The Earth Angels


The Earth Angels is a Spanish doo-wop vocal group formed in Catalonia. Their members come from its capital, Barcelona and they carry out live a cappella performances following the traditional way of performing this genre, by singing on the streets and places of the cities they visit.[2] They became a band in 2007, when Christian Carrasco (son of Rafael Carrasco, the second drummer of the Spanish band Los Sírex[3]) a Bass-baritone, announced in a web page that he was looking for a singer of doo wop and he found Jordi Majó, the main vocalist.

The Earth Angels is a Spanish doo-wop vocal group formed in Catalonia. Their members come from its capital, Barcelona and they carry out live a cappella performances following the traditional way of performing this genre, by singing on the streets and places of the cities they visit.[2] They became a band in 2007, when Christian Carrasco (son of Rafael Carrasco, the second drummer of the Spanish band Los Sírex[3]) a Bass-baritone, announced in a web page that he was looking for a singer of doo wop and he found Jordi Majó, the main vocalist. Since then, they carried out live performances based in the tradition as well as in radio and television stations in Barcelona and the Balearic Islands. Afterwards, Joan Carrasco, brother of Christian, joined the band, both influenced in this music style by their father during their infancy and they recorded their first version of the track Step by Step of the band The Crests.[4] In 2008, they starred a television ad for the Vodafone telecommunications company.[5] In 2009, they participated in a compilation of greatest doo wop hits with the most famous groups of the street corner style at present time, performing the theme In Your Company, album that was released by Crystal Ball Records in October of this same year.[6] In the middle of 2010, Pol Daurella, one of the vocalists of the Taller de Músics de Barcelona, joined them for the rehearsals and with whom they prepared the release of their second studio album before becoming an official member.[7] Their speciality consists in performing covers of song themes considered as rarities of this genre, initially recorded between 1958 and 1964, but they also compose their own melodies, so they have been sponsored by the Rare Rocking Records musical company.[8] Also, they released a musical video directed by David Conill and Christina Scheper, in where they perform a cover of the song This is the night for love,[9] first published by the vocal band The Valiants in 1958.[10] In 2010, with the release of their first commercial job, a compact disc with 15 covers and two themes of their own Street Corner Style, they became the Today's Doo Wop Masters Series premier band.[11] At the same time, Kingsley Abbot an expert journalist in writing books of the music of the sixties,[12] gave them four stars in the review she made about them at the musical page Record Collector, stating the following:[13] Until very recently, The Earth Angels could be found harmonising on the streets of Barcelona.

With this debut album, however, they’ve turned in one of the most satisfying and credible modern doo wop collections we’ve ever heard. The Angels have three key assets: impeccable choice of rare songs to cover; great background vocal arrangements, with each of the three group members tackling a wide range; and a particularly youthful and attractive lead voice in Jordi Majo. In may of this same year, during three days, they participated in the Doo-wop festival celebrated at the Benedum Center for the performing arts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with the greatest artirts of this music style like The Quotations, The Marcels and The Edsels, the creators of the popular Rama Lama Ding Dong song.[14] At the hall of the hotel Hilton, they performed a live a cappella cover of the American hit A Thousand Stars with The Quotations and Kathy Young, the original singer of the song.[15] Shortly thereafter, on June 25, 2010, they participated in the seventh edition of the voice festival's (a) Phonica in the Catalonian town of Banyoles.[16] They owe their success in the United States to having been discovered by Joe Conroy (DJ Brad) from the radio station Doo Wop Café, (part of Lagniappe Broadcast Network) dedicated to preserving American music of the 1950s. Conroy found a cover they had uploaded to the YouTube network of the song My Island in The Sun, primary performed by The Capris. Amazed by the sound of the group, he was in touch with them immediately by mail and after interchanging several messages, he suggested them the recording of a compact disc because they did not interpret classic songs but obscure hits of this style, so he started the arrangements for the production and dissemination of their music.[17][18] On the other hand, Carmen Kaye, the presenter of the Australian radio station Doo Wop Corner, included them in her worldwide list of featured bands of the present time doo wop.[19] The twelfth of February 2011, they participated in the Rock, Rhythm & Doo-Wop! music festival celebrated at the Dutch town of Oss, where Pete Bowen, from the British magazine Now Dig This, commented that Jordi Majó was the best doo wop singer he had heard since the glorious days of this genre.[20] Read more on Last.fm.
