Angelle is an R&B/Soul singer-songwriter out of Brooklyn, New York. Growing up in a musical family, she was always encouraged to follow her dream and aspire to great things in life, as well as in music. By the time Angelle was five years of age, she knew that singing was what she wanted to do, and by the age of ten she was writing her own music. Her biggest influence might have been her father, who believed in her dream from the time she was a little girl - but in fact, she feels that everybody in her life has contributed to her creative goals in some way, shape or form. Not least of all, two of her uncles enjoyed great commercial success in Haitian music, a legacy she is determined to carry on.

Angelle has won several awards for her songwriting, starting in high school with the Grammy Day competition, and more recently making it to the semi-finals in the Song of The Year contest for her original song Why. Inspired by the iconic voices of Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Motown, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Mary J Blige, Jazmine Sullivan, Lauryn Hill, Patti Labelle, Marvin Gaye, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Sara Vaughn, she dreams of playing the part of Aretha in a yet-to-be-made biopic, and hopes to one day sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Her debut EP Rêvé (Life’s But a Dream) was released in 2015, and promises to be a moment like so many others in her life, one that leads her on to something greater. Angelle is a graduate of the University of Albany, and is proud to have been part of the Open Door Scholarship program.
