ANGELA HESSE HEATS UP SUMMER WITH NEW SINGLE—"HOT SUMMERTIME" --FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM RELEASING IN AUGUST
NEW ALBUM "BITTERSWEET" STREETS
In the midst of one of the hottest summers on record, breaking new country artist, Angela Hesse, is turning the heat up even further for country music listeners with her debut single, “Hot Summertime” (HMG/ASH Records) now radiating nationally across the airwaves.
“Hot Summertime” is but one centerpiece of Angela’s much-anticipated debut album project, “Bittersweet,” –an incredible in-studio labor of love on both the performance and songwriting sides for the stunning tall, blue-eyed blonde with the radiate smile. The album will street in August, giving country music audiences a full-on introduction to a newcomer with the undeniable talent, looks, and determination to make the full run to super-stardom.
With the beautiful exterior comes a performer and songwriter of noteworthy depth as well as the surprisingly untraditional country music pedigree of being born and raised in Minnesota—far off the average southern track of her contemporaries in the 2012 industry freshman class. She grew up on a farm in southern Minnesota, the youngest of four and the only girl.
“I decided to move to Nashville in the fall of 2011,” Angie noted in a recent interview. “I loved my family and growing up on the farm –I was involved in piano, dance, 4-H and every sport possible but I knew since I was very young that I wanted to have a career in music.”
Influenced in her music by artists as eclectic as Shania Twain, Kelly Clarkston, and Patsy Cline, Angela stopped off to gather her college degree in music on the way to the pursuit of her dreams.
Her song selection on “Bittersweet” paints both rich self-portraits of her own life experiences and emotions, as well as addressing issues she hopes to bring light to bear on—from suicide and human trafficking to a bonus track “He Smiles” –the proceeds from which Angela is earmarking for cancer related charities. Aware of the platform for good causes that celebrity can bring, Angela is an artist on a mission beyond stardom. “I care about people,” she notes, “and I want to make this world a better place for everyone.”
At 23, with dedication and a commitment to her career center-stage, Angela is poised to be a major influencer in this new season in country music. Passionate about being close to her support base, her social media stats attest to a rapidly building fan base and plans for a fall radio tour in support of the new album promise to introduce her music to an even wider listenership.
As for long term goals, Angie's wish list is simple: Her own hit songs on the Billboard charts, touring with her own band, and taking a few CMA Awards for the Minnesota home-team!
