Our feature this week is Angela Masciale. Angela is a poet, singer-songwriter and guitarist who has a hauntingly beautiful voice, folk-classical in sound, ranging from alto to soprano. Her soulful original songs are composed of exquisite melodies, woven with mellifluous, poetic and stirring lyrics. Her songs are landscapes, reflections of nature, healing messages, and stories about the traumas and victories of living. Angela's voice in both her singing and poetry is palliative, a sweetener to allow the hard knock and blunt truths of existence to be serenaded and elucidated. She will often start her set with the use of tibetan or crystal singing bowls and healing chants.
Angela has played at numerous venues, such as Club Passim (MA), The Me & Thee Coffeehouse (MA), Natick Center for the Arts (MA), Emerson Umbrella for the Arts (MA), Marblehead Festival of Arts (MA), Java Jo's (in Milton and JP, MA), and the Nameless Coffeehouse (MA), First Night Worcester (MA). She has released three CDs — the first in January 2000, titled, «Time Will Tell», and the second, in September 2004, «Ancient Voices», and «Take Back The Land» in November 2008.Angela's musical style is folk, and musical influences include Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell.
Open Mic sign-up starts at 7:00. Spoken Word artists and musicians welcomed.
