QMusic - CEO


Angela is CEO of QMusic and Executive Producer of BIGSOUND, bringing with her over two decades of experience working in the media and entertainment industry across music, film and television.

Angela has worked for Paramount Pictures, Network Ten, Planet Hollywood and was National Publicist for Festival Mushroom Records (Sydney-based) where she looked after a large roster of artists and bands. Before QMusic, Angela was at Screen Queensland (SQ), the state government’s screen agency and prior to Screen Queensland, Angela ran her own private company, Box Office Publicity, a boutique business that provided strategic and creative counsel for its entertainment-focussed clients from early career musicians to film festivals. Also during this time, Angela did weekly radio entertainment reporting and reviewing.

Whilst studying a double major in Political Science at the University of Queensland in the early 1990s against a backdrop of Brisbane’s thriving live music scene, and being fiercely proud of Brisbane’s Livid Festival and our state's capital city's placement in the national music scene, Angela has always been a strong advocate for music and the role it plays from a cultural, social, economic, community and mental health point-of-view.
