Biography

Scottish-born chanteuse and force of nature Angela McCluskey returns with her first solo album in years, You Could Start a Fight in an Empty House, her much-anticipated follow-up to her acclaimed solo debut, The Things We Do. The album’s first single, “Handle with Grace,” reunites McCluskey with her colleagues from French electropop trio Telepopmusik with incredible results; a video for the track is currently in production with directors Alex Takacs and Joe Nankin of Young Replicant (M83’s “We Own the Sky” video).

Available now through iTunes, the album will be available as a physical release on June 8, 2010 through Bernadette Records.
Known first for her work with the LA-based group Wild Colonials, it was McCluskey’ s Grammy-nominated dance hit, “Breathe,” recorded with Telepopmusik and picked up by Mitsubishi for use in a popular TV campaign that introduced millions to her earthy, unique voice. Along the way, McCluskey has also supported R.E.M. on tour and performed with everyone from Little Richard to Glasvegas to – most recently – New York City cabaret stars The Citizen’s Band.

Tastemaker radio station KCRW has already featured “So Good,” the album’s opening track, as a “Today’s Top Tune” download. McCluskey’s February 19, 2010 performance on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” was so popular it will be available as an iTunes podcast starting March 5 and running for two weeks.

    In awe...I need to experience Angela McCluskey's voice LIVE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! I'm shyting bricks of insane happiness that's warming my soul. As I listen to her syllabicate every word with an effortless perfection, I'm wondering if my heart is going to slowly explode with shock? GIRL, you can really SANNNNG and your voice hits every pit of my weary heart. Jesus..Yeah, HE IS singing through you (didn't mean to offend if you are Jewish but I'm Christian. It's all love) xo

    Im listening to her music for the first time, her album of covers Curio. Her voice is absolutely killing me. This is the singer and album ive been waiting to hear all my life. Some of my most favourite jazz standards sung in the most heartfelt, honest way possible. Angela's voice is beyond words. Chills down my spine the entire time. Im soo happy to have discovered her. Shes sensational!

    Why is this woman not doing jazz music, for God's sake?
