    Joyful music with a kick. Jessica Rotter debut and Kris Angelis' critics' choice

    in Music

    Florida-raised, LA-based Kris Angelis’ first album, The Left Atrium, was awarded Best Female Album of 2013 by the LA Music Critics Awards.  She has toured with Songs & Whispers, opened for Tyler Hilton and has been invited to join the Extreme Tour in the US to bring music to underserved communities and youth. She has played at the New Orleans House of Blues, made the finals in the Belk Southern Musician competition,  played at Sundance, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, SXSW and NAMM 2016. She has just released her newest project, the Heartbreak Is Contagious EP with songs written with and produced by Morgan Taylor Reid and Alexander Cardinale.  And she joins us this Friday with songs from the new EP, and an old favorite or two.


    Jessica Rotter is an LA-based singer  with a unique musical  history – her grandfather wrote songs for musical icons like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. The family talent rubbed off early; Jessica was 4 years old when she started singing. Which may be why her songs and her voice are achingly beautiful and have been heard in movies like Perfect Pitch 1 & 2 and Frozen as well as TV shows and commercials and  in backing vocals and collaborations. The list of artists she has worked with reads like a who's who of the music industry today: Daft Punk, Carole King, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and others. She has released a new album, Plains, following the success of charting #1 on HypeMachine with her mashup of “Stay/Animal “. We were at the lauch party for the album and we ahve the songs - and some of the behinds the scenes stories. Tune in for a chat with a TV star from a Hollywood music family and a blockbuster debut album.
