Bio

As frontwoman/songwriter for Weimar Berlin-inspired rock band The Love Markets and a proud member of Actor's Equity since 2000, Angie has performed on Seattle's top stages (The 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT, Village Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre, Seattle Rep) and across the U.S. (Houston's Theatre Under The Stars, Ordway in St. Paul, American Musical Theatre of San Jose). With The Love Markets, Angie's record releases include WORLD OF YOUR DREAMS (2013) and BEAUTY FACTORY (2016); her film credits include penning screenplays and songs for award-winning feature films GORY GORY HALLEULJAH (in which she also starred) and SWITCHMAS, starring Elliott Gould. Thanks to musical theatre, Angie's been cut in half by a magician, pulled around in a cart by a pony, shared scenes with dogs, rabbits and boa constrictors, roller-skated onstage, worked with Charles Strouse and Judy Kaye, and been tossed in the air by a baseball team. As an indie film actress, she's been burned at the stake, fought over by a clown and a mime, ridden a cannon, risen from the dead, and played Mrs. Claus in outer space. As an actor-musician, she's played a beehived housewife who pounds a mean piano (5th Avenue Theatre, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story), a singing Nazi prostitute who accompanies herself on accordion (5th Avenue and regional tour, Cabaret), and rock star Jesse Dove and blues-belting Bertha McKellan (workshops: Citizen Ruth at Balagan Theatre, Cumberland Blues at Village Theatre). In 2017, Angie was seen reprising her role of Hattie in a new production of Go, Dog! Go! at Seattle Children's Theatre; returning to the role of Molly in Unsinkable Molly Brown for Showtunes Theatre Company at Benaroya Hall; appearing as guest artist and bandleader for Sandbox Radio at Town Hall; and performing with The Love Markets at ACT Theatre and on TV's "ArtZone With Nancy Guppy". In 2018, Angie's projects included The 5th Avenue Theatre's NEXTFest; creating/performing songs for history cabaret Bell & Battery, funded by a grant from 4Culture; and creating a piece with The Love Markets in collaboration with UMO Ensemble for ACT Theatre. In the first half of 2019, Angie can be seen performing her songs with The Love Markets at The Triple Door, Burlesco Notturno, and Sandbox Radio; performing in “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” at Seattle Children’s Theatre; and developing and writing a television pilot for Von Piglet Films.
