Angela Hammontree is a native PNW singer and songwriter known for her big pipes, catchy hooks, and uncompromising lyrics. Her music blends the classic sensibilities of such NW predecessors as Heart and Alice In Chains with a healthy dose of sly humor and punk attitude. Her vocal chops have been compared to everyone from Grace Slick to Chris Cornell, but she has cultivated a style of delivery that is truly her own. She has been a force in the Seattle area since 2003, both as a recording artist and as leader of the Angela Hammontree Band (AHB).
Angela's live band lineups have performed on Seattle radio's massively popular "Bob Rivers Show" and played countless venues and festivals, including a headlining slot at 2010's Seattle Hempfest.
In 2011 Hammontree took a brief hiatus before beginning writing for her next album. In January of 2013, she released the EP "Bitter Vines" to overwhelmingly positive reviews and a packed crowd. "Bitter Vines" hosts an array of talented musicans and producers and features the driving rock Hammontree is known for, in addition to some new ventures into genres such as blues and folk.
In early spring 2013, Hammontree assembled a new live lineup with an exciting, fresh group of players, including the experienced, powerful rhythm section of Kevin Lynch (bass) and bay area transplant Josh Nowlis (drums). Now the live project, shortened to simply Hammontree, is back bringing a dynamic live experience to the masses, and continuing to open plenty of minds and ears along the way.
