Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Sweet Angel is an an American soul-blues saxophonist, singer and songwriter. Sweet Angel is one of few who did not get her launch singing in church. Sweet Angel has been heavily compared to Millie Jackson, the late Denise LaSalle and Jackie Neal.
Sweet Angel’s love and appreciation for good music though, stemmed from her childhood. Her mother loved listening to the Blues on Saturday mornings and her father sung gospel in the church choir. Never considering a career in music, Sweet Angel worked in corporate America as a mortgage banker and real estate agent until as fate has it, she became acquainted with her now husband and personal manager, Mac “Mike” Dobbins.
In elementary school, Sweet Angel was part of the Orff Music Program. There she sung with the chorus and learned to play the xylophone. In middle school, she broadened her musical abilities when she learned to play clarinet in the band. She excelled in music and won top seats in the All-City Band and All West Tennessee Bands. She later began playing the tenor saxophone because of its shiny appeal. She honed her skills further by not only playing in the marching band, but also the jazz band. In the late 80’s, Sweet Angel played alto saxophone at Libertyland in Memphis, Tennessee with the unit that played for the Elvis Presley impersonator, Andy Childs. Sweet Angel fluently plays over 15 different woodwind instruments.
Sweet Angel's first album (2007) was “Another Man’s Meat on My Plate” which included singles she is still known for today: ‘Another Man’s Meat on My Plate’, ‘I Must Be Crazy’, and ‘Right Street, Wrong Way’. Recorded initially under an independent label formed by her and her husband, the album received favorable recognition.
