Alt-Country/Roadhouse Rock/Amplified Americana • $5 Cover at Door
Angela Perley makes music for roadtrips across the American heartland. Rooted in cosmic alt-country, roadhouse rock & roll, witchy-woman psychedelia, and amplified Americana, it’s a vintage sound for the modern world, glued together by a singer/songwriter who’s played everything from dive bars to arenas.
With her new album, Turn Me Loose, she leans into the rootsy textures that have always underscored her music. Laced with pedal steel, Telecaster twang & Gibson grit, the album embraces the gray areas between genre and generation, with Perley breathing new life into her 1960s & ’70s influences. Recorded in her native Ohio, Turn Me Loose finds Perley building a dreamy world of her own, writing sharply-detailed songs filled with small towns, big cities & foggy nights pierced by her car’s high-beams.
Angela Perley has spent a decade building her audience the old-school way. She’s a tireless traveler chasing down her own horizon, steadily graduating from local gigs in her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, to national shows alongside bands like Caamp.
She’s a modern-day gypsy in platform boots. A tireless songwriter bringing the gap between personal insight and universal sentiment. And with her newest album, she’s at the top of her game, turning the highs and lows of an adulthood logged on the road into an album built for speed.
Turn her loose, indeed.
