‘Voice’ album during Indy CD & Vinyl appearance
Addison Agen may have a new album in stores when she performs June 17 at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park.
The Fort Wayne teenager and “The Voice” runner-up talked about her music plans Sunday afternoon during a free performance presented by Indy CD & Vinyl in Broad Ripple.
Agen showcased three songs expected to be included on her post-“Voice” album, tentatively set for release in June.
Upcoming single “No Way Out” served as the centerpiece of the performance.
The blues-influenced ballad features downcast lyrics that could be interpreted as a suicide-prevention message with Agen singing, “I knew you well before you gave up” and “Who told you there was no way out?”
Agen made a music video to accompany “No Way Out” in February. Directed by Nigel Dick (whose credits include Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and Britney Spears’ “… Baby One More Time”), the “No Way Out” video was made partially at the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Wayne.
A main character in the video, Agen said, is portrayed by her brother, Korrigan Agen.
Wearing an “A” letterman jacket she picked up at an antique store in Dallas, 17-year-old Addison introduced new song “Who I Am” as one having significant personal meaning.
Saying she wrote the song before her “Voice” season began airing last September, Agen intended “Who I Am” to be a proactive affirmation before inevitable detractors arrived.
“I’m going to love who I am,” she sang in the strong tones that landed her on the teams of celebrity “Voice” coaches Adam Levine and Miley Cyrus.
The current season of “The Voice” features another strong contender from Fort Wayne: Top 12 finalist Christiana Danielle.
