YOLANDA JOHNSTON / Backing Vocals
We are a Southern California band of 6, collaborating to make music that matters and to be thought provoking. Listen to the music let it take you where you want to be. Angelshade came together in 2009 as a project created by Brad Hanna to collaborate and create a new sound in the San Diego area. As potential members came and left, Angelshade kept changing with them and new sounds and personalities were projected through our music. The Band is now comprised of 6 members that together have a dynamic presence that is demonstrated in our performances.
We are energetic, put our heart into every song whether in the rehearsal room of on the stage. Angelshade has developed into a band to follow and proudly shares their music and message on Online streaming platforms and stages across the world.
The Band is comprised of our Front Man, Dave Marshall. Yolanda Johnston, backing vocalist. Brad Hanna, lead guitarist. Joe Haynes, rhythm guitarist. Tedd Staub, Bass guitarist. The foundation Marc DeJesus, drummer for Angelshade. Hailing from such places as Seattle, Las Vegas and San Diego, together as the members of Angelshade we provide a strong, powerful and meaningful message.
Our music blends rock and acoustic melodies to create a unique sound. Our lyrics are personal and inspired by our own lives and issues that we see and experience every day. We are influenced by not just one person or band but a culmination of artists that inspire and catch our attention.
Despite sharing many of the same interests and pastimes, we all are inspired by different things that lead us to work seamlessly in a creative setting. We take turns writing lyrics so we are all invested in each song and its meaning.
