Angel is a sunny California girl whose magazine cover looks are surpassed only by volumes of talent. If she wasn’t so dedicated to being the best at everything she does, it would be easy to say that she’s just plain lucky. The former Jive recording artist (lead singer of her girl group No Secrets) definitely makes it look – and sound – effortless, whether she’s performing at charity events, working in the studio to complete her debut album on Midas Records, or working out the choreography to the songs she’s writing, Angel does it all with the grace and ease of a true star.
Hey Angel! How are you?
I’m good thanks!
What made you decide to leave No Secrets and go solo?
It was always my dream to be a solo artist and when all the problems started between management with No Secrets I figured it was a good time to go solo. I still treasure my time with No Secrets though because it was a great learning experience. [READ MORE]

You’ve seen it on such celebrities as Tyrese, Justin Timerlake, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt and 50 Cent. DugLife is the new HOT clothing line for men. Designed to be incredibly comfortable, yet fashionable at the same time. We recently talked with Michael Stoney the President for Dug to ask him a few questions about how the line came about and what we can expect in the future.
How and when did the idea for DugLife come about?
Dug was created in 1999 when a partner and myself decided to address a previously untapped market in men’s fashion. The idea was spawned from an unsuccessful shopping spree to outfit for a pajama/loungewear event. We wanted to create a "Victoria Secret" for men and base it on the times in life that men want to be the most comfortable. Our mission was, and continues to be, to redefine loungewear and lounge-time. Dug is the acronym for "down under gear". We intend to dress a man from the time he wakes up until he calls it a night. Dug-life is our web destination introducing the dug lifestyle where lounging is for everyone. [READ MORE]
If you’re a fan of One Tree Hill, then you’re familiar with the music of the show, and the woman responsible for it all is OTH Music Supervisor, Lindsay Wolfington.
We recently got a chance to chat with her and pick her brain about what it really takes to prepare the music for each episode, how to submit your music, and Volume 2 of the One Tree Hill Soundtrack.
How did you get involved with working on One Tree Hill?
I used to be a coordinator for 2 music supervisors (Jennifer Pyken & Madonna Wade-Reed) who worked on Smallville with Tollin/Robbins Production, the same production company that makes One Tree Hill. So when OTH came along, they hired us. And now the three of us have all started our own companies, but since I had worked really closely with OTH in particular, now I do the show by myself.
