St. Ange is best described as a musical sponge that's been gathering melodic bits and pieces from Casio demo tracks to bebop licks and beyond. Their 11 track debut album Second Nature, on which front woman, Angela Galuppo, takes her shiny new self-producing/lyricist/composer tricycle out for a ride, is a meeting ground where jazz and pop music collide and become instant BFFs. With the combined energy and musical influences of the 5 core members (who all met while studying jazz at Concordia University), St. Ange is the perfect addition to the neo jazz wave firing up the music scene. Drawing inspiration from new jazzers Esperanza Spalding and Gretchen Parlato, Motown, singer/songwriters, epic 70's power ballads and the Montreal sound, St. Ange combines the vocal sensibilities of jazz with with a dreamy touch of pop. St. Ange is a place for pop kids and jazz nerds to say hi, dance, cry on each others' shoulders and realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined.
