Debut album, “Wanted” from Angela Easson was launched last Friday at the Norwood Hotel in her hometown of Adelaide, SA. Produced by Rob Mackay (Luke O’Shea, Tanya Self, Kaylee Bell) of Pacific International Music in both Queensland’s Hervey Bay and country music capital Nashville, USA. All 13 tracks on “Wanted” were written by Angela, a 2010 CMAA Country Music Academy graduate.
“Wanted” was recorded in March 2015, when Angela and her family stayed on Fraser Island for the week and she travelled across to Hervey Bay each day. After meeting Kaylee Bell at the 2011 Mildura Country Music Festival and hearing her Rob-Mackay-created album “Wayward”, Angela knew she’d found her new producer.
The album features first single ‘Once Upon A Time’, this self-penned track was inspired when thinking about her first love and reflecting back on those days. The single was serviced via a download on the KrisKat Publicity website – CLICK HERE (password is required, if you need this, please email KrisKat Publicity) The associated video clip was created by award-winning producer Duncan Toombs – VIEW THE CLIP HERE
Angela began singing at the age of 10 when she fell in love with country music after attending her first country music event in Mount Gambier, SA. Moving to Adelaide in 1997, she has worked with many South Australian musicians, branching into different genres including pop, jazz and blues. Angela is an active member in the community, including the lead vocalist for the Onkaparinga Big Band.
In 2010 Angela’s natural song-writing abilities were celebrated after winning the South Australian APRA Modern Country Song Of The Year and the South Australian APRA Overall Country Song of The Year with her song ‘Forget To Forget You’. That following year, Angela was named a Toyota Star Maker finalist and released her self-titled debut EP. More recently Angela performed at The Sydney Country Music Festival, a two-day event at Bella Vista Farm Park, NSW featuring 26 Australian and international artists including Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey, Adam Brand, Amber Lawrence and The Wolfe Brothers.
“Wanted” is OUT NOW and distributed through WJO | Universal Music Australia
