Biography

Ever since she was a little girl Angela knew one thing for sure: she wanted to be singer. Her mother was a singer in a popular soul band and that influenced Angela a great deal. Listening to her mothers albums of vocalists like Donny Hathaway, Minni Ripperton, Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle and Whitney Houston Angela knew she wanted to become a singer as well.

At the age of fifteen Angela started partaking in talent shows and joined the girl group Dope Inspiration. The group performed in the popular Escape Venue and even was the opening show for the American group Silk. A few years later things got really serious when Angela auditioned at the well known Cruise Control Studios, breeding place for successful Dutch R&B groups like Dignity, Re-play and Sat-R-Day.

After a successful auditioning Angela participated in Solid, a R&B girl group. Solid was a well known name in the Dutch R&B scene in the mid 90�s and was part of the Dutch R&B album No Sweat. A popular compilation of several R&B-groups. A No Sweat tour through Holland followed with the song �Down with you� by producers Mike & Roni (Soulplanet studio).

That is when Koos van Dijk, manager of the late and famous Dutch rock legend Herman Brood, saw Angela and Solid-colleague Wendy perform. He was so impressed that he asked them to join Herman Brood and band The Wild Romance for the project �Herman Brood With soul�. Solid performed at Herman Brood�s birthday at the Paradiso and did a tour through Germany with Herman Brood.
