Angela Bingham is an American jazz vocalist who has been a singer her entire life. She began studying piano and performing from the American songbook at age 5 in her home of the San Francisco Bay Area. She studied jazz in her teens and early 20s, and began working professionally as a solo artist in 2000 while living in Salt Lake City. Her singing is characterized by the qualities of honest expression, solid swinging and an emphasis on the blues. With a clear, steady tone and a penchant for improvisation, she communicates a song’s lyric honestly – “as if she were speaking to you directly, over cocktails or supper.” (David R. Halliday, former jazz radio DJ)
Angela moved to New York City in 2005, where she held down a monthly residency for five years at the now (sadly defunct) Total Wine Bar, garnering a delightfully loyal fan base. During this time, she began working with many of New York’s most heavyweight jazz musicians, and sitting in at venues throughout the city. She also held down a steady performance schedule at New York’s famed Bar Next Door, a coveted venue for New York jazz musicians.
Angela has released two studio recordings on the Lone Peak Sound label: “Everything I Love,” a duo album with the virtuosic guitarist Kenji Aihara, and “The Night We Called It a Day,” co-produced and co-headlined by Utah’s well-known tenor saxophonist David Halliday.
