Sweet Angel has two albums under her belt. The first was released in March of 2007 entitled "Another Man's Meat on My Plate" and the second was released March of 2008 entitled "Handle Your Business". She has been nominated in the blues/soul industry for BEST NEW FEMALE ARTIST and BEST VOCAL PERFORMANCE BY A FEMALE. Sweet Angel was born in the cradle of R&B, Memphis, Tennessee, and has been singing and playing music from her days in elementary school. Judging by her first recording, Another Man's Meat On My Plate, that's not the case with Sweet Angel. Not only does she apparently have musical talent to spare, she's got the strength of personality and character needed to make that talent come alive when she performs. There are plenty of people, who can sing, and there are plenty of people who can play musical instruments, but there are very few people who have that extra quality that compels every eye in the house to focus on them when they walk on stage and begin to play.
Listening to the way Sweet Angel delivers her material on disc, it's easy to see her on stage. You've heard of performers who make each person in their live audience feel as if songs are sung to them personally; that's rare enough, yet Sweet Angel somehow manages to accomplish that on disc. Whatever it is, she breaks down that invisible barrier between audience and performer that is so key to making heartfelt music like soul or R&B come to life. There are a lot of performers that you might acknowledge for great voices or extraordinary musicianship, but their music and songs are forgettable. To my mind that means the person has cared more about themselves than the song that they perform. That's not the case with Sweet Angel; she's putting all her energies into selling the song and not only does it make the material all the more powerful, in the end it makes her more memorable. What sticks in my head after listening to her disc is the way she turned a phrase in a particular song that gave it character and personality; that brought the song to life. She has a good, strong voice, which she doesn't waste on pointless pyrotechnics; instead she uses it intelligently to make sure that every word and every line of what she sings is believable. Some people call that selling a song, but you only ever need to sell a song if you don't have the talent to convey what it offers. When you have talent such as Sweet Angel's, you do what you do best and let the song take care of itself. Sweet Angel's Another Man's Meat On My Plate is a great first album by an R&B performer worth watching. Her second album Handle Your Business confirms that Sweet Angel is here to stay. Written and produced by Sweet Angel and her husband Mike Dobbins, it is just as good as or better than her debut album. R&B might not be the force it once was, but with people like Sweet Angel out there it might just be on its way back; and that is a good thing.
