Charlotte Abroms, Angie’s manager adds, “As a highly creative manager, working with AWAL is a total dream. I have worked with AWAL across my roster and it’s opened up incredible career opportunities for myself and the artists I work with who share a similar creative drive and march to the beat of their own drums. I believe the freedom and independence of being an AWAL Recordings artist brings out the best in both artist and management. I truly believe the creative independence Angie has had since day dot has allowed her to flourish as an artist and as a person. We’re excited to take the next step with Angie’s first album!”
Angie McMahon added, “Since AWAL released my first song, I’ve wanted to keep working with them because I’ve always felt that I can make my own calls, be authentic and be innovative. It is a free space to have the creativity and career that I envision without any bullshit. I’m so grateful to them for taking on my first album and holding me in their family with so much support.
