Angie and the Nightmares are a story-driven Americana trio based on California's central coast. From sultry grooves to driving train-beats, their music builds on the foundation of American roots traditions to form it's own unique sound. Folk, country, and blues elements invoke nostalgia while modern subject matter and awkward honesty place their work squarely in the present.
Tales of love, family and misadventure comprise their 2022 independent release Foxfire. Buy it now!
Raised in a small town on California's central coast, Angie Nightmare grew up on bluegrass records and tall tales.
Following in the footsteps of greats like Tom Waits and Dave Alvin, Angie's songs mine the bittersweet vein of American folk narrative, blending the self-deprecation of down-and-out country with modern ironic snark. By mixing the storytelling tradition of Cline and Cash with the self-reflexive humor of modern artists like Ben Folds and Lily Allen, she bends the framework of folk, country, and blues to tell her own unique stories.
