Angie Stone

A singer, MC, self-taught keyboardist, and prolific songwriter, Angie Stone’s first claim to fame was her membership in The Sequence, an all-female Trios that recorded for pioneering hip-hop label Sugar Hill, beginning with the 1979 single Funk You Up. Several years later, she re-emerged as the lead vocalist for Vertical Hold, where she scored with the smooth urban dance track Seems You’re Much Too Busy, a Top 40 R&B hit during the summer of 1993 that led to very productive solo career. With the release of her 1999 solo debut, she became one of neo-soul’s leading lights, providing sharp insight into romantic relationships with her smoky yet up-front voice. Angie Stone featured in 2014/15 alongside Maxwell, D’angelo, Anthony Hamilton, Lauren Hill and many others in Australia’s new Soul Fest.
