Angela Easterling, along with Brandon Turner, will be playing at the Wine Cellar at the Saluda Inn Friday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m.

Angela Easterling was raised in the South Carolina foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Much of her childhood was spent on the Greer, S.C., farm that has been in her family since 1791.

Easterling embraced her heritage as a writer and an artist on her debut album, “Earning Her Wings,” chosen as “Americana Pick of the Year” by Smart Choice Music. Her second album, “BlackTop Road,” was released in July ’09, landing in the top five for adds to the Americana radio charts and debuting on the Americana top 40 chart in September, where it remained for seven weeks.

Easterling’s music was featured in commercials and several of her songs were used in the series “Horsepower” on Animal Planet.

Plans are underway for a new album to be recorded in 2010 with her band, The Beguilers (Brandon Turner, Jeff Hook and Brandon Gilliard). For more info on Angela, including bio, tour dates, and audio downloads, visit www.angelaeasterling.com.
