Bio

Early Years
Angie always wanted to be a drummer since she could remember. Growing up in Fort Wayne, IN, she took to music early, but studied flute through high school. It wasn’t until her college years that Angie decided to follow her drumming passion – she bought a kit and taught herself how to play. After graduating and a career in meteorology, Angie wound up in Louisville, KY which enabled her to heavily pursue music. She played for a Sony recording artist, several cover bands, and was a session drummer, as well. Her main band, CatFight (original pop/punk rock), received quite the local and regional following, gaining the support from Little Heart Records of Louisville, KY, under which they released the EP CatFight (2013). While that was taking off, Angie took off for Nashville, TN in 2012 for a promotion in her career.
Move to Nashville
After immersing herself in the Nashville music scene, Angie joined forces with artist Leticia Wolf, fellow Catfight member Erica Sellers, and two other musicians to form The Dead Deads, a heavy, hard rock/pop band. Having just formed in late 2013, The Dead Deads have garnered quite a bit of attention, from Page Hamilton of Helmet/David Bowie, to Chuck Garric of Alice Cooper, to Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick and to Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. As a result of The Dead Deads’ quick rise, Angie and her band have been on several national tours (Halestorm, P.O.D., Bush, Chevelle, the Motorboat and Shiprocked cruises) and recorded two full-length albums, “Rainbeau” (2014) and “For Your Obliteration” (2016), produced by Page Hamilton.
Playing Style
As many drummers, Angie has several musical influences, including the Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Green Day, etc. These come through in her live performances, which showcase her true craft and energetic, bombastic style, similar to her favorite drummers Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Arejay Hale and Tre Cool. Her high-energy, heart-pounding live performance is a must-see, and her passion behind the kit will make a fan out of anyone.
