Angela Little is a screen composer and vocalist originally from Sydney, Australia. Her first big break into screen scoring was on Baz Luhrmann’s film “Australia”, for which she co-composed Additional Music, which led to nominations for several national and international awards. She was also the singer and co-writer of “By The Boab Tree”, which was the song featured on the end credits of the film. Since then, Angela’s music and distinctive vocals have continued to appear in a range of high profile film, television, and videogame projects. In 2015 she featured as a vocal soloist on Marco Beltrami’s score for Alex Proyas-directed blockbuster “Gods of Egypt”, and she composed the score for coming-of-age feature documentary “Zach’s Ceremony”, which won numerous film festival awards before being nominated for a 2017 AACTA Award for Best Feature Documentary.
In 2018, Angela relocated to Los Angeles to complete her Master of Music in Screen Scoring at the University of Southern California, where she was the recipient of the Sandra & Alan Silvestri Scholarship, awarded annually to the program’s top-ranked applicant. During her time at USC, Angela was selected for the Thornton Board of Councillors Mentorship Program, through which she was mentored by world-renowned screen composer Thomas Newman, and on graduation, she received the faculty’s top honour, the Joe and Alice Harnell Award. Angela was also the recipient of grants and awards from the Australia Council for the Arts, the PPCA Performers’ Trust, the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, the Australian American Association’s Dame Joan Sutherland Fund, and the AMP Tomorrow Fund.
2019 saw Angela’s score for feature film “Back of the Net” (starring Disney’s Sofia Wylie (Andi Mack, High School Musical:The Series)) screen on the Disney Channel in the USA after an Australian cinema release. In November, Angela won the APRA-AGSC Screen Music Award for Best Music for a Short Film for her score for Rebekah Jackson’s ‘For The Girl in the Coffee Shop’; she was also nominated for a 2019 Hollywood Music in Media Award and a 2020 G.A.N.G (Game Audio Network Guild) Award for her music for China’s highest-grossing mobile game, ‘Honor of Kings’, on which she collaborated with the team at Hexany Audio.
