Deradoorian is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter hailing from Northern California. As a child, she focused on classical piano, which became the catalyst for her exploration in other genres of music. At age 15 she left high school to pursue a musical career. After traveling around the country in several bands, her heart led her to Brooklyn, NY, where she joined Dirty Projectors.
During her tenure with the band they released the critically acclaimed records Rise Above and Bitte Orca, and worked with several talented and respected artists such as Bjork & David Byrne. In this hectic, but exciting time, Angel released her first solo EP under the title Mind Raft on the record label Lovepump United in 2009. In 2012, Deradoorian left the band to pursue her own project. She is currently living in Los Angeles and working on an album inspired by singing and the space in which sound can reside. Angel is also a member of the band Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks.
