While attending elementary school, he enrolled in their music program and started
playing the trumpet. He continued playing through his Junior High and High school years,
and became a member of the school's dance and jazz band. It was during these years
that he taught himself how to play guitar, bass and harmonica.
Awhile back, Angel started hearing music while he was sleeping. At first he would hear
the music mostly in the background of his dreams, but as time progressed the music
would become so detailed that he would hear every instrument. He would wake up half
asleep humming and singing the song that he was dreaming until he was able to replicate the song.
