So excited, my new Christmas EP comes out Nov 3, 2014! This EP will be a very traditional sound with 4 originals and 2 holiday classics. I started writing this material about 3 years ago. It's Christmas Time, the title track for the EP was one of the first songs I ever wrote. I was inspired by the reflection that Christmas always gives me. It is a song of praise and humbleness. It's an innocent song that is quite different from traditional Christmas songs and although it's not my best, it has sentimental value to me so I wanted to include it. "A Child is Born" is a song about the celebration of the birth of Christ. It is powerful and calls for deep thought about what the holiday is about to me. "Christmas Child" is a song about childhood memories and getting back to the true meaning of Christmas. "Christmas Means So Much to Me" is a song about the feelings of spirit and fun that Christmas brings out in all of us. Included in the collection are "Silent Night" and "O Holy Night" - 2 of my all time favorite Christmas songs.. They are classic and timeless and I needed to record these. I hope you enjoy the collection and if you should decide to buy it, it will be available on CDBaby.com, ITunes, Amazon and all music distribution sites. I will be donating the majority of proceeds from sales of this collection to "Operation Blessing"- a wonderful organization that helps so many people all around the world. God Bless and wishing everyone a beautiful peaceful, joy filled holiday season.. With Love and Gratitude,.. Angela
I woke this morning feeling so relaxed. I'm thinking about the end of the year and a new one coming really soon. I am going to drop my first EP at the end of this month and it will be a Christmas Collection of 5 songs. I set this goal quite awhile ago and let fear of rejection, procrastination and silly thinking get in the way of doing it in the past. I am feeling a sense of completion in that I am finally doing it no matter the nay sayers or the demons in my mind. I will be ending this year with new goals to get back to writing and composing all new material in 2015, sticking to my roots and opening my creative gifts to merge many types of music into beautiful sounds. Looking forward with grateful anticipation to what may come. In the meantime, it's a time to celebrate my first EP - listen to all my great artist friends music and relax as the inspiration for a new musical adventure begins soon.
Happy to report I am working on a Christmas EP, some old stuff revisted, some new stuff. I am very excited to be collaborating with amazing musicians from around the world. This collection will include some "holiday blues" tunes as well as some "Christian rock" compositions. Christmas is a wonderful time of year - and should be filled with MUSIC! I hope some of my friends and fans will come by and listen and share. I hope to have this EP out for sale for charity REAL soon! Love and hugs! Angela
The story behind Pentavibe is quite interesting. I was taking a course with Berklee College of Music and we were learning about the power of the pentatonic scale. I instinctively played the pentatonic all the time but didn’t know why or what it was. It was quite mind opening to learn that the scale comprised of 5 notes is a note combination that is harmonious to almost everything in music. This discovery prompted the writing of Pentavibe. I began to think about how the world has its own vibe and that music is the great communicator of these vibes and emotions. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you live, music is a language that all living beings relate to. The writing of the music to Pentavibe began the exploration of this connection to 5 important emotions and spiritual necessities of life. Faith, Gratitude, Peace, Love and Harmony are 5 things in life that are essential to living a life of abundance and happiness in all cultures and races. If we all practiced these 5 important ways of life there would be no wars, no hate, no misery. I hope that this song sends a message to all that listen to it that with these 5 vibes or grooves incorporated into our lives, all that is good in life falls into place! Music speaks the language of life, I hope the music and vibe of Pentavibe helps to speak to all that listen to it about the importance of living a life of Faith, Gratitude, Peace, Love and Harmony . Live with these 5 and let the music of the these vibes set you free., Let the music carry you away from all that is not right and to all that is good in our existence as a human being. God has blessed the music… With faith, gratitude, peace and love and harmony, Angela Terace PS- Thank you to Jesse Thibes of Brazil for collaborating with me. He delivers an amazing guitar addition to Pentavibe... We have never met and don’t speak the same language yet we totally understood this song instinctively, as the music allowed us to create a harmony of these 5 vibes. http://www.reverbnation.com/angelateracetrippe/song/21701602-pentavibe
Its Spring and time for renewal. I'm so ready to brush off the winter and get back to the things that are really important to me. Writing Music!! Working on a new song and hopefully a collaboration with another fantastic musician. This will be a Season for "Making a Change"
It's almost impossible for me to choose any one genre that I love and its hard to classify the type of music I write and play---but I have def inluences and a special love for classic rock guitar music. I just saw the Allman Bros. and Santana live and I was blown away. Im thinking they are all better than they ever were bcause they have mastered music beyond what we know as good music today. When the 2 bands played TOGETHER last night the blend of guitar harmonies and true rock rifs accompanied by the most amazing percussion was off the charts!! Totally amazing!! and I feel blessed to have been able to witness this. In these days of computer generated music, it is so awesome to see and hear these iconic musicians play their insturments with such passion. I have seen Santana live several times but honestly I think he and his band get better and better and the Allmans were smokin HOT!. To experience the phenomenal live sound and live music of these masters leaves me completely filled by the music.. The feeling will last or days..
Over to the Other Side, I love this hot song! Its about LETTING GO!! Love to the max, live it, love it.. let the music take you and your love there! , over to the other side, dont be afraid come with me!!
Just uploaded the vocal track for my new song, "Over to the Other Side". There is something about this song that totally turns me on. Maybe it's my brothers freakin hot guitar licks.. I sang this song with a raw vocal, the song is very sexy.
This song is about letting go, living, loving and totally just letting the music bring you where you want to go- to the other side!! xoxo
Ya know, I have been asking myself this for a long time. The music is pouring out of me like a well, I cant seem to stay in a genre. I love classical music, and want to write it, I love rock and roll and want to bring back that classic, lets just play it and rock it that we dont get to hear much of anymore. I love pop, dance, hip hop and country. So, who knows what will come out next? It took me a long time to figure out that this is for me- and to just do it! So now I am and loving every minute of. God Bless the music in all of us!! XOXO
