Enjoy a live music featuring Angie Laster. Destined to perform from age five, Angie Laster would tiptoe into the Pleasantville Pentecostal Church where her father ministered and climb onto the piano bench. With Angie at the keyboard, that baby grand echoed throughout the sanctuary with refrains from Dolly Parton to James Taylor. Even though Angie was often caught mimicking those “worldly” tunes, it never dampened her spirit. During those formative years in that little church, along with her musicianship, Angie developed a strong faith that can still be heard in her music. At the age of twelve, while mastering the guitar, bass, piano and accordion, Angie’s songwriting skills emerged. Properly, her inaugural recording, Angie Laster Gospel, included one of her own creations. This collection of hymns compiled for her greatest inspiration, her grandmother, reflects Angie’s faith, family and musical flair. Encompassed by a supportive family, Angie set her sights on Music Row. After all, her writing, performing, and recording are like breathing. Her style is reminiscent of her small town roots, “down to earth and pure.” Whether interpreting a classic tune or a self-penned ballad, Angie’s soulful voice wraps itself around every syllable capturing the deepest emotion imaginable, as demonstrated on her sophomore project, Angie Laster Old School. Angie characterizes herself as “country in an educated way.” Fusing her rural roots with life’s seasoning and enduring faith lends her music a familiar ring yet maintaining a distinctive sound. At the forefront of inspiration are her two daughters, who give her plenty of reasons to take up pen and paper. Additionally, her melodies reflect romance, heartache and conviction. Also an entrepreneur, Angie manages Terrell Branch Music Group, a publishing company, record label and recording studio. With two CDs and one in production, live appearances, exposure on WSM and the internet, Angie’s music is touching more and more lives every day. When asked what she wants fans to know about her, she comments, “I am as passionate about music as I am my family. It is a gift from God that I do not take for granted. “ Continuing to write, perform and record, Angie’s goal is to “impact as many people as I can through my music.” And with that, Angie has only just begun, because Angie Laster is a messenger.
