Melody Angel at Rainbow Summer: HIGHLIGHT
Dubbed “the Future of the Blues” by the Chicago Reader newspaper, Melody Angel is a powerhouse vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter born and raised on the south side of Chicago. With strong, no-nonsense vocals and thoughtful lyrics that reflect her passion for racial and gender justice, Angel’s singular sound draws upon elements of R&B, rock, folk, and funk, all layered on a strong bed of Chicago blues.
Melody’s uncompromising music builds on Chicago blues’ legacy of innovation with such verve that last year the Chicago Sun-Times dubbed her “Chicago’s next blues star.”
In 2014, Melody scored a regular gig at the legendary Rosa’s Lounge, and since 2016 she has headlined at the world-famous Chicago Blues Festival. Chicago blues, she says, “is my legacy … it runs through my veins.”
