Bio

Angel Rattay is starting to make waves in the music world with her unique sound and obvious passion for energetic country music. Live performances with her band are always fresh and exciting, and leave her audiences wanting more. Her band consists of six of the most talented musicians in the Midwest, many of whom have performed onstage with some of the biggest names in the industry.

Born and raised in Kansas City, Angel comes from strong musical roots. Her mother is one of six children and was the youngest in the family’s traveling band. Each year at family reunions, guitars came out, and everyone would join in singing around the fire pit. One year when Angel was about four years old, all of the children were proudly showing off church songs for their grandmother. Angel eagerly got up in front of everyone to show off her song choice. To her mother’s slight embarrassment, Angel belted out “Hit the Road Jack”…and so it began.

Her first public performance in fourth grade was singing Anne Murray’s “A Little Good News Today” at a school talent show. Angel’s second big break came at her mom’s restaurant on Truman Lake in Missouri. Angel’s mom brought in live music on the weekends, and when the regular acts would take a break Angel would take the stage.

It took some strong urging from her mother, a woman Angel says, “Doesn’t like to take ‘no’ for an answer.”

But after a couple of appearances she started to fill in on a regular basis and soon became a featured performer.

Angel’s ever-growing popularity has led her to perform at clubs, fairs, rodeos and festivals in the Midwest, including the American Royal and the Country Stampede. She has also started to gain popularity internationally, with airplay in Australia, New Zealand and Sweden.

FLYING BLIND, Angel’s debut release, is a full length CD with original songs written by such acclaimed writers as Tommy Lee James (“She’s My Kind Of Rain”), Tia Sillers (“I Hope You Dance”), James Slater (“In My Daughter’s Eyes”), Robin Lerner (“This Kiss”) and Sandy Knox (“Why Haven’t I Heard From You Lately”) to name a few.

Produced by Tom Harding at Tombstone Recording in Nashville, FLYING BLIND is refreshingly honest in revealing who Angel Rattay is. “The most time consuming part of the process was just picking the songs,” Angel says. “I think I spent nine months just narrowing down the hundreds of songs to these fourteen. I wanted to LOVE them - it’s my heart and soul in that album. It IS me.”

Releasing her first album independently has allowed Angel to put her heart and soul into every song on the CD without making sacrifices, or having someone lead her in a direction she wasn't feeling.

With FLYING BLIND completed, what are Angel’s future plans? “To get out there! I’d like to do as many live shows as we can, work on airplay and just get more exposure. Hopefully the fans will love and connect with these songs as much as I have.”
