Behind the Tool-Shed
Oh, the things you can find in Manville! Diva vocalist and mad scientist Angie Louise fronts a bunch of burly boys cranking away on piano, bass, tuba, drums, clarinet, trumpet and trombone, all while shouting out backing vocals in festive attire. This irresistible retro train makes stops in Dixieland, beer-hall, bebop and burlesque, with a couple hillbilly hoedowns thrown in for good measure. Great vocals, a hot toe-tappin' band, and a twisted sense of humor. 'LOUISE IS PART EARTHA KITT, PART CAROL BURNETT... SILKEN AND FEROCIOUSLY FUNNY... BRASSY, SASSY, RAZZMATAZZY FUN.' - TalkinBroadway.com 'I NOW WORSHIP AT THE ALTAR OF ANGIE LOUISE... YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO BUY THIS CD.' - TheatreSeattle.com 'LOUISE HAS A TERRIFIC VOICE AND COMEDY CHOPS TO MATCH... A POWERHOUSE VOCALIST.' - Seattle Post-Intelligencer 'SUPERB... A MESMERIZING PRESENCE AND AN AMAZING VOICE.' - Seattle Gay News 'DYNAMIC AND TALENTED, WITH A RICH VOICE AND COMEDIC FLAIR... LOUISE BELTS WITH THE BEST.' - Seattle Times Vocalist/arranger Angie Louise released this CD in 2004, when she was already a fixture in Seattle's musical theatre, indie film, and cabaret scene. Shortly thereafter she turned to songwriting, inspired by the likes of Tom Waits, Nina Hagen, Leonard Cohen and Kurt Weill. In 2009, after a regional tour in 'Cabaret', Louise founded acclaimed Weimar-inspired band The Love Markets, described in Seattle Magazine as 'a deliciously dark carnival.' In 2013, The Love Markets released their debut album 'World Of Your Dreams,' available right here on CDBaby. Alongside Angie on this album: D.J. Gommels (piano and co-arranger); Mark Wolford (drums, percussion); Greg Powers (trombone, tuba, ukelele); Jon Miller (bass, banjo, guitar); Charles Crowley (clarinet); and Jeff McGrath (trumpet). Individual credits of the Manville men include appearances with the Swiss National Opera, performances with Davy Jones of the Monkees, and a musical Fulbright Fellowship to India.
