Angela Isart has been a lead singer for local Houston cover bands since 2010. She founded A Sure Thing along with James Langenbuch, bassist, and guitarist, Miguel Thornton in August of 2014. Angela believes her wide vocal range stems from her years in church, high school, and college choirs as a first soprano where she was a featured soloist and first soprano and alto for small ensemble. She received a scholarship for voice and attended San Jacinto College North. She received her teaching degree in 1998 from The University of Houston-Downtown, graduating with honors, and when not performing, works for promoting, booking, and managing A Sure Thing. For her, it is a labor of love and a dream come true to sing with such an accomplished group of musicians and friends. The men in her band have had a major impact on her life musically as well as personally, and she is proud to have created a band that is dedicated and loyal to the music, the group, and to one another. The musical influences that have helped shape her own performances include Patsy Cline, Anne Wilson, Bette Midler, Barbara Streisand, Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, Prince, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler, Steve Perry, and Tina Turner to name a few.
Miguel is one of the most versatile guitarists in Houston. When he is not performing, Miguel teaches music to beginners and advanced students, children and adults, at both Sessions Music and Clear Lake Music Lessons in Houston, TX. Miguel has been part of original bands as well as cover bands and has been playing guitar since he was 12 years old when he was introduced to the instrument by his father. He has over 30 years of experience at guitar. He also plays bass, drums, and keyboards. Miguel’s philosophy on music can be summed up by a quote from Ludwig van Beethoven, “To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable.”
