The music of Angels in the Chamber is unique under the heavens. Featuring Garry Novikoff (piano/guitar/vocals); Pamela Sklar (flute/alto flute); Enid Blount Press (clarinet/bass clarinet) and Marc Wager (French horn/backup vocals), the Angels weave elements of rock, pop, classical, improvisational and atmospheric music into a highly original genre all its own. Their material co-features originals as well as inventive covers from the 1960s and 70s; the golden age of what was called art rock or progressive rock. They also go back in time to reinvent and re-imagine works from the Civil War era.
Finalists in WNYC's Battle of the Boroughs concert at the Greene Space hosted by WQXR's Terrance McNight, the Angels were featured on Bob Sherman’s radio show Woody’s Children on WFUV in New York.
Their compelling debut recording Angels in the Chamber (2018) includes acclaimed group arrangements and originals.
"A wonderful, cathartic, freeing experience. You are your own thing. I didn't know they allowed this in the Bronx!" Nick Sansano, award-winning record producer (sonic youth, Run D.M.C., Public Enemy), panelist
WNYC the Green Space Battle of the Boroughs.
"Definitely outside the box. Strong, talented musicians. Alicia Olatuja, musician/vocalist, panelist WNYC the Green Space Battle of the Boroughs"New York's Angels in the Chamber must have access to some kind of time travel device, as every time I listen to their music I'm seemingly transported to some time in the past...a unique sound. Whether covering rock classics or playing an original composition, Angels in the Chamber are worthy and deserving of your attention. And if you listen closely, you may be transported..."
