Michalangela & Friends

October 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $10

Michalangela, whose full name is Michal Angela Wilson, is a highly appealing and increasingly significant singer based in Portland, Oregon. Her style is based in jazz although she is also stretching out towards soul music. Her debut recording, Portland Rain, was a major step forward in her career.

The young singer studied classical voice at the University of Idaho’s School of Music since they did not have a jazz program. A few months after she graduated, she moved to Portland, Oregon. Within a short time, Michalangela was part of the Portland music scene. She met the pianist Jonathan Swanson who not only became part of her group but had a recording studio that he offered her the freedom to use. The result was her first recording, Portland Rain.

“Portland Rain came together pretty organically,” remembers Michalangela. “I wrote songs and learned a lot about recording, using some of the best players in Portland.” In addition to writing “Portland Rain” and “Hello Mister,” and co-composing “Change My Plans” with Swanson, she recorded her own fresh versions of such standards as “Dream A Little Dream Of Me,” Alec Wilder’s “I’ll Be Around,” “What A Little Moonlight Can Do” and “The Things We Did Last Summer.” “I particularly like ‘A Fine Spring Morning’ which one of my favorite singers, Blossom Dearie, sang. She never showed off at all and instead simply sang the song and expressed the lyrics. That is what I always try to do.”  CALL FOR RESERVATIONS 503.223.0070.
