Over the weekend, Nashville singer songwriter Angel Snow wrapped up a successful Pledge Music campaign to fund her sophomore album due out in October.
Snow, a Georgia gal now living in Nashville, caught the eye and ear of Alison Krauss two years ago and scored an opening spot for Krauss at Ryman last summer. Her success follows her stunning debut, Fortune Tellers (Amazon MP3 & Spotify), released back in 2007. “When I met Alison I knew that something was about to happen in my life,” Snow recalls. “The stars aligned in one afternoon, and I met her at the home of a mutual friend. I gave her a CD and she asked me to come to her house the next day. She made me realize that better things were in store for me. It was more than I could have ever hoped for.” We’re not surprised Alison liked that CD.
Alison’s brother Viktor Krauss, a brilliant bassist who backs Lyle Lovett and others, writes and performs with Snow and is featured on the new album, which he also produced. The duo also wrote “Lie Awake,” a song featured on Alison’s latest album, Paper Airplane.
In addition to funding her album, Snow’s campaign (like Banjo’s) also raises money for our friends at the American Cancer Society, a charity she chose in memory of her late aunt. We like that.
You can catch Snow as she tours around the East Coast this fall. Here’s a great song that we’re hoping will be on the new album.
