"Angela has good humour, good sense, and good taste, a rare combination. She is a hilariously pungent comedian / social critic / swing psychologist and a born storyteller. Angela has a remarkably winning voice. She is a pleasure to listen to, sometimes lemony, sometimes warm and embracing. She is a... masterful interpreter of standards... an exceptional composer, and a funny, playful lyricist. Her recordings are head and shoulders above the usual flood of vocal jazz albums."
Angela Verbrugge won the 2020 JazzTimes Readers' Poll for Best Female Vocalist. She released her debut album, The Night We Couldn't Say Good Night, through Gut String Records (NYC). Toronto Music Report described, "Verbrugge addresses each song with the breathtakingly, absolutely natural purity of her voice. A rare perfect album." National Canadian Broadcasting CBC Radio host Laila Biali described, "There's so much joy in delivery." WSJ-writer Will Friedwald describes, "a vocal sound that's full of depth and nuance - welcoming the light without denying the darkness". Angela was one of the youngest graduates from Toronto's George Brown School of Performing Arts after a youth spent in Ontario. She relocated to Vancouver (1997) and after having kids and three brushes with death, she decided to follow her passion to jazz. She relocated to Victoria, BC in 2019. Angela is primarily influenced by the swing era, vintage musicals, and bebop. This March, she toured to Japan, performing at the Oscar Peterson Theatre at the Embassy of Canada and in seven cities. She has performed internationally in Turkey, Germany, England, and at leading clubs and festivals in Canada. ...
