Psychedelic-Americana Artist

Commanding Twang-Pop Sass

 

Why you should see this show…

Angela and her band are the real deal, delivering contemporary rock ‘n’ roll spiced with a healthy dose of good old fashion southern country flavor. Their sound is similar to bluesy classic rock like Thin Lizzy, but also carries a distinctly Southern sound like The Allman Brothers. Marked by Angela Perley’s sultry, twangy vocals and guitarist Chris Connor’s electric-fuzz wizardry, the band creates an enduring classic-rock sound that is appropriately road-weary, far from trendy, and still building steam.
 

Angela Perley Bio
Angela Perley’s music radiates with electric guitars, swooning vocals, and songs that split the difference between rock & roll, Americana, and dreamy psychedelia. The band comprised of Angela Perley (vocals, electric guitar, and sometimes musical saw), Chris Connor (lead guitar), and a rotating team of drummers and bassists for live shows, have released five EPs and two full length albums. Performing over 120 shows a year, the band has built a slow and steady grass-roots following, especially in Ohio. The band released a live in-studio EP of songs, Stereogram Sessions, July 27th of 2018. Stereogram Sessions features extended and alternate versions of previously recorded songs. A third studio album is in the works, scheduled for a spring, 2019 release.
 

 

Thor Platter Bio
Cleveland singer-songwriter Thor Platter is a loyal purveyor of Americana music for many reasons. “The tradition and history of American music have influenced me my entire life; it encompasses many sounds and styles from many different eras,” he explains. “Above all, it is just good music to your ears.”

With his new album Take Time, set for release October 27, Platter is setting out to showcase his mastery of the genre, as well as capture the energy, spirit, and infectious harmonies of his live shows. Platter’s gentle, affecting vocals – which have earned him numerous comparisons to Willie Nelson – are carried along freely by the accompaniment of rollicking banjo and harmonica. Fans of the classic ‘70s singer-songwriter genre will delight in Platter’s seamless transitions from toe-tapping jams to sweetly confident ballads throughout the set’s 10 tracks.

Take Time was recorded and produced by David Mayfield at Tiger Spa in Akron, Ohio. Since most of Platter’s shows are performed as a trio (Paul Lewis on bass, Paul Kovac on Banjo), the album takes care to show off the mellow yet sparkling synergy that arises from a smaller, tight arrangement.

Platter, who grew up in Buffalo, NY, had a childhood seeped in rich musical influences – from Woodie Guthrie to Bob Dylan to Flatt & Scruggs – but his biggest inspiration to date has been Neil Young. “The way [Young] lived his life, the way he recorded, not being that mainstream guy–that was a heavy influence on me,” he explains. “I’ve never wanted to be a pop star.”

True to Young’s experimental and personally driven nature, Platter approaches songcraft without specific genre boundaries, choosing instead to allow his music to evolve instinctually. He made a fast impact on Cleveland’s music scene upon moving there from Buffalo in 2008, releasing a debut solo LP in 2013 combining gospel, blues, and rock influences with bittersweet, character-driven lyrics.

Platter has been the featured performer at multiple large local music festivals, and is a seasoned roadman, keeping up a steady schedule of regional gigs while continually working on new music. He will be touring in support of Take Time throughout Fall 2017.
