“Whatever Angela Saini is doing, she’s doing it right. Her attitude, style, body language and voice are so classy and feminine, yet so rock star at the same time.” (Lithium Magazine-Vanessa Markov)
Toronto-based folk pop artist Angela Saini is all about second chances and empowering others. Her ability to combine humanistic and honest themes laden with catchy hooks and memorable melodies make her entertaining as well as relatable, two amazing qualities for any musician to have. With two European and five Canadian treks under her belt, BBC Radio is calling Angela Saini “massively talented” after the release of her sunshine-soaked single “Living on The Bright Side.” Currently in rotation on the Pop Adult station on Stingray Digital across Canada, Angela is a 2017 Toronto Independent Music Award Winner and blogTO named her in their “Top 5 Folk Acts to Watch.”
The Calgary native got her guitar chops early on when she formed her first band at the age of 15, with her Austrian mother and Indian father driving her to gigs in bars before she was legally allowed to frequent them. She was the frontwoman of her high school rock band Supernal, which catapulted Angela to Toronto after 4 independent releases and thousands of kilometres touring. The rocker-turned-songstress released her first solo EP in 2012, after her refined songwriting skills and natural vocal ability got the attention of Tragically Hip drummer Johnny Fay. Demos together became pre-production for “Cake and Callouses” and shortly after, her second EP “Leap” was released in 2013. Two singles and a live album later, she is currently recording her upcoming album with single “Right Here Beside You” set for release in spring 2018. Heartfelt lyrics with a genuinely positive outlook reflect her life-affirming perspective: the road may be untraveled, but you’ll never know if you don’t take a chance.
