Thank you so much @EarToThe_Ground for the wonderful kind review and feature of "Heartbreak Is Contagious"! Cheers! http://www.eartothegroundmusic.co/2017/01/31/the-tuesday-four-tracks-to-get-you-moving/
"Solid songwriting. That’s all. This is the most difficult of crafts and what separates the best artists from the sea of good. Kris is one of those rare talents who can transport you into the life of her song narrative. She crafts pop tracks that are poppy enough for the mainstream but creative and ambitious enough to win over a more indie of audiences. LA Music Critics Awards named her debut album, The Left Atrium, as the Best Female Album of 2013 and she has won accolades from a mix of music fans. The artist is working on her new EP named after this track and says this about heartbreak:“When you’re brokenhearted it can literally feel like your heart is not working properly. You can’t really love anyone, including yourself, which can lead to you breaking someone else’s heart. But also included is the idea that you can let go—that sometimes heartbreak is just a thing that happens and it’s nobody’s fault.”The result is a classic track that bounces around genres in a way that only a well crafted singer songwriter can do."

2013 LA Music Critics Award Winner! Best Female Album for "The Left Atrium"
Women in music are great. Women in music with incomparable talent are fantastic. Women in music with incomparable talent and a story to tell are what’s going to save the world.
Today’s woman in question is Monterey, California’s singer/songwriter/gem Kris Angelis. She’s moments away from the release of her new EP, Heartbreak Is Contagious, and trust us, you want to get a countdown going.
You’re introduced to an acoustic, sweet sound on “Heartbreak Is Contagious”, the EP’s title track. The song only speeds up for it’s hook-filled chorus, featuring echo-y vocals that make you feel like the whole performance might be going on in the middle of an enchanted forest. Angelis’ voice is in full force on the song, but every time a higher note slides into the sheet music you’re taken to another world—the same happens every time she rapts “help me try to understand what’s going on inside your head.”
Angelis paints a gripping picture in “Built This House”. Listen along as an elegant but decrepit house, built to fall, is created with a charged lyrical delivery. This leads to the last song on the three track EP, titled “Kevin Bacon” (because why not?) A little happier than what we’ve heard so far, sugary sweet lyrics lead along a slow, but still danceable, beat. It captures the feeling of the first few weeks of a relationship, and is sure to highlight that point in time during your next one.
In short, if you’re having a very terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, Kris Angelis’ Heartbreak Is Contagious is sure to sweep you off your feet for a sweet ride that’ll make your day—or more accurately, week.

Back in 2013 Kris Angelis came out with, what I would call, one of the most tender and emotional albums of the year, luckily Adele didn’t drop anything that year. She recently dropped a new track called Heartbreak Is Contagious which sticks with the emotional side of her first album with the lyrics really adding value to that but the production has improved ten fold with the guitar, stomps, harmonies and voice all coming together to create quite a personal, folk driven track. Heartbreak might be contagious but I think the love I have for this song might be as well - Jakk

Hit Zone New Music Now: Kris Angelis
Single Press Release
Based out of Los Angeles, Kris Angelis pulls much of her inspiration from growing up on a farm Gainesville, Florida, where she first started her love affair with music crafting little songs and singing harmonies with her twin sister. A theatre performer from a young age, she's studied with teachers from the famed Julliard and Tisch School of the Arts in New York City, dabbled in TV and film acting (even appearing on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Bones), and adds dancing among her long list of talents that make her more than a triple threat. Throughout all of her years seeking knowledge and diving head first into new challenges, her poetic songwriting and soft-spoken vocals are where she blossoms, her first EP "Ghost In The Corner" a perfect example of where her career was heading. Her first full length, debut album, "Left Atrium" out July 2013 shows her abilities have risen to new heights in an exceptional way.
The first single off the album, "Cut To The Chase" is born from an undeniable movement that lies beneath the distinctive drum line. The flicker of the candle bursts to life within the musical folds of the song, all about wanting something you shouldn't have, much like touching a flame knowing that you'll get burned. Kris' vocals soar with a jazz-infused quality throughout the melodically heavy song, with a witty, devil-may-care attitude that adds stunning boldness.
