The band's set is made up of blues and soul covers blended beautifully with tunes composed by Fran and Mike. Roland has contributed songs and arrangements and the whole thing has resulted in powerful, emotional live performances.

Influences run from soul through funk and jazz and indeed Fran's singing career began in roots music. But at the heart of everything she sings is the blues and Fran sings everything with heart. Her cool, soulful voice gets straight to where it matters. The group have been playing as a unit for three years in their present form although Fran and Mike have been making music for much longer performing internationally as a duo in clubs and at concerts and festivals.

Roger Nunn and Michael Paice are highly respected veterans of the live music scene playing with legends such as Juice on the Loose, Joanne Kelly, Ron Kavana, Red Beans and Rice, Jools Holland, John Cleary and Dana Gillespie. Michael was a nominee as best saxophonist in the British Blues Connection annual awards, 2000. We know he's th e best! Before joining the Angels, Roland played with Wildmouth, Straitjacket & Cool Thrust and also composes for films and documentaries.
