Angela Hagenbach Kansas City Jazz Artist Angela Hagenbach is Amazon Records' premier recording artist. This versatile Kansas City native sings everything from swinging, straight-ahead jazz and blues to sensual, rhythmic Latin Jazz with seemingly effortless agility. Her lush contralto spans a range of nearly three octaves, and her rich life experience contributes to the original compositions and lyrics featured on her latest recordings.
In 1989, with an unexpected introduction to the music of Sarah Vaughan, Angela Hagenbach decided to focus on music full time. Only a few years before, you might have found this Kansas City native working in the fashion capitals of the world, building a successful career as a professional model. In 1986 Angela returned to her hometown and began to pursue another lifelong interest - music. She joined a gospel choir and quickly became a featured soloist. Still, jazz wasn't on her agenda, until she heard Sarah singing "Black Coffee."
From that point on. Angela has been determined to make the most of her musical talents, singing jazz in live performances and on recordings for her own label, Amazon Records.
