urban cowgirl
Darlin’, I’m the best mistake that you never made.
— Angie Atkinson

Angie grew up riding down dirt roads and kissing boys in pickup trucks in the small but colorful town of Starkville, Mississippi. She was always a city girl at heart, so when her marriage ended in 2009 and it was time to get the hell out of town, she brought that country-fried realness with her to New York City.

Combining metropolitan sophistication with her grassroots grit, Angie created her own unique urban cowgirl sound, though she admits to hearing Jon Bon Jovi’s album Blaze of Glory as a little girl and saying, "That's what I want to be when I grow up.” She is rock and roll at heart, but her sound is infused with the soulful ache and the country twang of her southern heritage. 

Whether serving up a quiet acoustic jam on her ukulele or with the wall of country rock fire created by her full 7-piece band behind her, Angie's powerhouse vocals and pull-no-punches lyrics cut through the bull malarkey and straight to the heart.

She made her NYC debut at CMJ in 2011. She has two recordings under her belt (Double Or Nothin'  in 2012 and High & Mighty in 2016) and routinely plays with her band at some of New York City’s most known and loved venues, including Arlene’s GroceryThe Bitter End,  The Bowery ElectricRockwood Music Hall, and Sidewalk Cafe.  Her tunes are available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music & Amazon.
