Contorno // Angela James
Add to Calendar
Led by songwriters John Gargiulo and Lee Ketch, Contorno melds jangle rock with explosive Crazy Horse guitar workouts and healthy doses of Chicago alt-country twang. Their debut LP, "Won't Be Gone," is due out in 2020.
Angela James’ music brings to mind the rich, deep voices of artists like Patsy Cline and Rosanne Cash with the narrative sensibility of more modern female troubadours like Neko Case and Gillian Welch. Her music has been called “smoldering and gorgeous” by the Chicago Reader and she has been featured in the Chicago Tribune, WBEZ, and Tiny Mix Tapes. Born and raised in TN, with sojourns in Mississippi and Brazil, Angela lives in Chicago with her partner, visual artist and curator Jordan Martins, and daughter Hattie.
