I must say, that artists like Lucia Lilikoi make me truly grateful to be a part of the Balanced Breakfast family. I might have never discovered her beautiful voice and music if not for them. It’s a testimony to how many amazing independent artists exist, ones you will likely never hear of unless you make the choice to seek them out.
“Angel Of Mine” is one of my favorite new songs. The vocals and musical production of this song paired with the amazing mixing and mastering, most of which are done by Lucia, are excellent. And yes, this woman is not only a singer and songwriter, she’s her own instrumentalist and sound engineer. It’s true, take a second to let that process. “Angel Of Mine” has the haunting appeal of Johnny Cash’s “Hurt”. There’s an appropriate emptiness to it that transports me to the desert at dawn with a crackling fire and stars appearing in the sky, the time of day that is dark and yet so full of color. A true experience. The vocals evoke a sense of peace and oneness with the earth. I’m not surprised about this as it is Lucia’s mission to create music that brings healing. I really hope her music reaches the masses. So many could benefit from hearing it.
