Hi Drew and thank you so much for the information on All Angels.
...there's a lot of extra information there, some of which we already knew but couldn't say! But now, we can and I'll leave it to Roger to "spill the beans"
What beans? Ah yes, I remember now...
On Wednesday afternoon, I exchanged a few emails with Steve Abbott. I had a hunch that he just might know something about All Angels and so I asked him outright if they were within the Bedlam Management camp....
YES, they are!!!
He has described their CD as "really lovely" which is what Dave, Simon and I thought when we first heard the clip on their website. He also told me that Hayley had been with them the previous night and given them a little pep talk before they took the stage. Thanks to Drew, we now know what she said!
I hope the day will come when Hayley appears with them in concert although nothing has been mentioned about that possibility yet. However, the fact that they share a manager would indicate the chances are quite likely.
Well, that is the extent of the news for now. But watch this space. There could be more to come.
I was told that Hayley spoke to the girls immediately prior to them appearing "at last night's concert". As I said, that was on Wednesday but no details were given as to where the concert was held. Steve was almost certainly present.
Many thanks again for all the extra information you've posted today about this! We now know that this week's publicity for All Angels is geared towards National Music Week and the "My Music" awards for schoolchildren - with other participating acts, too. Therefore, we think it's best to have a separate thread for this and I've just started one here with the earliest report about it I can find, in Music Week on Tuesday.
We'd like all future posts about All Angels' involvement in National Music Week or the My Music awards to be posted, please, in the new thread but posts about All Angels generally should continue to be posted in here or, if more appropriate, another new thread in their dedicated sub-board.
Wow! I am highly impressed by everything I have heard from the girls so far. This looks as if it's going to be a very enjoyable album. I particularly like Songbird -- it's such a beautiful piece! With a sound like that, they are going to go very far indeed!
*** Away on "holiday" (a.k.a. swamped with homework!). Will be back soon! ***
