Angela Sclafani is a New York City-based singer-songwriter. As a creative and multi-hyphenate artist, she is often synchronously performing, writing, and co-producing her projects.
Because of her versatile work in both the theater and music worlds, Angela has had the opportunity to perform with renowned artists such as Todd Almond, Courtney Love, Shaina Taub, Heidi Rodewald, & Years and Years. She has also performed at prominent venues in NYC that include The Beacon Theater, The Theater at Madison Square Garden, The McKittrick Hotel, Joe’s Pub, and Webster Hall.
When not busy with her theatrical projects and acting gigs, Angela writes, performs, and records her original music. She has independently released two EP’s, Your Ghost and Blossom, and frequently performs live at the notable singer-songwriter venue, Rockwood Music Hall. Angela’s music combines confessional lyrics with passionate and emotional vocals, often echoing the work of singers like Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, and Bonnie Raitt. This year, her original song, Your Ghost, received first place in the Great American Song Contest’s Adult Contemporary category and was praised by judges for its “engagingly original lyrical story, inventively appealing imagery and smartly crafted melodic design.”
In support of her creative endeavors, Angela was named a Richie Jackson Artist Fellow and was awarded the Anna Sosenko Assist Trust Grant. She is also an inaugural resident of the Orchard Project Greenhouse, a two-time alumna of Ars Nova’s ANTFest, and a 2018 Jonathan Larson Grant Finalist.
