Such great heights

By CHRIS CONTI  |  April 24, 2013

The left coast inspired the EP's most stunning number, "Gloria." The imagery clearly reflects Azriel's mind state at the time. " 'Gloria' is a song about my inner world and the emotional journey that is life — soaring, soaring, and then falling. Picking up and soaring, then inevitably falling again," she said.

The aforementioned shot of locally sourced inspiration has Azriel already thinking about her next quest, responding with a "definitely" when I inquired about a potential full-length follow-up.

"I have written more in this last year than probably the last 10 years combined," she said, "and I honestly can't wait to get started on the next record.

"I'll also be looking for people to help me take this EP, as well as the next record, to a bigger audience."

Count me in.
