Vehicle Out Today! 

I'm so excited to finally share my new EP Vehicle with all of you! I hope you enjoy these 5 folk songs from the heart. The music is available online across all platforms. Music is my vehicle for self-expression.


"Chains" video is live! 

I'm so happy that "Chains," the first single from my new album Vehicle, is live and out there in the world! The video was choreographed and performed by Reshma Gajjar and Nick Heitzeberg. Reshma and I have a special connection; she is "the girl in the yellow dress" from 'La La Land,' and I'm her singing voice in the film. I knew she'd be the perfect person to create a dance for this video, and I couldn't be more honored to collaborate with her. 


"Chains" is about two tangled necklaces in a jewelry box. They serve as a metaphor for people who go through difficulties in long-term relationships. A good relationship is just like an heirloom - you wouldn't toss it aside just because it becomes a little twisted. May we all be made stronger by the tangles.

Love, Angela


Vehicle comes out Friday, October 6th 

Vehicle, my new album, says hello two weeks from today - Friday, October 6th. 

Vehicle will be released one single at a time, once a month, via YouTube and streaming services with a video to accompany each song. I'm so proud of the journey I've had with this album, and I can't wait for you to journey with me in all of your literal and metaphorical vehicles over the next year. Stay tuned!
