Judging by the lyrics of her new song “Foothills”, LA chanteuse Oriel Poole is a woman inspired by many aspects of life who isn’t afraid to go after what she wants.
“Life is worth the take
Make no time to waste
Challenges I face learning to create
Start from the heart, let my dreams make the rules
Let my soul shed the sound, so sensual
Wrapped up in love, it’s a bond I can’t break
A pathway only beauty awaits.”
Oriel Poole has only been producing music for two years but the mature, self-reflective qualities of her lyrics & arrangements, coupled with the veteran craftsmanship of co-producer Max Savage, take “Foothills” into similar territory as current Electro Soul heavy hitters like AlunaGeorge, London Grammar & Sia. Oriel Poole’s hardworking, grassroots approach to making music appear to have given her a creative edge. She’s a self taught producer who has raised her own money to produce an EP & build her brand. And that confidence in herself as an artist shines through in her music. The enticing Electro Soul sound of “Foothills” is MAGNETIC.
Her debut EP “Sunday” will be out in early 2015.
