Debut album, Colours in the Night, coming soon!
Angel Straight was born on December 31st, 2016. My father, J. Lyndon Good, had written many songs over the years. Although I had heard him sing a few of his songs around the house, I did not know the extent of his work. One night, on New Year’s Eve, my mother mentioned to me that he had a series of recordings of his songs that I had never heard. I have always been a voracious fan of a wide variety of music, so I wanted to hear them. My father and I unearthed about twenty recordings from his archives, and I was blown away. I knew that I wanted to record all of his music and share it with others. Within months, we began writing songs together, three of which I performed at my high school’s annual variety shows. After my performance of “No, Not Quite” as a senior, the reaction of my classmates inspired me to pursue music. The summer after graduation, in 2019, my family relocated from Metro-Detroit to the Nashville area, where my father and I began performing live and recording our first CD, Colours in the Night. We are independent artists.
We decided to create a name to represent our collaboration. My father’s mother was a singer in the USO during World War II, and her maiden name was Straight; we included it in our name as an homage to her.
We are thrilled to share this collection of songs with you. There are more to come!
