"Such a great lyricist." Peter Cunnah, D:Ream.
An English/German hybrid brought up in Scotland, Angela was taught to play violin by her dance orchestra leader grandfather. However, at 17 she accidentally chopped the top off her ring finger and couldn‘t hold down a string any more. She went into theatre instead where she also sang, then - choosing to connect with people in a different way - she developed a respected professional career in personal development. Inevitably she started performing again and became an accomplished multi-genre songwriter-producer-artist.
"Beautifully crafted, original, distinctive and expressive." Paul Stanborough: record producer (Guy Chambers).
Angela's productions are reminiscent of Bjork, Portishead and Massive Attack, and the haunting lyrics bring to mind Kate Bush, Imogen Heap and Stevie Nicks. She crafts her unique experimental sound with a chilled lounge vibe and floating vocals, undercut by effects that send shivers down your spine as do intriguing lyrics that reveal something darker.
She is currently working on her next two albums: an acoustic jazz collection and a neo-Soul project.
“Haunting yet soulful voice that will stand the hairs straight up on the back of your neck.” Plugged In Switched On Promotions.
