As a Grammy nominated songwriter Angelo’s early success placed him amongst the A-list writers of Nashville. The next, considerably more intense run of success put the unassuming Angelo at the heart of an American rock & roll revival as producer and writing partner with back-to-basics Tennessee band Kings of Leon. All told, Kings of Leon retained Angelo as their producer for six total albums, from the boogie and Southern rock of early releases Youth and Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak that conquered Europe to 2013's Mechanical Bull.
MOST INFLUENTIAL ALBUM
BEGGARS BANQUET | THE ROLLING STONES
This was an incredibly influential record for me. It has everything. Political, “Street Fighting Man”, Rock and Roll, “Stray Cat Blues”, Folk, Country and Gospel. Social and just general badassery, “Sympathy For the Devil."
