Angel Haze announces gig at the Academy for April 2019.
Angel Haze has announced a Dublin gig for April 2019. The Detroit-born rapper, singer, activist and writer will play the Green Room at the Academy on Tuesday 30 April. Tickets go on sale Thursday 7 February at 9am from Ticketmaster.
Haze’s truth-spewing storytelling has attracted a global cult following and accolades, such as coveted positions on singles charts in the US and UK as well as MTV VMA and BET Award nominations. Angel's highly anticipated next full length album, produced by TROY NõKA (Frank Ocean), will be released in 2019.
Following her self-released debut album King, Haze has worked on several albums - including her latest released Back to the Woods (2015) - and the singer has also recorded with Sia for her 2014 track 'Battle Cry'.
Her music showcases a variety of themes of abuse, despair and suicide, with expressions of hope, courage, and triumph. Haze started out as a poet and briefly studied Neurobiology. Finding inspiration everywhere from the paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat to the social commentaries of Canadian author Malcolm Gladwell. Musically, they draw from the forceful, staccato delivery style of Tupac Shakur and the often cocky, blunt, and comic storytelling of Kanye West.
