Meet Krista Angelucci, a Nashville singer/songwriter, originally from Billerica! 

Skilled and spirited…words that come to mind when listening to Krista Angelucci. She certainly has the skills, singing and performing for as long as she could speak. In fact, the concerts started in her living room as a very young girl, singing to Amy Grant songs. At 3 years old she would sing “Beauty and the Beast” over and over again for her family, who thought she sounded like a “sick rooster.” But that didn’t deter Krista and her love for music. Her energy is infectious, her warmth apparent… her vibe is definitely spirited! Angelucci’s crystal clear vocals make her message jump out, and keep her lyrics honest. She describes her sound as “rhythmic and hooky. Country with a twist of throwback pop.” Amy Grant is written all over her delivery. You may have seen Krista performing with various bands around New England, and on her own, before she made the trek to Nashville. Since she arrived she’s been busy performing all over the city, recording music and entertaining tourists while working part-time driving for the Pedal Tavern tours.

Krista Clear Sounds

On a recent visit back to Boston, Krista dropped in to perform a couple of songs. This single, “Boom Boom” was a originally pitched to Kellie Pickler. It was passed on, for sounding too young, so Krista released it herself. And it’s a great fit. Take a look and listen…

 

Krista digs deep to deliver this brand new original heart breaker, “Fake Girl.”

 

Check out Angelucci’s Nashville studio recording of “Boom Boom.”
