Angelic vocals, mystic poetry with deep soulful sounds. The Dawn Light will take you on a journey that will inspire your heart and soul to dance.
After many years of deeply connecting with the profound verses of great poets – Daniel Ladinsky (renderings of Hafiz) and Francis Brabazon – Angela began to use their poems as lyrics, writing songs that could be described as a dear companion to the human spirit, shedding beams of light, joy and inspiration on the path of life.
To share the love, Angela teamed up with her husband and music partner Oj Newcomb to bring to life ‘The Dawn Light’, named after one of Francis Brabazon’s poems.
Influenced by artists such as Carinne Bailey Rae, Lianne La Havas, Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Allen Stone, Emily King, Jose James, D’Angelo, Jill Scott, Jon Cleary, Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim, The Dawn Light’s sound is angelic, playful, moving and deeply soulful, paying homage to these great poets. This combination of musicians, words and music will surely inspire your heart and soul to dance.
“Incredible. Beautiful. Mesmerizing. Absolutely loved the set!”
“Angelic, playful and deeply soulful performance. This combination of musicians, words and music will surely inspire your heart and soul. “
“When I heard the album I was mesmerized… by the writing, the vocals and just the way you vocalized and how you shared those stories… It’s really deeply moving.”
“The heart is a thousand-stringed instrument that can only be tuned with Love.”
