Biography

Theo Angell is the son of a minister who grew up in rural Oregon. His
sound is unclassifiable, but makes allusions to shape song, spirituals,
bluegrass and the blues with some off the wall mysterious psychedelic
sensibility overseeing the mood. His albums contain a combination of
calliope-like polyphonic vocals followed by mournful dirges shot
through with a cartoon foghorn melancholy. (-Maria Levitsky / WFMU) "The
music sounds like hallucinogenic campfire songs with a UFO hovering
above the treeline. There are both crawling dirges and scampering
ditties here"   (Todd Simmons in an article about Theo Angell's album Auraplinth)
