Kris Angelis is on a roll. She was awarded Best Female EP in the 2016 LA Music Critics Awards for her newest EP, Heartbreak is Contagious. A single from the album was featured on Relix Magazine‘s first ever “Women Who Rock” sampler CD in their September/October 2016 issue. Her music can be heard throughout Season 2 of AwesomenessTV’s show Guidance. She landed an official show at NAMM 2017 and an Honorable Mention in WIMN’s “She Rocks Awards” #SaveAGuitar contest. She was awarded Best Female Artist in the 13th annual International Acoustic Music Awards and made the finals in the International Songwriting Competition. Her first full-length album, The Left Atrium, produced by Jeff Zacharski, garnered rave critical reviews and adoring fans for this magnificent talent —beautiful, eclectic, surprising, and yet somehow always herself.
