As many in the area prepare to ‘Shelter in Place’ today, some might be wondering how to spend their Saturday night. Thankfully, the Quad Cities are home to many talented musicians who have adapted their live performances for all to enjoy! Many are taking to Facebook Live and YouTube to bring audiences some interactive entertainment to keep us all in high spirits during these trying times.


Local musician Angela Meyer will bring her upbeat and charismatic talent to Facebook Live tonight, Saturday Mar 21 at 9 p.m.!

Angela Meyer has been performing professionally since she was just 16 years old, bringing out the best of the country and western industries. As a storyteller with a passion for her listeners, she stays true to three chords and the truth. Angela pulls in the crowd with a sweet voice and brutal honesty.

She knows what it’s like to be in the audience, her earliest memories taking her back to being a child dancing in smoky tent while her mama sang on stage with her band at the Iowa State Fair. Even before she could talk, Angela was singing along with the radio and introduced to her musical heroes through her grandparents’ record player in their Iowa farmhouse.

Around 10 years old, they gave her a guitar for Christmas, but it was so large she had to lay it across her lap to learn how to play it. She finally revisited the guitar at 15 years old, starting to write her own music and creating the foundation to build her young dream into a lifelong career.

Even during her limited time on Earth, Angela has witnessed many changes to the “country” genres and how they are defined. She sees the backlash as people speaking out about what is getting radio play and what is being overlooked. Listeners do not need to be educated on musical theory or the music business to feel that what’s being put out there is largely over-produced and under-thought. In a world more concerned about image than content, Angela boldly offers authenticity through her artistry. Her writing paints a picture of the human experience with wisdom far beyond her years.

Angela is continuously expanding her career into a lifelong journey of bringing music to those who need it most. Her debut album, Consequence, was released Apr 21, 2018 and is available for NOW through iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, and more! She continues to perform live at venues all over the Midwest as well as nationally on the Cowboy Poetry & Western Music circuits.
