Why Hire Angie?

1. Originality

“Every festival I perform at I look for someone I don’t know about who knocks it out of the park. That someone at Live From the Rock was Angie Nussey. First it was her wonderful vocals that caught my attention and drew me to her concert and then when I really listened, I discovered an innovative, courageous performer who knows all too well when we speak of the truth in our own lives, it will resonate with our audience.  Her command of the stage and her rapport with her audience was nothing short of masterful. Nussey’s songs are both powerful and entertaining and I for one would go to a festival just to see her.”

2. Momentum

Angie had taken some time away from the music business from 2012 – 2015, but recommitted in 2016 and has been building momentum ever since. She is preparing to release her 7th album in the spring of 2018.

3. Experience

With a 15 year history of incredible performances both on stage and in-studio Angie brings a wealth of experience to the stage. Working with and sharing stages with artists such as Jose Feliciano, Michael Burgess, Shannon Butcher, Ben Sures, and Anne Lindsay and bands such as The Barenaked Ladies,  The Creaking Tree String Quartet, Mr. Something Something and many others. She often performs as a solo act (playing keyboard, guitar, and looping pedal) but when budget allows, she has an incredible backing band of established musicians. Here is a list of a few of the venue’s Angie has performed over the years.

3. Diversity

She has an entire album dedicated to Silly Songs… you can find it here, and her producer’s ear makes her a great backing vocalist or pianist for other acts.
