Hometown: Muscle Shoals, AL
Dream Duets: Greg Allman or Tom Petty or Earl Thomas Conley
Angela has always loved music and musical instruments, which were all over her house as a child. Her parents were both into music, as well as her three older sisters who sang and played. Angela was very shy around most people and waited until 13 before singing publicly at a school talent contest. With a win in the contest, the adrenaline rush was intense and hasn't quit since.
Through the years, Angela worked hard to be better herself at her craft, playing everywhere she could. From talent contests to bars to weddings and funerals (really), Angela did it all. Over the past year, Angela has been writing and recording with some of her local idols such as Jimmy Nutt, who encouraged her to go to The House of Fame and get to work.
