If you travel around America's Midwest you might well come across a gig by this talented singer/songwriter from Traverse City. It would clearly be worth a visit. With a voice that echoes Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos and Laura Nyro but remains very much her own and songs intensely sung over her own punchy acoustic, Angela Josephine shows herself to be a poetic songwriter able to pen songs that get under the shield of the post modern muse with power and poignancy. There are a set of well played accompaniments here featuring everything from lilting dulcimers to elegant piano. This fine release warrants investigation and we can but hope that the talented lady makes it to these shores one day.
