"Angela McCluskey is a force of nature."
- Michael Jackson
Angela McCluskey is a force of nature. When she walks into a room, all eyes turn as lights dim and lit candles suddenly appear. You just get this feeling she’s bringing a different century with her; a time when great artists sat together in cafes arguing passionately about the very meaning of passion.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Angela first achieved recognition as the singer of the much-adored LA band Wild Colonials, with whom she released three albums, Fruit of Life(1993), This Can’t Be Life (1996) and Reel Life in 2000. In that same year, Angela also released Curio, an album of remarkable covers she recorded with husband Paul Cantelon, Lili Haydn, and cellist Martin Tillman. In 2004, Angela led French outfit, Telepopmusik, to the Grammys with a nomination for Best Dance Recording for their smash hit “Breathe.”
Angela McCluskey is featured on the new Azealia Banks song “Ice Princess,” which is currently the most downloaded song from Azealia Banks’ highly-anticipated debut LP Broke With Expensive Taste! The song samples the production and chorus of Morgan Page‘s dance hit “In The Air (feat. Angela McCluskey)”, which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay Chart and resided in the Top 10 for an impressive 25 weeks!
Angela is also one half of the duo St. Bernadette, alongside Kiran Shahani from Bitter:Sweet and Button Pusher. Kiran is also a founding member of Supreme Beings of Leisure.
