Let's go with contemporary, caps lettering (though not too masculine) with just a slight hint of folk elements. Maybe one or two spots of detailing, and not within the font itself. I like the large "A"s and the circular design to tie it all together as this will go on merchandise.
Again, I like bold simplicity. This logo will be used to promote my new record, which is about breaking free, starting over, bravery, defiance, and healing. It's titled, "Second Wind", though I'd like this logo to carry over into future musical works, so we don't need to make it album-specific. I've attached some photos that might help. Please see my website: http://www.angelasoffe.com for more ideas on my brand.
This logo will be used for merchandise so it needs to be something that looks good on hats, t-shirts, beanies, etc. Thank you!
