If one could imagine an uncompromising union between Josh Groban, Sarah McLaughlin and The Barenaked Ladies, it would only begin to set the stage for this unique Canadian talent. Award winning recording artist, Angie Nussey grew up in the small town of Lively, Ontario where she learned to play piano at the age of 6. Soon after she was writing and recording her own songs. Although best known for her emotional, philosophical and at times autobiographical ballads, Nussey doesn’t miss an opportunity to poke fun at everyday situations, the human condition, not to mention herself. Her world-class performances never fail to take her audiences on an emotional journey from totally ridiculous to deeply intense, and her songwriting career has been very much the same.
“I’ve never been able to sit down and write song with specific moods,” admits Nussey.” I just write when I feel like it and if I played back all the songs in the order they were written, I’d seem rather neurotic. I’m coming to a place where I can embrace this emotional roller coaster and love myself for being the sensitive character that I am. I can cry about pain and suffering and then laugh whole heartedly at a joke within the same five minutes. That’s the real me and that’s how my songs and albums come out.”
