We first heard from 17 year-old singing sensation Vella in July upon the release of the live acoustic performance video of her song “Pull the Trigger.” That song introduced readers of The Static Dive to a Tampa, Florida phenom with a deep Soul sound that belies her young age. The red-headed songstress burst onto the scene in 2021 with a series of successful singles releases.
Soon she was touring across the United States, wowing fans with a voice that combines raw soul power with impeccable technique. The L3V3L Records recording artist most recently performed at the NFL 2021 Kickoff Experience in Tampa, FL and is now gearing up to perform at the Gasparilla Music Festival in Tampa, FL on October 3, 2021.
“Angel” is the latest single from Vella, released worldwide to all major streaming services on September 17, 2021. This time the singer takes us back to classic Soul funk. The upbeat track features a smoking-hot bass/drum/guitar groove and an arsenal of horns for a sound straight out of the Muscle Shoals playbook. As the band knocks out a killer jam that lands somewhere between Big Band and Big Brother and The Holding Company, Vella howls with the soul of Aretha and the raw energy of Janis as she tells her lover to get it together.
Watch Vella belt it out in the “Angel” video below. You can also hear the song on the Deep Indie Dive playlist or listen on your favorite streaming service. Follow the links below to connect with Vella. Get in the loop on all of the new music to come from this exciting young star on the rise.
