Fun. Authentic. Expressive. Passionate.
Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group featuring four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and badass multi-instrumentalists. Together their magic blend of a multitude of stringed instruments, two blazing violins, and unique harmonies have taken Nashville by storm, and that enthusiasm is now spreading via word-of-mouth, social media, and live shows that bring down the house.
Singer, fiddle player and songwriter extraordinaire Nicole Witt and renowned fiddle / mandolin virtuoso Andrea Young teamed up with noted Nashville harmony singer and solo artist Lisa Torres in late 2014. Their clear writing chemistry, creative drive and incendiary performance soon caught the ears and eyes of producers Jen Ketner and Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson, Darius Rucker) and recording commenced in 2015. 2016 has already celebrated the release of their debut EP on Stegall’s Dreamland Entertainment – and appearances at the ACM All-Star Jam, CMA Fest, a 75-city radio tour, festival dates at Creek Fest and Trails West. In late summer 2016 they added ACM and Tony Award nominee Lauren Lucas, adding yet another lead vocalist and stellar guitarist to the mix.
Their single “If It Ain’t With You” is poised to conquer the radio universe the fall. In September 2016, the song placed Farewell Angelina among Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know”. Roughstock called it “Our favorite new country song.” Queens of Country said, “This song is a hit in the making. This could end up becoming Farewell Angelina’s “Burning House.” The Boot said, Listeners will get a Dixie Chicks-like vibe from Farewell Angelina — not a tough comparison to draw, given that both are groups made up of strong, talented women — most especially on “If It Ain’t With You,” their EP’s second track.
Members have had songs recorded by artists ranging from George Strait to Lee Brice and their instrumental and vocal talents have graced and enhanced country stars such as Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Josh Thompson, Jana Kramer, Frankie Ballard, and Jerrod Niemann. Onstage, they’ve opened for Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley and a host of others.
This group’s number one love and concern are country music fans. Farewell Angelina leaves everything they have on stage every night. They want to create a moment -not for their audience, but WITH their audience. Expect these four Strong Women to deliver sophisticated songs that matter to radio and fans hungry for real depth, artistry and perspective…and to packed venues ready for their energy, attitude, and allure
