LOS ANGELES, CA, Nov 14, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
Some churchgoers spend their whole life in the pews because it’s
safe and comfortable, fully missing the narrative in each of the
gospels where Jesus makes a holy ruckus and overturns the tables of
the moneychangers. That’s the spirit of rock and roll, right there in
Scripture. That’s also the inspirational fire Angel Smythe
(
www.angelsmythe.com ) brings to her empowering, critically acclaimed
album “A Stronger Me.”

On November 10 at the 21st Annual Los Angeles Music Awards, the
emerging SoCal-based powerhouse became the first Contemporary
Christian artist ever to win (or even be nominated for) three top
prizes at the 21st annual event celebrating the best in indie music
making. In trouncing her secular competition, Angel won for Record of
the Year (“A Stronger Me”), Best Female Singer/Songwriter and
Producers Choice for Contemporary Christian Album of the Year.

Encouraged by her success with the LA Music Awards, Angel is
determined to make “A Stronger Me” the foundation of a larger
branding effort geared towards empowering women to overcome fears in
their lives with divine guidance just as she did. This effort will
include a book about her life experiences (the same ones she shares
with church audiences across the U.S.), a devotional book and
developing a women’s conference. In addition, “Entertaining Angels,”
a song she wrote with Orange County based jazz artist Tony Guerrero,
has been submitted to the organization Musicians With A Cause;
proceeds from its sale will go towards raising money to fight
homelessness.

Angel ups her game even further on “A Stronger Me,” which was largely
produced in Nashville by Keith Everette Smith (Charles Billingsley,
Meredith Andrews, Anthem Lights, The Bolts) and includes the work of
top session players like drummer Dan Needham (Amy Grant, Michael W.
Smith, Natalie Grant, Michael McDonald), bassist Tony Lucido (Steven
Curtis Chapman, Mandisa), guitarist Mike Payne (Matthew West),
drummer Dan Bailey (Phil Wickham), drummer Justin Glasco (Jeremy
Camp, Joy Williams, Vicky Beeching), and vocalist/vocal producer Josh
Auer.
