Pop/country artist Krista Angelucci is no stranger to the spotlight. A native of Billerica, Massachusetts, Krista first fell in love with country music through artists like Martina McBride, Jessica Andrew, Amy Grant, and Faith Hill. “I’ve been singing around the house as long as I can remember,” she says. “At eight years old I had my first solo in church, and it was probably around then that my family realized singing was already my passion.”
As she got older, she began to write and perform music of her own, soon becoming a staple of the Boston-area country music scene and earning awards such as the New Hampshire and New England Country Female Entertainer of 2009 and was named “Country Act of the Year” at the 2013 New England Music Awards. Krista honed her performance skills playing in local country bands; singing the national anthem at Boston Celtics, New England Patriots, NASCAR, and New England Revolution games; and opening for acts including Phil Vassar, Chuck Wicks, Lee Brice, Big & Rich, Hunter Hayes, Chris Cagle, Jo Dee Messina, Jerrod Niemann and Kip Moore. “I love being on stage – it feels like home to me,” she says. Krista released her debut EP, Like It Or Not, in 2012.
Currently residing in Nashville, Krista continues to refine her writing and performance, an effort that has culminated in her second EP, Love Me Crazy, a fun-filled collection of songs that showcases her talent as a singer and her relatable down-to-earth charm. The EP, which was recorded at 3rd Room Music, The Couch Room, as well as the historic Omni Studio in Nashville, is produced by herself and Chris Parker. The EP is set to be released in Spring 2016.
As she continues touring and performing her original music for her growing fan base, Krista looks forward to what is to come with her music career. “It’s always been my dream to share my music with the world and be on stage,” Krista said. “I am excited to be making my dreams into a reality.”
