MUSICIANS IN ISOLATION- MELODY ANGEL
Australian Musician’s Greg Phillips caught up with Chicago based blues guitarist singer-songwriter Melody Angel to talk about life in isolation, her album ‘Angels & Melodies’, gear, career and her fond memories of her two trips to Bluesfest
Melody Angel is from the south side of Chicago. Rock N Roll and the Blues took over her life at age 7. Melody blames the following artists for her obsession: Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Slash, Chuck Berry, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Melody’s mom got her a Fender Stratocaster guitar from a pawnshop at age 15, Melody then taught herself to play and never looked back, in fact she plays the same guitar to this day. Melody Angel has played all over the world, and continues to defy the odds as an independent artist. Currently touring to promote her 2nd full length album, Angels & Melodies, featuring songs like,The Boogie, American Dream, and Dance With Me Baby.
