Welcome back- Amel Larrieux Amel Larrieux - Brave Bird (The Bliss Group)

The lady with the angelic like voice returns. It's hard to believe but It's been almost four years since Amel Larrieux graced us with her excellent debut solo set 'Infinite Possibilities' (on with then label Sony). The album excellently produced in both quantity and quality by her and her husband Laru Larrieux gave us the classic hits 'Get Up' and 'I 'n' I'.

The former Groove Theory co-founder and front lady gets back into the groove of things with her latest single called 'Brave Bird' taken from the album of the same name (that will be out come Jan. 20, 2004 on Blisslife Records) and the single dare I say is well worth the wait. The song written and produced by her and her hubby is solid track throughout, a mid tempo house beat drives light moog keys and showcases her sweet delivery which is excellent as usual.

There's been a frenzy of interest for her to release her second album especially after her first did so well but she apparently had other plans that included a trip to the small screen for a lead role in the animated series Maat Kara for the cable channell SciFi. She uses her sexy voice for the title roles charactor.

She's also been busy performing as well doing the Essence on Campus college tour where she's toured some of the top Black colleges in the country and also appeared and performed at the COACH 60th Anniversary celebration that took place in Japan. And if that is not enough she's landed herself a grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals for her duet with Glenn Lewis on Stanley Clarke's remake of the Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack classic 'Where is the Love'.

This track should find it's way to radio station formats across the country so request it frequent and often and don't forget the full length will be in stores come next month. Good to see her back, a TY-D Pick indeed.

Listen to Amel Larrieux - 'Brave Bird'
