Over the past decade, California-based bassist, songwriter and educator Angeline Saris has developed a reputation for being an in-demand touring and session bassist, who has worked with an acclaimed collection of musicians and producers including Grammy Award-winning producer Naranda Michael Walden, Ernest Ranglin, Zepparella, The Celebration of Bowie Tour with Todd Rundgren, Adrian Belew, Spacehog’s Royston Langdon and Fishbone‘s Angelo Moore. Saris has also shared the stage with Carlos Santana, Ronnie Spector, Dionne Warwick, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Richie Sambora, Orianthi, Steven Adler, Neal Schon and a lengthy list of others.
Saris showcased her talent as a songwriter with ANGELEX‘s 2018 debut Tight Lips, which received glowing praise from Bass Player Magazine, who wrote: “Her vibe on the album is that of a musician finally creating her own musical identity, after years of playing other people’s material–and it’s a sound that suits her well.”
“Come Undone,” sees Saris boldly stepping out into the spotlight as a solo artist, as it’s the first single she’s releasing under her own name. The track, which features soulful vocals from Naté The Soulsanger and Sandra Pippins is a slinky feminist anthem built around Saris’ dexterous and funky Patrice Rushen and Bootsy Collins-like bass lines, and a remarkably catchy hook. Inspired by Saris’ own experiences as a woman in the music industry, “Come Undone” is a kiss-off to misogyny — both external an internal — and the outdated ways that the world treats and perceives women that boldly says “Those old days ain’t coming back.”
Directed by Nino Fernandez, the accompanying video for “Come Undone” is slick and stylishly shot visual that showcases Saris, her incredible bass playing and her talented backing band.
