Soulful singing: John Amatulli performs an acoustic set during the final round of Battle of the Bands at Cafe Mundo on Saturday.
By three tenths of a point, Angie Medlin beat John Amatulli in the Battle of the Bands at Café Mundo Saturday night.

"This is awesome. There is amazing talent in Greer and I would have competed for nothing," Medlin, from Gaston County, N.C., said. Medlin won $200 and a plaque signaling her as the initial champion of the contest.

Three judges voted on each performer's song originality, arrangement, stage presentation and performance. Scores were given on a 1 - 10 point basis. "It was very hard to judge between Angie and John," Chris Todd, a judge and partner in the café, said. "They both performed very well tonight."

Desiree Sayers said the contest was so tight between Medlin and Amatulli that her scorecard had them separated by only .10 of a point. "Angie fit the singer genre but she sounded a little like the Indigo Girls. I heard every word of her songs during her performances and she did quite well singing," Sayers said.

"John excelled above and beyond. He is a very strong instrumentalist. He scored high on originality and performance. When he broke his string that was a good sign. It showed he's stressing the string. I know for a fact he only changed strings two weeks ago," Sayers said.

Medlin frequently visits Café Mundo to perform. "I have been coming down in to play shows for several months," Medlin said.

Amatulli had a surprising run as a last-minute replacement for a late withdrawal. "John told me that if anything happened he would help out," Ronnie Mark, a partner in the café, said. "We had someone drop out at the last minute and John did a great job filling in."

Amatulli broke a string on his acoustic guitar during his final song. "I tried to cover it well and hoped not too many people noticed," Amatulli said. He works his family's business, Amatulli & Sons, an Oriental rug and fine furniture showroom that opened last year at 1317 W. Poinsett Street.

The contest pitted bands and soloists against each other for four weeks with Medlin and Amatulli battling in the final round Saturday night. All songs had to be original, written by the artists.

Spotlight on...Ang Medlin

performing at Tastebuds this Friday

When the music finds you, sometimes you have no choice but to follow.

For Angie Medlin, music made its presence known quietly and almost by surprise. Working in the radio industry for a number of years gave her an enormous amount of exposure to different types and styles of music. As the small station's programming director, she developed relationships with recording labels and regional A&R contacts.

Her afternoon drive show provided a launch pad for a number of new bands. She never imagined her on-air voice would be that of the artist instead of the disk jockey.

In late 1996 at an after- hours event, she was coaxed into singing for friends at a local club on karaoke night. No one, not even Angie, expected what that night might bring. The energy and excitement of the crowds' response was undeniable.

She taught herself to play guitar and slowly began to write pieces of lyrics that would one day become songs, all along continuing to practice her vocal work whereever she could.

By 2003, she was ready to step into the spotlight as the lead vocalist for "Shade," a funk-rock original band based in Charlotte. After about two years of playing the local scene, Angie decided it was time to focus on not just her vocal work, but her inner voice. The lyrics and music that she had been quietly trying to create was ready to become a reality.

In late 2007, Angie created Sid Hippo Management. This small publishing company would be the home base of her work as a songwriter and a performer. By 2008, Sid Hippo obtained ASCAP membership and manages the publishing and performing rights to 20 original songs.

In October 2008, Angie joined forces with Tom Williams to create the acoustic duo "Ang." Since then, the two have played over 60 shows and multiple benefit concerts for Relay for Life, Second Harvest Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity. Ang is a full time working/traveling band, with shows booked across the Southeast.

Find Ang's schedule and more at www.myspace.com/angmedlin. Ang will be appearing 6:30-9 p.m. Friday at Tastebuds Coffee and Tea, 106 N. Main St. in downtown Salisbury. The duo's newly released CD will be available that night.
