Biography

Angel Forrest has seduced audiences with her energy and dynamic vocal style. Consumed by a passion for the Blues, she toured the four corners of the world, including Mexico, Japan and Morocco.

Angel then began performing Janis Joplin’s repertoire with her own special touch and immortalized it with a second album titled Angel Sings Janis Live in 1998. All these years of experience have helped her acquire and perfect her original, strong yet warm and inviting voice. In February 2001, she released her first original French album entitled Étrange ce qui Dérange.

She is now releasing HERE FOR YOU, her first original English recording. When writing Here For You, she was inspired by everything that surrounds her as a woman, a mother and a lover seeking balance. On this record, Angel focuses on the small things that create her universe. The result is a gutsy folk sound, filled with emotions that only a mature artist is able to deliver so purely.

The first single COME TO ME, is a powerful ballad about wanting a second chance at love. Other songs include the title track Here For You, which speaks of letting go of the questions and to just enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. There’s also Mother Nature, which adds a touch of blues and reveals how important it is to be close to the people we love and appreciate every moment. The track, Free with its exotics rhythms, talks about how good you feel when you realize you are free from a relationship that hurts.

The overall result is a pop-folk sound, surrounded by a beautifully warm and powerful voice. Adding to Angel’s incredible live performances, Here For You will seduce a public looking for a moving experience with a passionate artist.

Lyrics

Free

Written By: Angel Forrest

it's been awhile since i found out
that you and i weren't meant to fly.
now and then when i'm in doubt
don't you know i still scrape the sky.
for so long i lived without
some simple things but i'm not blind no
now it's time to carry on
i never knew how to say good-bye

magic carpets flying high about as high as a carpet flys,there i was wonderin why
i couldn't just grab on and take a ride.
in the laughter of a child,
in the buzzin of the bee,
i know where freedom hides
and freedoms all that's left for me,for me

like a butterfly with style
like a forest fire gone wild
i wanna shout from the highest peak that
i am free
i am free, i am free

i'm gonna roll out of my mind
tell you just the way i feel
won't you please be so kind
and just give,give yourself to me
i found what i couldn't find
i finally found well.. a little piece of mind
i've done,i've done my time now i can say
that i am free
i am free
i am free
i am free

it's been awhile since i found out
that you and i weren't meant to fly...

Come To Me

Written By: Angel Forrest


LEAD ME TO THE WATER LINE
WHERE I'LL CLEAR MY THOUGHTS AND SPEND MY TIME
THINKIN BOUT A PLACE CALLED HOME
AT THE WATER'S EDGE I'LL BE SKIMMING STONES

MEET ME ON THE MOUTAIN TOP
WE CAN SOAR WITH THE EAGLES TILL THE SPINNING STOPS
WE CAN CALL TO THE ANGELS, WELL WE JUST NEED ONE
TO GET US THROUGH TO THE SEVENTH SUN

(CHORUS)
COME TO ME WITH OPEN ARMS, I'M WAITING
I'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED , I'M ANTICIPATING

I TAXI DOWN THIS OPEN ROAD
LEAVING ALL THE PEOPLE AND THE TOWN I KNOW
TRYING TO GET ME BACK TO YOU
SO I CAN LOVE YOU LIKE I ALWAYS WANTED TO

I'LL CALL YOU WHEN I REACH CAPRI
WE'LL SOAK UP THE SUN ON THE ITALIAN SEA
WE'LL SIP THE RED WHILE WE PLAN AHEAD
LIVING AND LOVING JUST YOU AND ME

(CHORUS)
COME TO ME WITH OPEN ARMS, I'M WAITING
I'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED , I'M ANTICIPATING
YOUR LOVE

DID YOU EVER THINK, THAT YOU EVER COULD
I ALWAYS HOPED THAT ONE DAY YOU WOULD
WALK THE WIRE, YOU KNOW THERE'S NOT MANY
WHO COULD TURN THEIR BACKS ON A PALACE OF PLENTY

(CHORUS)
COME TO ME WITH OPEN ARMS, I'M WAITING
I'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED , I'M ANTICIPATING
TO TOUCH YOUR SKIN, TO KISS YOUR LIPS
TO HOLD YOU LIKE I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO

(CHORUS)
COME TO ME WITH OPEN ARMS, I'M WAITING
I'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED , I'M ANTICIPATING
COME TO ME WITH OPEN ARMS, I'M WAITING
I'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED , I'M ANTICIPATING

Strung Out

Written By: Angel Forrest

STRUNG OUT

I'M STRUNG OUT ON MY MAN
HE CALLS THE RAIN DOWN WITH HIS HAND
I DON'T BELIEVE THERE'S ANY OTHER
HE MAKES WATER FROM THE WINE TO WASH ME DOWN

I'M ADDICTED TO THE REASON
OF WHY WE CHANGE WITH EVERY SEASON
WE'LL HOLD OUR BREATH UNTIL WE REACH THE END
JUST BELIEVIN THAT WE'RE DOING THE BEST WE CAN

HE'S RISEN FROM GRACE
STANDING TALL FACE TO FACE
HE PULLS MY LOAD AND HE CARRIES IT LONG
WHEN HE LAYS ME DOWN MY TROUBLES ARE GONE

LOVE YOU BAYBE
LOVE YOU BAYBE
LOVE YOU BAYBE
AND I'M NEVER LETTING GO

IS IT ME THAT YOU BELIEVE IN
WHEN I'M WEAK YOU HOLD ME SWAY
ONE STEP TOWARDS ME AND I'M SHAKIN
YOUR BABY BLUES THEY BLOW ME AWAY

LOVE YOU BAYBE
LOVE YOU BAYBE
LOVE YOU BAYBE
AND I'M NEVER LETTING GO
NO I'M NEVER LETTING GO

A New Day

Written By: Angel Forrest-Moran

A New Day

i can take you all the way
through the valleys of my mind
while your down there looking up
you'll feel your heart beat back in time

it's been a long hard road
but i knew that one day it would come
and now that i am standing here
i feel a new day has begun

-chorus-
close your eyes and walk tall
you know i'll catch you if you fall
you can run and you can hide
but i'll always be there by your side

i can take you all the way
through the valleys of my mind
maybe this time you could stay
there's nothing left to leave behind

it's been a long hard road
but i knew that one day it would come
and now that you are standing here
walk with me towards the sun

-chorus-

feel the light, don't be scared of it
through your life when it shines don't run from it
if you feel the wind brush your skin
you know it's coming from deep within
and if you follow the sweet side of things
hope will be there by your side

-chorus-
