London based rhythm and blues artist, Angie A, has recorded her fun and upbeat, reality television inspired, jump-jive track, ‘Essex Girl (Professional)’.
Angie’s latest track has a strong rhythm and blues feel to it, taking a sample from ‘Caldonia’ by Fleecy Moore. In addition, the inspiration for the song comes partly from the hit TV show, The Only Way Is Essex and its star, Gemma Collins, but also from the Dagenham girls of the 1960s who fought for women’s fair pay.
However, this is not Angie’s first foray into the world of music. She has appeared on Britain’s Got Talent where she received compliments on her voice from judges, Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan.
On the back of her latest single, Angie is also supporting the #IamanEssexGirl campaign to have the new dictionary definition removed due to it causing offence.
Also a singing teacher in her spare time, Angie’s pin-point vocals have a classic, rich tone similar to the likes of Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Band and Nina Simone.
