Anjulie – Anjulie


Listen to any one track on Guyanese-Canadian singer/songwriter Anjulie’s self-titled debut, and it appears easy to pigeonhole her, to call her the next artist “X.” The only problem with that lazy categorization is that, on song after song, that “artist X” changes. Opening track and single “Boom” conjures up aughts genre-benders like Santigold; the song’s a sultry masala of miscellaneous styles, throwing dark bossa nova, Morricone-esque flourishes, Bond themes, acid jazz, and an insanely catchy half-scat hook all into one boiling-over (and madly sexy) musical pot. “Boom” ends in a flash and her audience is cast into the fluttering, deliciously sugary pop soul of Nelly Furtado on the mournful, yet batty-eyed “Rain.” – AMG


REVIEW OF REVIEWS

THE CANADIAN PRESS

Getting fired might end up being the best career move that Canadian singer-songwriter Anjulie ever made.
It was years ago that the now 25-year-old – real name Anjulie Persaud – was on a high-school internship at a Toronto recording studio, cleaning consoles and making coffee, when former Philosopher King Jon Levine walked through the door.
Immediately, she says, she realized she was in the presence of a big-time producer. “We started talking, he invited me out for lunch, and I left with him for lunch. And I ended up getting fired,” says Anjulie, who’s now living in Los Angeles.

URB MAGAZINE

Like most R&B singers that get popular, Anjulie has all the right tools. A unique, distinct voice, a certain vision and style, and definitely a treat for the eyes. However, in such a competitive music industry, this is not always enough, and I am not sure if Anjulie has the extra spark… that is needed to be truly recognized.
