Making a Scene Presents an interview with Angel Forrest!
In 1988, Angel Forrest began a musical career which would span over three decades – and counting. Her first album, Secondhand Blues, featured several classics. The energic vocalist’s work immediately gained attention from critics and new fans. Her tribute show to the legendary Janis Joplin brought Angel into the public eye. The live performance was immortalized on her Angel Sings Janis Live album.
Her first original composition album, Here For You, then sold over 30,000 copies and was followed by the other LPs, including her Wonderland Christmas album, the award-winning album Come Alive, as well as Mother Tongue Blues, which won her the Lys Blues Album of the Year in Québec and was nominated for the Recording of the Year at the 2014 Maple Blues Awards. Her last live opus, Electric Love, topped the charts around the world.
The Montreal artist was named Female Vocalist of the Year six straight times by the Toronto Blues Society between 2013 and 2018. Never limited to blues, the 2018 Memphis International Blues Challenge Finalist sings in the whole country, blues and rock spectrum. She is ready to get in the American market with her next album, set to be released in 2019.
