DEVILISHLY GOOD PRODUCTIONS

Devilishly Good Productions is a music production company based in Los Angeles, providing original music for film, television and advertising, known for the ground breaking work of its creative driving force, record producer and composer, The Angel.

 

Angel launched her career as a self-produced recording artist with Los Angeles based record label, Delicious Vinyl (The Pharcyde, Tone Loc, The Brand New Heavies).
