Angela Librandi Bio
Angela has defied all odds and has one of the hardest and longest working careers in the music industry.
It was more than 25 years ago when Angela Librandi discovered she had a ‘voice’ made for singing and performing.
Growing up in South Australia to Italian parents, Angela worked as a full time singer from the age of 21. During her time there, she toured the north of Australia in musicals, worked alongside veteran performer Venetta Fields and sang at the Adelaide Grand Prix’s.
Her first gig when she arrived in Melbourne, was touring with one of Australia’s most famous exports, Tina Arena. From there she became a permanent member of the house band on Australian television show ‘Don’t Forget your Toothbrush’, ‘IN Melbourne Tonight’ and the iconic ‘Hey Hey It’s Saturday’. As her profile started to rise she secured guest performance appearances on ‘Good Morning Australia’ for ten years, Channel 9’s Midday show, Channel 7’s Good Friday appeal and The Panel.
Her passion for performing live earned her a spot on backing vocals with the talents of Vanessa Amorosi, Ross Wilson, Renee Gayer, Kate Ceberano, Marcia Hines, Thelma Houston, Jimmy Barnes, Brian Cadd, Eric Benet, Jess Mauboy and most recently Hugh Jackman. She also had the privilege of performing for Sir Richard Branson.
As well, she has worked extensively overseas as the lead for various corporate functions all around Australia, Italy, Fiji, Borneo, Hong Kong, Tai Pei, Shanghai, Hawaii, Bali and Kuala Lumpur.
Performing live is a passion and Angela has developed her own unique style of singing described as neo soul, RnB with an infusion of jazz. Angela knows hows to get a crowd of music lovers up on their feet. “Performing as a support act for Chaka Khan was surreal. One of the biggest highlights of my career it cemented our band as one of the best in the business.”
For the past 15 years she has been a teacher and vocal coach for a range of students from teenagers to adults. Many are already established singers who need Angela’s help with voice and technique. With such an impressive background in the live music industry, Angela currently runs a Gospel, R&B choir In Carnegie called For the Love of it.
