Dubbed ‘the new face of UK R’n’B’ (Radio 1), Angel is a truly gifted multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter who has quickly evolved into the R&B/pop Renaissance man of the moment.
Angel’s emergence on the music scene has been anything but usual. Born into a musical family, as a teenager he was touring alongside his brothers and sisters as part of The Charles Family band, and by the age of seventeen had gone solo and was writing songs for other artists.
2012 saw Angel rise from underground producer to releasing one of the biggest selling tracks of the year with Top 10 summer anthem ‘Wonderful’, receiving two nominations for the 2012 MOBO Awards and embarking on his own sold out headline tour. Now, Angel has also gathered fans among some of music’s finest, with the likes of Frank Ocean, Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah and Cheryl earmarking Angel as their favourite artist of the moment.
Co-written and co-produced by Angel, ‘About Time’ is his impressive debut album, sporting a collection of expertly crafted songs with spiritual integrity and undeniable commercial appeal, underpinned by one of the finest pop/R&B voices to come out of the UK in years. It boasts a kaleidoscope of musical influences and references that guarantee its universal appeal and confirms Angel as the UK’s new R&B pop prince.
Angel recently scored his third Top Ten single to date with Wiley feat Angel & Tinchy Stryder 'Lights On'.
