Angelica Rockne plays rock & roll that “belongs on an AM car radio on a two lane highway.” (the Bay Bridged) Her warm, evocative voice is constantly teetering on the border of beauty and grit; of classic country and desert rock. You could think of her as Stevie Nicks backed by Crazy Horse or Mazzy Star gone country. Whatever the comparison, there is an undeniable authenticity that can be heard in songs like “When I See You” and “Joshua” from her recent self-released 7”. She spent fall of 2016 wrapping up her debut album, Queen of San Antonio, recorded at Tim Green’s Louder Studios in Grass Valley, CA. The record, recorded mostly live, is loose, raw, and thickly layered with pedal steel (played masterfully by Pete Grant), Wurlitzer, hammond, and upright. To say it transcends genre might be presumptuous, but it certainly challenges it. Angelica’s debut album is expected to be released sometime in 2017 in conjunction with a west coast release tour.
