I had so much fun talking to Eryn Cooper for this Huffington Post article even though she's an Alabama fan and I'm a Gator, we bonded over music and being Hanson fans! :)
My single with Adrianne Gonzalez "Bright Side" just came out on Oct 6th and I felt uncomfortable promoting it in the midst of all of the devastation and tragedy going on right now for which there is no bright side. But I have decided to give the proceeds from the whole pre-sale and first week of sales to victims of the Las Vegas shooting. So get it ASAP to help while getting yourself a song that will hopefully make you feel a little better.
Please share as much as you can with #BrightSideSingle so we can make the biggest contribution. You can get it on iTunes but the best place for making the most impact is BandCamp because they take less of a commission AND you can change the price to pay more if you want to donate more!
I'm going to be playing a set at Now Boarding in West Hollywood during this benefit concert to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Harvey. It's FREE to get in and they are asking that in lieu of the cover charge, that attendees make a donation in any amount at the link below:
I'm excited to be releasing some new music on 10.6.17 and you can pre-order your copy and preview the song now ---> HERE (if it takes you to Apple Music, just click back to the iTunes Store) or by going to the iTunes Store and searching for Kris Angelis.
"Bright Side" is a bit of a departure from my sound because its a collaboration with an artist I love, Adrianne Gonzalez (The Rescues) who believes (and I agree!) that the best stuff comes out of being a little scared and out of your comfort zone. Its a percussive, fun, and empowering track and I can't wait to hear what you think! Feel free to let me know in the comments!
Please share/post the link after you get yours! It makes a big difference. Don't forget to hashtag #BrightSide and tag me @krisangelis so I can see your posts and respond! :)
Here's a little behind the scenes of Adrianne and me in the studio recording some gang vocals!
I'm in the Pacific Northwest and I love it! I've been driving up the beautiful coast, camping and taking little detours. We went to Bodie (an awesome ghost town) and Crater Lake (not the one we thought it was...haha! It was very small...and not in Oregon.)
Check out the TOUR section to see which cities I'm playing in. These are all private house concerts so I can't just invite the public BUT if you do know me, and want to come, text me, and I'll get you the info!
Check out my Instagram for photos from the adventure! I'm posting them as I get reception.
There have been a few new interviews and reviews in the past week or so. You can check them out below!
"Complex in her arrangements, catchy in her rhythms, and profoundly genuine in her lyrics, Kris Angelis is a wildly talented songstress and storyteller out to save the real world."
My not-yet-release song co-written with and produced by The Highfields "A Billion Hearts" is now a semi-finalist in the Unsigned Only competition.
My episode of Watching the Hawks Strikes a Chord that aired last night! Live performances of 3 songs from my new EP with a band and a special piano/cello version of "Built This House" There is also a really fun, unique interview. That was a fun day! Thank you to Tyrel Ventura, Tabetha Wallace, and everyone involved in recording this and big thanks to Charles Wiley (drums), Mikael Gustavsson (bass), and Michelle Packman (cello)! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzSrbuTIE8o&app=desktop
I'm so excited to share this with you! I got to make it with my best friends and it was so much fun! Check it out now along with the interview about it and the "Heartbreak Is Contagious" EP HERE.
Here are some other things you can do to make a HUGE difference to the success of Heartbreak Is Contagious!
Spotify spins and saves are important numbers to industry and the more a track has, the more likely it is to get put on playlists and be discovered by more potential new fans. So you can help by:
- putting the EP on REPEAT! (You can turn it down - I don't want you to get sick of it ;)
- SAVE the EP to your music
- ADD the songs to playlists that you have access to.
You can do that all here:
If you don't have iTunes, you can get the EP on Bandcamp and I believe you can buy multiple copies. You can also Gift them like you can on iTunes. It has to be by the end of the day on June 8th to count for the Billboard chart.
