Angelo M.'s CD,
Far From Home
Gets European Airplay
& Great Feedback;
plus, April 22 Concert
Currently, Angelo M.'s debut CD, Far From Home is playing on several FM stations in Europe and showing up on playlist for stations in Denmark, Belgium and Poland.
In each instance Angelo was contacted by DJ's from the radio stations asking for a copy of the CD to play on the air. In addition to airplay Far From Home is getting some great feedback from Europe:
A review from Poland's Blues & Gospel Radio Host- Przemek Draheim on CD Baby gives the album a **** Star Rating - GREAT!
"Very good guitar playing, beautiful voice and great songs!
I really enjoy listening to this CD. My favorite cut is "Thirty Years". Well, he's got a hit in this one.
I am sure that my listeners will love that song. It has great radio appeal!"
And Belgium DJ, Franken Braerken in a RootsTime Review describes Far From Home: "In the style of Chris Smither, Ry Cooder, Terry Garland, and Ray Bonneville, but with its own accents
Angelo M. delivers 9 original songs of excellent quality."
Braerken calls Angelo M. a "Brilliant Guitarist" and notes an "Excellent Voice", and in reference to the third track on the CD Braerken says "Lost, produces goose bumps with a brilliant slide and acoustic guitar; this song all alone justifies the purchase of the album."

Thanks to the airplay, reviews, and CD Baby, Angelo M. has picked up fans and sold CDs in Europe eventhough he has yet to play or directly promote his album there (though he hopes to do both in the future)!
