Bio:
ANGELO M: After a mill bankruptcy that cost him his pension, Angelo M. (short for Melasecca) made the unlikely transition from steelworker to touring artist and hasn’t looked back. He’s a multi-award winning Americana songwriter and master fingerstyle & slide guitarist with rootsy sound, warm, smoky vocals, and a witty sense of humor. With influences from the likes of Jorma Kaukonen, Ry Cooder, Chet Atkins, Duane Allman and Leo Kottke, reviews hail Angelo M. a “Brilliant Guitarist” with an “Excellent Voice” and call his performance “Powerful”.
After two successful self released albums this roots enriched folk artist got Nashville's attention... and in 2012 released his label debut, "From Steel to Strings” with Creative and Dreams Music Network featuring 16 original tracks that showcase Angelo and all his assets. The album is receiving airplay in the US and abroad, along with strong reviews: “This record is a Triumph in the Roots, Blues & Americana Categories: Laid back like Croce or Taylor, down in the blues with Sumlin and Clapton, and tickling the strings a’la Bruce Cockburn...” "Angelo M’s songwriting is top notch. And his musicianship? Ah, well, if fingers normally had wings, I might understand, but they don’t and, well… wow!” - Middle Tennessee Music.

Strong as the album is, it’s LIVE where Angelo really shines..

"ANGELO M. MADE OUR JAWS DROP When He Sat Down & Blistered the Frets..." - Acoustic Live

"A REAL CROWD PLEASER! Angelo M. went immediately to our 'Bring Back for a Return Visit' list." - Grady Ormsby, Booking Manager DownEast Folk Arts Society.

Witty, engaging, a favorite at festivals, Angelo M. received standing ovations while on tour at festivals and listening rooms from NY to Portland. Angelo’s music is featured in a PBS TV Series and garners songwriting honors from the prestigious “Mountain Stage” NewSong
Contest, Billboard’s World Song Contest and more. He’s a humble hardworking man who spent decades working in a PA steel mill, but there’s nothing understated about the talent of this blusey virtuoso player and award winning songwriter. Armed with a six string, Dobro, mandolin & harp, he’s down and dirty, no holds barred – an authentic link in the American Roots chain as a singer, player and songwriter. www.AngeloM.com
