Angel Air Records (where the artist has a voice), has been operating and trading successfully since 1997. Spearheaded by its driving force Peter Purnell, Angel Air has become a major force in the record industry.
Early in 2013, Peter was offered an album by singer/songwriter David Martin. The album was a mix of standard songs by the very best of American Songbook Songwriters. The sound of the Terry Coffey Trio and David’s soothing tones propelled Peter to release the album in April on a brand new imprint ‘Angel Air Nostalgia’.
Having started out his music career as singer, for David, this has been a journey of full circle and this album showcases his unique appealing style and vocal, which do the songs great credit. The title of the album ‘Silky Smooth Moments’ was inspired by David’s producer on the project Graham Noon, who repeatedly remarked during the recording process, how silky smooth David’s voice sounded.
Of course with a background of songwriting achievements to his name, featuring a who’s who of artists including, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, The Carpenters, Cliff Richard, Guys & Dolls, Boyzone and many others, it was hardly surprising that David could hardly resist coming up with a song of the same name and so, ‘Silky Smooth Moments’, featuring Terry Coffey on piano and David on vocal, is now the lead track on the album.
In anyone’s estimation, this album from David is long overdue and if current reaction is anything to go by, there is little doubt that it will make an enduring impact with lovers of tasteful and romantic music for some time to come.
