'Angela Toohey is a major talent' 
Frank Gauntlett SYD Telegraph Mirror
 
Award winning artist Angela Toohey has had a successful career in both live and musical theatre. Angela has notably featured in The Boy From Oz, Mamma Mia, The Witches of Eastwick, Cabaret, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Educating Rita, and Jesus Christ Superstar.
 
Starring opposite Hugh Jackman, Todd McKenney, Paul McDermott and with Chrissie Amphlette, Marina Prior, and Geraldine Turner.                                                                                                                       
Ever evolving, Angela has taken time to train as a woodworker, designer (Sturt School for Wood Grad 2004) and has in recent years delved deeply into her songwriting.                                                                                                                                              
Her music has a wide appeal, and could be described as contemporary Australian folk music. As an artist, Angela has a unique singing and song writing style. Her guitar work and singing abilities reflect a genuine richness and depth of her character and consciousness.
