Listen: Women For Hire Song

November 6, 2006 1:10 PM


Aspiring hip-hop artist Emily Angell sent us a song she recorded about Women For Hire. Even though she's not looking for traditional employment, she knows the struggles of women looking to define and secure their own success.

GIVE US YOUR FEEDBACK: Tell us what you think of this song -- both in terms of the lyrics and the performance. Your candid thoughts will be valuable feedback for Emily as she focuses on advacning her musical career.

ABOUT EMILY: Born and raised in upstate New York, Emily has been singing ever since she could talk. Throughout her childhood and adolescent years, her mother taught her the joys of music. Although the cello was a beautiful instrument she learned to play, Emily decided to concentrate on voice as the years progressed. She was classically trained and participated in numerous competitions and choral emsembles. She also appeared in high school productions of Les Meserables as Fantine, and as Maria in West Side Story. Being that her mother is a music teacher and her father is an engineer, Emily decided to combine the best of both worlds when she decided to apply to the audio production program at the City College of New York in Harlem. Presently, Emily studies at the Sonic Arts Center, always trying to perfect her vocal and production techniques. She uses the alias Siren and she's currently collaborating with Dash Speaks and NickName from Screw York Records (screwyork.com) on various hip-hop tracks and performances. She enjoys performing and hopes to inspire others through music and the art of acoustics.
