Angela Strehli

Vocalist Angela Strehli is an incredibly gifted singer and songwriter, a Texas blues historian, impresario and fan. Born in Lubbock, Texas, Strehli comes out of the same windswept town that produced Buddy Holly, Joe Ely, Waylon Jennings and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Inspired by the blues and R&B music that she heard on late-night radio, Angela took up the harmonica and bass before becoming a full-time vocalist.

Her blues epiphany came, fittingly enough, in a church. An avid music follower, Strehli had already checked out incarnations of the modern blues scene everywhere from Chicago to San Francisco to Austin. She was involved in music but not totally committed until the soul-stirring passion of a down-home Texas black church service convinced her to follow her heart and lift her voice to testify through the blues.
