David's Angels

David’s Angels releases debut CD ”Substar” on Kopasetic Records, distributed through Naxos In a project where jazz, rock, minimalism, avant-garde influences the sound of the band, David’s Angels paints amazing soundscapes not easily branded. Prize-winning swedish composer-pianist Maggi Olin and vocalist Sofie Norling of Sweden, a new name with a big talent, created the music and lyrics that make up the ”Substar” CD. The theme of the set is of belonging, loss, sorrow and ambition., The musicians are born in the sixties, seventies and eighties and pulls from a diverse set of influences in creating this sound. Sofie Norling is a new graduate of Malmo Academy of Music, Sweden, and is quickly making a name for herself with a haunting beautiful voice and a intuitive and secure melodic performance. She is also in Nuaia and Quiet Nights Orchestra. Danish drummer-percussionist Michala Østergaard-Nielsen also performs with Marc Ducret and Lotte Anker. Her sense of dynamics and group sound plays an important role. Electric bassist David Carlsson uses vintage basses, effects and bow as requisites as well as a personal vision to create the bassparts to this music. He has a background in pop and rock bands like The Mopeds. Maggi’s fellow Berklee College of Music and long-time friend trumpeter Ingrid Jensen guests the recording on selected songs. Ingrid and Maggi has long had a strong musical rapport, latest on their cooperation in Nordic Connect with the release of ”Flurry” in 2007 and the very new release of Nordic Connect ”Spirals” 2010 both on ArtistShare. Another ArtistShare artist, Torben Waldorff, provided the title song for his new CD ”American Rock Beauty” here titled ”Stay For a While”
