Review: Añel presents a set of personal songs that deeply touch the listener's ear, mind and soul, and bring to mind the confessional yet universal genius of such songwriters as Tracy Chapman. They are well-written & powerfully sung reflections of all the hustle and bustle of Añel's own life as a New York-born Cuban-African American from Spanish Harlem,
If You Like: Tracy Chapman, Joan Armatrading, Joni Mitchell, Cecile McLorrin Salvant
