Angel Deradoorian was raised by a family of musicians--her mother and father were in a killer sax & piano duo in the 70s. At age 7 she began taking piano lessons and extended her learning abilities to flute and guitar. At age 15, she left high school to become a serious musician and started touring with professional bands. At age 20 she joined Dirty Projectors--whom she records and tours with to this day. And at age 22, Angel finally decided to release her own music on Lovepump United under her last name, Deradoorian. The Mind Raft EP is astonishingly mature, dark, beautiful, and unexpected--if only because seems to have tapped into something far older and wiser than her 22 years would suggest. Whether it's the guitar, bass flute, or her stunning voice, Angel's musical proficiency is boundless.
