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 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, Krista 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 Country Female Entertainer of the Year and nominated for the New England Country Act of the Year. She was also a winner of Stars Over Boston.
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, Kip Moore and more. “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 released in 2016 was produced by Krista herself and Chris Parker. In 2018 she released one of her fan favorites – Fake Girl. This song not only comes from life’s experience, but is also one that is relatable to so many. As one fan put it, “I could have written it word for word”. Fake Girl was followed by the release of Krista’s most recent single, Jungle, in 2019. This song shows more of Krista’s playful side. You can find fans smiling and singing along - bringing them into the midst of the love story behind the lyrics. Keep an eye out for the upcoming music video to be released soon.
