'That Siren, Hope' climbing the Americana Albums chart 

My little EP has been getting airplay around the country and a couple of weeks ago it broke into the Top 100 of the Americana Albums chart! This week it shot up to #86! I'm so grateful to the stations that are playing it, anyone who is requesting or telling them you like it, and that people are getting to hear it!

Wheels of Laredo cover 

I released my cover of "Wheels of Laredo" on Aug 7th! Tim Hanseroth, Phil Hanseroth, & Brandi Carlile wrote this beautiful song which is on Tanya Tucker’s Grammy winning album “While I’m Living” & The Highwomen albums from 2019. The lyrics have haunting imagery of love, loss, longing & history. Jamboozie takes place in Laredo, TX to celebrate a battle in 1898 between white men & Native Americans who won. The mayor gave the Chief the key to the city as a sign of unconditional surrender. It's the backdrop for many juxtapositions now. The drums of both sides are represented echoing through the track and underscore a more current story and personal inner battle. 

The colors of the cover art are the colors included on the flags of the Yaqui Tribe, Texas, and Mexico and the key is the key to the city from the state of Texas representing open gates and partnership. 

Produced by Billy Lefler

Slow acoustic version of Ghost (I'm Alive & Breathing) 

It came out on June 12th, but I just wanted to make sure it was on here so you all know about it! While in deep quarantine, I recorded this slower, stripped-down, more melancholy version of "Ghost" from That Siren, Hope, to go with the mood ;) This is the first thing I've released that I recorded myself! It's very simple but I'm still pretty excited I was able to do it. Enjoy! And please share <3

Live at the Hotel Cafe Album - Preorder & Listening Party! 

I'm sure we've all been missing going to and/or performing live shows so I wanted to make the recordings I got from my "That Siren, Hope" release show on Jan 16th available to you! The album will be released on June 5th but is available to pre-order right now.

I'm going to be doing a live listening party where you can chat with me on Timbredio this Thursday May 28th at 5pm.

You can also listen and watch the whole show video right on my Patreon. You can become a member to get access to that and a bunch more for as little as $5 a month!

Music Tasting Menu 

When all the shows were cancelled and we started staying home, I was 
thinking about how I could help artists like me through this and how I 
could direct people who might want to support those artists in a 
creative way. I came up with this idea (which was very much inspired 
by my friend Kristin Ford's Compilation Box 
[http://www.kristenfordmusic.com/compboxone] which you should also 
check out.) 

It's a monthly "Tasting Menu" of musicians curated by me and a 
surprise to you! You can get access to stream and download these 
albums or collections of songs provided by the artists by subscribing 
through my website HERE [https://krisangelis.com/music-tasting-menu]. 
It's only $20 per month to get 4 albums! That's a pretty good deal and 
you get to discover new music to listen to in your home, while 
supporting the artists. The artists get paid for every subscription! 

It's kind of like the social distance version of going to a Sofar 
Sounds show and I'm hoping Sofar Sounds [https://www.sofarsounds.com] 
will think its cool and help me promote it! 

CLICK HERE to subscribe for as long as you want!

There are so many great artists lined-up that 
I'm excited to share with you while supporting them in this crazy 
time. 

I (and all the indie musicians) appreciate you!
