New York, NY (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
Independent artist, Alyssa Anjelica James, has produced a piece of work that acts as a soothing tonic for the listener on her new album "within". Her songs borrow from the subject matter of folk music mixed with the syncopation of R&B, and then offers us what could be the next jazz standards. This album has a fresh, ethereal sound that is hypnotic at times and there is an intimacy and tenderness to her vocal delivery that makes it seem like she is singing just for you.
The song "Subway Gospel" is a reaction to urban poverty as she calls for the listener to "hear me, hear me". "Pure and Holy" address's the current condition of our ecological crisis. "within" is an album for the sophisticated listener, yet the music still manages to remain entirely accessible. From the deep Afro-Cuban pulse of "Pure and Holy" to a loose R&B groove on "Laughter In The Distance", you float on to a dreamy jazzy sounding "Warm Day". Each track has its own distinctive feel and life thanks in part to Alyssa's production and co-production of Deron Johnson. For those seeking great new music this independent artist is truly worth checking out. The album is a must have for those looking for something special.
"within" is currently available online. For more information visit website http://www.alyssamusic.com
