EAST COAST BABY! I first discovered Chrissy by browsing Myspace music pages. This is something I like to do, so I can hear what’s fresh and new out there. Chrissy is as sweet as they come! She’s down to earth and real, plus eye candy for the fellas. She runs her own Myspace music page and comments you back in a personal way (none of that copy & paste stuff). Chrissy and I soon became coast to coast friends with respect to each others artistic abilities. She is a mixture of an Anime character, Hello Kitty, and an 80’s Gem doll all wrapped up in one perfect package. Her music is original like her song “Strut” or “Big.” She shows her ability to…

be diverse. She does not limit her sound to the same old thing. Each one of her songs has a different feel and vibe all together. Her songs will get stuck in your head and you will find yourself singing them at the most random times. I know I do (for example) “Tell me what your favorite kind-a slushy to drink. Do you like the red, green, the purple or pink?”

Don’t think she came out of no where though, Chrissy has been doing this for a real long time. There is a lot of information on her Mysapce page about her and her background. I am here just to let you know that Chrissy is not an artist to be passed up. I know that Chrissy will soon be larger than large.

Save her as a friend and don’t forget to let her know where you heard about her. Thanks and enjoy the music. - Lainie

StarShine’s Pennsylvania friend, Chrissy is an up & coming singer managed by the Wright
Entertainment Group. Her name and music have been floating around the internet for years now. Chrissy has
been StarShine’s best kept secret for a while and we’re excited the rest of the world is finally starting to let the
secret out!

Her songs "Strut" and "My Slushy" are edgy and fun with infectious beats. Both songs bring an old school flavor to
danceable pop. Chrissy isn’t just another pop princess though, she screams girl power proudly with self-described
"bubbly" tunes and with eccentric beauty that could be packaged into a Bratz Doll. Chrissy has the powerhouse
vocals of Mariah Carey with all the individuality of Gwen Stefani and the musical stylings of every eclectic artist in
between. Chrissy’s rock-tinged "I Took Your Boyfriend" and "Lucky Number" expresses that diversity.

Though still without a record label backing her, Chrissy’s songs have been featured on Fox’s Prison Break and ‘N
Sync’s Joey Fatone liked her so much, he used one of Chrissy’s songs on his personal My Space page.

Like her music, Chrissy’s fan base is diversifying rapidly. "I might have the kid who listens to mainstream pop who
likes me, but I might have the punk kid like me too. I like having that versatility." Chrissy explains.

Now with a great management team behind her, Chrissy feels confident a record deal will be soon to follow. "It
was always my dream to be managed by WEG. I knew at some point in my heart that I would find my way to them."

Chrissy is currently in the studio with producer, Alex Greggs, who worked on ‘N Sync’s albums, No Strings
Attached and Celebrity. Keep an eye out for this girl - she’s sure to be the next big thing! In the mean time, you
can listen to her album Relentless on itunes.com. Make sure you check out her My Space page:

This maybe a tad commercial for many but I like the tunes on this EP. Chrissy has a similar vocal range to that of christina Aguilera and this shows on the opening track ´Big´ and ´I Took Your Boy Friend´. There´s also some Bif Naked influence on a couple of numbers too. With the style of Power Pop tunes in support of Chrissy´s voice I can see this lady doing something special in the future. There´s 7 tracks on this disc and I think all of them are worthy of a listen though I really like ´Big´ and ´Gonna Be´. Production is tops as you would expect from a commerical recording. Yeah it´s kinda cool to chill out to something new. I like it. (Boston Fashion And Music) 8.5/10

Bio

Chrissy has a lifetime of music experience, and a lot to show for it. With her music being produced by some of the same people who help internationally famous artists shine, being featured in prime time television, and reaching over a million hits on Clear Channel’s “Discover New Music” site – you know the girl’s on her way.
Her music, which she describes as “alternative pop,” has drawn the attention of people who would know talent when they hear it. For a year and a half she was part of the talent roster of Johnny Wright’s WEG – Wright Entertainment Group, where her fellow artists were Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson and the Jonas Bros., to name a few. It was there that she became the protégé of superproducer Alex Greggs (who has produced songs for Justin and Janet, *NSYNC, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Kelis, Beck, Brandy, Duran Duran, Lily Allen, Pussycat Dolls and many others), who produced her recent songs “Diddy Do Da” and her cover of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley (Teenage Wasteland),” and another single is currently in the works.
Chrissy has also collaborated with platinum producers Dow Brain and Brad Young of Underground Productions (LFO, Aerosmith, Boston, Tracy Bonham), as well as the co-writer of her song “Big,” Rich Cronin (also of LFO and also VH1’s Mission: Man Band), and next in the works will be a new song, “Can’t Play a Player,” written for Chrissy by new American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi. Another of Chrissy’s cowriters is Taryn Murphy (whose credits include Mariah Carey’s “Wisegurls”). Other collaborators include Deanna Dellacciopa (music featured on MTV’s Laguna Beach: The Real O.C.) and Sam Conjerti, writer for LFO and co-writer of Chrissy’s songs “My Slushy” and “Danger.” And in addition to working with the prestigious production team of Alex Greggs and Dennis Shaw of South Rakkas Crew, she’s teamed up with producers Joe Bermudez and Chico (known for producing remixed dance versions of hits for Kelly Clarkson, Hillary Duff, Katy Perry, Pink, Nelly Furtado, etc.) and her most recent songs “Skinny Jeans” and “Step-Off” resulted from that collaboration.
Her travels have also intersected the paths of some other notable music professionals. Her fans have long known her as the webmistress and “go-to” girl for powerpop/experimental rock groups Head Automatica and Glassjaw, fronted her by longtime friend Daryl Palumbo, which had her working closely with Warner Bros./Reprise Records Publicity, mentored by Jeff Watson (Linkin Park). She has also planned forthcoming collaborations with producers Rob Fusari (Lady GaGa) and Soul Diggaz (Madonna, Britney, Missy Elliott, etc.)
A true student of music, Chrissy can cite influences ranging back through five decades, and she prides herself on being savvy about the business end of the industry as well. Her encyclopedic appreciation and knowledge base extends from the music makers to the decision makers, and while with WEG she was tapped as an ambassador to host Grammy (NARAS) panel discussions. A whiz at self-promotion, she was one of the first artists to discover MySpace and has built a rabid fan base there. She brought her songs “Strut” and “Real Woman” to ClearChannel.com where she was designated “Most Played Unsigned Artist” for several months in a row, with “Strut” reaching upwards of a million and a half spins, and counting. She was the #1 artist on Podshow.com with “I Took Your Boyfriend” and on the IAC Music Big 50 Chart with “My Slushy.” Chrissy’s songs have received extensive airplay throughout the internet and around the world on terrestrial radio as well. Her music has also been featured on television: “Real Woman” on Fox’s Prison Break, and “Gonna Be” on both Showtime’s Masters of Horror and Oxygen’s Pop School, the latter using the song as its main theme.
With extensive lifelong experience ranging from dozens of theatre productions to television appearances (including Star Search and the WB’s Popstars), training in all music genres at prestigious institutions as well as dancing, acting, modeling and more, Chrissy has the chops. With her unique beauty and captivating demeanor, she’s got the looks and the moves. Staunchly moral, she can still be the playful “bad girl” onstage who won’t become tabloid fodder in real life, and she often donates her time performing for charity and does volunteer work with at-risk kids in her community. Her sweet smile and innocent face may mask the complexity of the soul within, but Chrissy is a serious, unwavering music professional who knows the blood, sweat and tears of her chosen path, and who has the maturity and dedication to face the road ahead.
