Tonight, Angelique's first single, is a throwback to the 70s that combines strong vocals and witty lyrics to tell her guy that she is fine with who she is happy.

Biography

A few years ago, Angelique didn’t see herself doing what she loved since she was raised with the idea that the best way to earn a living was to go to college and get a “good” job. Although she showed interest in singing and performing at an early age, her parents didn’t encourage her pursue it because of the uncertainty they felt that type of career would bring.

To get her fill of what she enjoyed most, Angelique performed in local talent shows, community and church recitals, and started a singing group with friends. As college exams approached, she walked away from her passion. It wasn’t until a co-worker asked Angelique to front a local blues cover band that music reappeared in her life.

While the band was short lived, it did provide her with three important things: a great friend and guitarist, Carolina Goddard, an opportunity to appear on ENE Chicago Rock, a cable access show highlighting local talent, and the chance to meet local artist, Caswell James who convinced her to chase her passion.

That support system and some serious relationship bumps and bruises, lead her to write No Ordinary, her forthcoming debut album. It fuses alternative rock, electronica, jazz, and hip-hop with haunting lyrics and soulful vocals to tell stories of self-love, betrayal, loss, redemption and everything in between.

Lyrics

In Between

Written By: Jessica Angelique Anderson

We are lost somewhere between lust and love
I remember last you made me pine for more
We are lost somewhere between lust and love
I can feel my heart opening its door
How I wish I knew which side we leaned toward
Yeah I wish I knew which side we leaned toward
The only thing I’m sure of, the only thing I’m sure of
Is I love being lost with you
Yeah I love being in between with you
I am lost in your eyes when you smile at me
I am frozen inside when you’re cross with me
I am lost in your eyes when you smile at me
I am saddened inside when you’re melancholy
How I wish I knew just where we were (yes I do)
Yeah, I wish I knew just where we were
The only thing I’m sure of, the only thing I’m sure of
Is I love being lost with you
Yeah I love being in between with you
Sometimes you don’t know how long it takes for a flower to bloom
Sometimes you can’t tell what it takes for us to make it till June
(Till the summer baby)
But it’s dawning for us, yes it dawning for us
Summer is blooming for us
We are lost somewhere between dusk and dawn
Could it be you’re the sun I am setting on
We are lost somewhere between dusk and dawn
Maybe I’m the sun you are setting on
Yeah I think we know what day it was (I know I do)
When we first fell in love
The other thing I’m sure of, the other thing I’m sure of
Is I love being lost with you
Yeah I love being in between with you
