Blue House Music presents… ANGEL SNOW

While working on her second full-length album and first for NETTWERK, Magnetic, atmospheric pop chanteuse and songwriter Angel Snow experienced something of a revelatory awakening.

As a little girl in Nashville, TN, the songstress’s older brother introduced her to the electronic sonic palette of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, and Trent Reznor, and she found herself painting with a familiar brush…“I love electronic elements, drum machines, beats, and interesting little sounds,” she exclaims. “That ambient style is something I’ve always been drawn to. It’s something I’ve always been passionate about, but I didn’t know if I could pull it off myself. While making Magnetic, I realized that I could. That revelation was a game-changer for me. It’s a dream that finally came to fruition.

Building a repertoire as an in-demand songwriter and acclaimed independent artist, Angel’s road twisted and turned to get to this point. She wrote three songs on GRAMMY® Award-winning singer Alison Krauss’s 2011 offering, Paper Airplane, as Nashville’s Music Row crowned her, “Nashville’s next stealth pop weapon.” Her 2012 self-titled debut spawned “These Days,” which notched 6 million-plus Spotify streams and earned acclaim from ‘American Songwriter’.

After touring the globe, she desired to expand and evolve her style beyond traditional Americana and folk. “I never felt like what I was doing really represented who I am and the message I was trying to get across,” she admits. “I wanted an otherworldly and dramatic sound”. Enter producer Lee Groves [Goldfrapp, Depeche Mode]. In December 2014, Angel began making regular trips to New York in order to cut what would become Magnetic. Her hypnotic delivery and cinematic lyrics entwined with Lee’s immersive and airy production, conjuring a spellbinding style.

“Every single song has a specific and significant story to tell,” she goes on. “Lee had a way of wrapping everything up to get that story across. The songs themselves are simple, but there’s a lot of open space. It can get emotional and theatrical.”

Ultimately, Angel connects on a deep level by coming full circle on Magnetic. “I understand how fear can paralyze people,” she remarks. “It’s something I’ve seen in my own life and amongst my friends.” For years, she hesitated to use some of the sounds that most deeply moved her out of fear. Becoming willing to be completely vulnerable and lean into the sonic textures that made her feel most alive, she found the freedom to create art that she was instinctually drawn to. Out of that, the name Magnetic emerged.

“When people hear this album, I want them to feel understood and like somebody empathizes,” she leaves off. “I’d love to provide a little hope. I want us to be able to sit in the dark with each other and share our stories, what we’re passionate about, and who we were created to be. I want them to feel loved.”
