ANGELA CAROLE BROWN
Los Angeles native Angela Carole Brown has been a veteran of the L.A. music scene for over two decades as a vocalist, recording artist, and songwriter. She has recorded voice-overs, movie cues, jingles, and CDs for herself and other artists, among them Josh Groban's hit single "You Raise Me Up" on his Closer CD for Warner Bros. Records; for South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker; and for the independent film Funny Money, starring Chevy Chase. She has worked theatre, clubs, concert halls, television, and radio, in the U.S. , Europe, and Asia.
Her singing career began by joining various bar bands; and in 1984, won the grand prize in the first-ever (to become annual) Stardom Pursuit singing contest sponsored by the old legendary Rose Tattoo Cabaret in Los Angeles. In 1994, she authored, composed, and starred Off-Broadway in her critically lauded one-woman show, The Purple Sleep Café, at Primary Stages' 45th Street Theatre in New York City. For seven years, Angela was "Miss Thing" to select Los Angeles audiences, through the release of two CDs, Air Surréal, and It's Alive!, for which she created the artwork that serve as their covers; a slot on Music Connection's Best Unsigned Acts List, and as L.A. Weekly's "Music Pick of the Week" in 2000.
