise Perry and Angela. It's a sweet, playful song about falling in love with someone just by the sound of their voice.

"WITHIN"
A smooth blend of Hip Hop and R&B, "Within" is a perfect reminder that we have everything that we need to be joyful, healthy, and abundant, right inside of ourselves. The "Interlude" is from President Nelson Mandela's Inaugural Speech and it sets up this song nicely. The voices in the interlude are all Angela..Lyrics by Angela Stribling. Marcus Johnson on Keyboard. Jacques Johnson on Guitar.

If the picture looks familiar to you, it could be because of her stellar television career. As host of "Screen Scene" on BET, she was the network's entertainment news anchor interviewing luminaries in the television and film industry. She also appeared in several films and television shows including Buena Vista Picture's "The Distinguished Gentlaman" starring Eddie Murphy.

With a lifelong love for jazz, Angela was an obvious choice when it was time for BET to launch their 24hour jazz network, BET Jazz. Angela not only complied, but was the key host for several of the fledgling network's programming, including Jazz Central, Jazz Scene, and Jazz Discovery.

Angela is one of the most sought after voices in the country. Her professional credits include television and radio campaigns for Mercedes-Benz, Prudential Financial, and US Airways. Influencing millions of people just by the sound of her voice. And what a voice! Smooth, distinctive and commanding - like her personal style.

There is a new star shining brightly in the sky!
This is truly the best surprise of the year. Angela's renditions of fever,my funny valentine, and you don't know what love is are just breathtaking. It is in her original tracks though, that you see what she is all about. The tracks are passionate, thoughtful, and inspiring. She is gifted beyond this reviewer's words. Angela is for real, y'all
