Kris Angelis “Kevin Bacon”

“She’ll blow up next year. She’s the new Rachel Platten or something, watch out!” – Valentine in the Morning on LA’s 104.3 MyFM

Kris Angelis grew up on a farm in Florida, writing songs and learning to harmonize with her identical twin sister in their treehouse. They didn’t have cable so they entertained themselves by riding horses and singing, dancing, and creating shows for their family. That led to a love of acting in theater and musicals when Kris’s family moved to Carmel, CA which eventually brought her to Los Angeles to pursue acting and music.

Kris has toured all over the US and Europe with her folk/pop music and at festivals including SXSW, Edinburgh Fringe, Sundance, NAMM, and MondoNYC. Kris explores the range of emotions after a broken relationship from hurt to sorrow to hope to finding happiness again in her award-winning “Heartbreak Is Contagious” EP (Best Female Artist International Acoustic Music Awards, International Songwriting Competition Award Winner) which landed in the Top 10 of the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. The title track was featured in the first Women Who Rock Relix Magazine issue and sampler and can be heard in AMC, Regal, and Cinemark movie theaters across the US.

 

Kris has also released a few collaborative singles this year including Roll The Dice (written with and produced by Rockwell Sands of billboard charting band WØLVES), Bright Side (with Adrianne Gonzalez of The Rescues) and an original holiday song, Please Come Back Home with Billy Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin, Dashboard Confessional) which was featured in the New Releases section of Holiday Music on Spotify reaching over 20,000 plays in the first month.
