Title - 'Ryland Angel' (Manhattan Records)
Artist - Ryland Angel

Originating from a world of liturgical choirs and opera houses, British countertenor Ryland Angel has composed an album that showcases unique modern songwriting styles. On his self-titled debut album, Ryland creates a compelling, distinctive sound that infuses his haunting, operatic voice with a progressive, adult-pop style.

And oh boy, can this guy sing! His songs are rich and lovely, his lyrics very substantial, and at the same time easy to listen to - the way a great pop song should be.

And so therein lies my dilemma - as, for me Ryland Angel transcends all categories. These are one-of-a-kind songs wrapped around a voice that simmers, smokes and sets fire. Imagine a voice the the power of Freddy Mercury, the soul of George Michael and spirit of Brian Wilson. A dreamy quality resonates throughout. I would give this record to my daughter, my mother and my grandmother!

In fact, it is truly timeless, stylish and yes, ... even quietly British! A remarkable sense of genius lurks inside these original songs of loss, forgiveness and love. Ryland Angel's debut gets my vote as the best album of the year so far!
