ANGELA MEYER BIO OPTIONS:

Angela Meyer was raised in rural Iowa by a family centered around country music. Her new album, “Legions & Legends” is a collection of 10 stories that pay homage to the Midwestern way of life. Often cyclical, this journey is paved by ancestral footsteps and lit by neon signs. Along the way, we trip over the roots of our family trees, finding routine in bad habits,  falling in love and setting the tone for future generations. At times, we resent the places we come from, but we never leave- they built us a legacy.

 

Angela pulls in the crowd with a sweet voice and brutal honesty.  She knows what it's like to be in the audience, her earliest memories taking her back to being a child dancing around a smoky beer tent at the Iowa State Fair while her mama sang on stage.  Even before she could talk, Angela was singing along with the radio and introduced to her musical heroes through her grandparents’ record player in their Iowa farmhouse. At 10 years old, they gave her a guitar for Christmas, but it was so large she had to lay it across her lap to learn how to play it.  She finally revisited the guitar at fifteen, starting to write her own songs and creating the foundation that has built her dream into a lifelong career.  Find her new album “Legions & Legends” anywhere music is bought or streamed.
