In This Episode

From music teacher to innovative looping artist/vocalist/songwriter/producer, Angela Sheik stuns audiences as a live looper whose bare feet create electro-pop ear worms before your very eyes. Winner of the 2011-2012 Boss U.S. National Loop Champion, her 2019 Tiny Desk Contest submission “chiN uP giRL” received an honorable mention and well-deserved praise from NPR’s “All Songs Considered.”
