    Angel Forrest offers a rich album with various sounds ranging from blues to rock to jazz. To ask what was the inspiration for her latest album, Angel's reply was "The number 11 is very big in my life, and I wanted to document my musical career by showcasing some of the amazing guitarists with whom I have worked with and who have inspired me to become the singer I am today. Well known on the North American blues scene, Angel has performed at many of the major musical festivals in both N.America and Europe, earning her the title of N.America's No.1 Blues Diva. She began her musical career with her first album Secondhand Blues, which featured several blues classics, she garnered attention from both critics and fans . It was her tribute show to Janis Joplin, that brought Angel Forrest to the public at large, her interpretation of Janis's work was a no brainer amongst festival attendees and club patrons, her unique signature on blues takes us on a step beyond. Angel decided to immortalize her interpretations of the songs on an album Angel Sings Janis "Live". Her best seller Angel At The Palace "Live" captures the true essence of her live performance a blues-drenched and soulful performance, with her charismatic stage presence, someone who's voice has been described as a cross between Etta James and Robert Plant.
