ECKO RECORDS RECORDING ARTIST SWEET ANGEL NABS 2008 JUS’ BLUES MUSIC AWARDS “BEST NEW SOUTHERN SOUL FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR”
MEMPHIS, TN, AUGUST 8, 2008: The Historic Daisy Theater on world famous Beale Street in downtown Memphis, TN was the place to be last night for the 2008 Jus’ Blues Music Awards Show. In attendance were many illustrious Soul and Blues entertainers, i.e. Trudy Lynn, Latimore, Floyd Taylor, Denise LaSalle and the legendary Joe Simon and many more.
Congratulations to all the winners and the nominees.
It was an enchanting evening of entertainment and information. Memphis’ very own, Sweet Angel, walked away with the 2008 JUS’ BLUES MUSIC AWARDS “BEST NEW SOUTHERN SOUL FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR” for Another Man’s Meat On My Plate. This project was done independently with writer/producer/manager Mac Dobbins. In May of this year, Sweet Angel was signed to the Memphis-based Ecko Records label. Ecko Records recently released a new CD on Sweet Angel entitled “Handle Your Business” which features two hit-bound numbers – “Guilty as Charged” and “I’m Sharing Your Man” both written Raymond Moore and John Ward. Sweet Angel performed these two songs last night at the awards show.
Sweet Angel is gracefully but rapidly becoming a strong force in the Soul and Blues arena.
Congratulations to Sweet Angel!!!
