About

ANGELA REED

Angela’s eclectic pop/folk music has been compared to a wide array of artists including Annie Lennox, Joni Mitchell, Brandi Carlile, KT Tunstall, Joan Osbourne, Ani Difranco, Sarah MacLaughlan, and Jeff Buckley.

Explosive and elegant, Angela Reed sings from the heart. This Brooklyn-based songstress has her roots in Seattle where she developed as a competent lyricist, a personal performer, and a beautiful example of artistry at work.

Her love of music has taken her from Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA) to Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA (where she obtained her Bachelor’s in Music.) Angela has gone from singing solos in choir to performing her own original music across the country, making an impression along her way with grace, confidence, and class.

She has performed with many accomplished artists including Al Anderson (NRBQ), Cheryl Wheeler, Kenny White (NY songwriter/producer-Marc Cohn/Peter Wolf), Kelly Harland (Etta James/Beach Boys), and Jonathan Edwards. She has been fortunate to work with and study under such greats as Catherine Russell (David Bowie/Jackson Brown), Jovino Santos Neto (Grammy nominated Brazilian artist/composer), and Julian Priester (Herbie Hancock/Sun Ra).

In May 2009 Angela participated in the Beatles Complete On Ukulele Project. Angela’s contribution, Why Don’t We Do It In The Road, was produced by Project co-founder David Barratt. Additionally, Angela sings background vocals on the Kenny White contribution Don’t Pass Me By.

Reed sings background vocals on the 2010 Kenny White release Comfort In The Static.

Angela recorded and co-produced her debut studio album Undertone with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Paul Speer at Rainstorm Studio (Bellevue, WA). Undertone was independently released in 2006.

Angela is also featured on the Paul Hanover Band’s 2006 release Under Your Skin in the duet I’m Gone, along with background vocals on multiple songs on the record.

She has recorded background vocals for the 2008 demo by Brendon Hackett (AVAST 2/Seattle, WA).

Angela has done vocal production/coaching for War Pigeon (2008 release of Glacier) and Art Leonard. She also has some commercial session experience singing lead and backing vocals (Elliot Bay Recording in Seattle, WA and New York City).

Angela Reed’s life is all about the music. She makes you believe in love and life as much as she does. Please join her and many other artists at live shows to experience the real thing. Find out about performances near you on www.AngelaReed.com by clicking on the Calendar.
