Angela Sclafani is a singer-songwriter based in New York City. With a string of successful releases to her name, Angela follows up this year with new single "Bell Jar." Her fusion of hummable melodies with themes of indie rock and a sense for vibrant storytelling might remind you a bit of Aimee Mann.

Angela combines confessional lyrics with passionate and emotional vocals, and with "Bell Jar" she explores the often-ignored instinct to break free from the confines of a failed relationship. There are times that we just need a friend to remind us that something better is possible, and "Bell Jar" describes that defining moment of personal catharsis that is brought on by the advice of someone close to us. Combining the allure of crunchy electric guitar with a driving drum groove, Angela Sclafani sings from the heart about putting our worst days behind us.

If you say that you'd like to get it down in words
I'll provide the pen
And if he says your version of events is absurd
I'll make him make amends
And if they try to lock you in
Well, I'll break you out
You don't need your kin
Just a good escape route
Come on, pack up, I'll save you from this part
I know it by heart
Come on put all your sweaters in my car
And I'll take you far
Wind up, let go; and shatter that bell jar

Angela is a two-time first-place winner of the Great American Song Contest's Adult Contemporary category. "Bell Jar" was produced by Katie Buchanan.
