Some of Angel's greatest influences consists of great drummers like Terri Lyne Carrington, Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Jamison Ross, David Garibaldi and others. She is also passionate about helping non-profit arts organizations like "The Washington Jazz Arts Institute" located in D.C. as a drum instructor and mentor to the young students in training. She is a graduate of George Mason University in Fairfax, V.A. where she studied to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a Minor in Jazz Studies & Arts Management. While there, Angel performed with several university ensembles like the Mason Jazz Big Band, Mason Jazz Vocal Ensemble and Steel Pan ensemble. She's spent time performing with the Latin American Ensemble as well, which has earned its members a place in Downbeat Magazine as "Outstanding Performers".

"To play fast around the drums is one thing. But to play music, to play with people for others to listen to, that's something else. That's a whole other world."

Tony Williams
