About:
Angel Zuniga Martinez's roots may be in South Texas, but his music is positively pan-galactic. This baritone singer and southpaw guitarist made his move to the East Tennessee hills in Knoxville after his college career at Texas A&M University, and a fateful encounter with a beautiful woman. "Isn't it always because of a girl?," says Angel. Angel's songwriting takes a poetically thick, melodically quirky perspective on life, love, and sin. Plus, Angel's live shows are fun and energetic with the talented support of David Slack on bass and Frank Sheadrick on drums.

Angel and the Love Mongers were formed in the spring of 2004 in Knoxville, TN, by Angel Zuniga and drummer Eric Nowinski. Their self-titled first album was produced by Don Coffey, Jr. (Superdrag), and released on Disgraceland Records in February 2005. For their second album, they turned to veteran Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Let's Active, Wilco), who produced and played on The Humanist Queen, released by Rock Snob Records on September 4, 2007, following the band's June appearance at the Bonnaroo Festival.
