Genre: New Age
Angela Ammons is a female singer and songwriter from Austin, Texas and sister to actor Christopher Reagan Ammons. She began her career singing karaoke, especially Bette Midler's song The Rose. A few years later and a few inches taller, she outgrew her room in Austin, Texas, and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. By signing her name to a Universal Records contract, she forfeited the typical teenage dream of football games and high school prom and made her own dream come true.
When recording for her first album began in 2000, Angela struggled against the pressure to adapt her sound to the pop-princess trend that was so prevalent at the time. More than a hook with catchy rhythms, her songs explored emotions and issues that were missing from the billboard Top 40. She rebelled, determined to keep her vision intact, no matter the consequences. The singer’s self-titled album was finally completed and released in September 2001—into the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
