If “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”-era Elizabeth Taylor and David Lynch had a baby, and Wanda Jackson was her babysitter, the result would be Angaleena Presley. As well as being an accomplished country artist in her own right, Angaleena is also one third of supergroup Pistol Annies, formed with Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe in 2011. She released her most recent album, Wrangled, in April of 2017. Following 2014’s debut American Middle Class, which was nominated for International Album of the Year by the UK Americana Music Association, in Wrangled the feminist singer/songwriter tackles everything from the expectations fed to youngsters in the record business to teenage pregnancy. Her song “Cheer Up Little Darling” is the final song that prolific country and folk artist Guy Clark completed before sadly passing away. ”Wrangled is subtle, nuanced and clever” Ken Tucker for NPR’s Fresh Air “Angaleena Presley affirms her renegade status….She is a world-class songwriter” USA Today “If you don’t already know country’s Angaleena Presley, you should….She’s a voice to be reckoned with” Washington Post “An absolute work of art” Nashville Over Here “Wrangled is arguably the most important album of 2017” Digital Fix “Song after song features sharp lyrics, sublime melodies, strong performances and suitable production, with Presley cool, calm and collected at the center of it all.” Paste “Presley’s latest album is a masterclass in songwriting that shows the singer’s limitless potential.” American Songwriter “Angaleena Presley may be the feistiest woman in country music since Dolly Parton – 4/5” The Independent “Feminist firebrand’s blazingly defiant second, 8/10 Americana Album of the month” Uncut “One of the best damn living songwriters in the genre….Angaleena Presley is Country Music” UProxx “Angaleena Presley Is Nashville’s Biggest Smart-Ass” Pitchfork “Angaleena Presley Doesn’t Need Nashville, but Nashville Needs Angaleena Presley” Vice/Noisey “One of the best damn living songwriters in the genre….Angaleena Presley is Country Music” UProxx “Angaleena Presley might have made the best country album of the year” Nashville Scene “The album is a delight throughout and undoubtedly Presley’s most accomplished work” Country Music Magazine “A voice for the times” The Observer
