"Originality has met the world of pop music"

Looking more like a rock star’s trophy than the raw lyricist and performer that she is, this red-headed California native – coming at you straight outta Glendale – has been writing music since she was chasing the ice cream truck on the back of her purple shimmering schwinn but admits she wasn’t any good until she was old enough to get arrested.

Raised in a hippie house, Krissi Moses more than exploited all the wiggle room she was given to explore all of her artistic ambitions, before finally settling on the one consistent in her life: music. Her flirty fusion of reggae and rock delivers a rock-solid show and is a welcome and stand-out addition to this city’s ever-demanding music scene.

A chance to catch her live on stage is a pleasure and worth every penny and headache spent on parking.

The Krissi Moses experience feels like getting to steal a glimpse of a young Gwen Stefani when No Doubt was Sublime’s opening act.

The song "You’re Forgettable" is this generation’s answer to Alanis Morissette’s "You Outta Know" and promises to be this year’s break-up anthem (to be angrily sent from your iphone to your ex-boyfriend’s Blackberry).

Being in the know before your cousin in Wisconsin is one of the perks of being an Angelino -- But you’d better do it fast ’cause this omni-spunk is quickly emerging from her Glendale/Los Feliz roots.

"Saturday Night Magazine"

If you piss Krissi Moses off, she may give away your stuff and write a fierce song. The redhead with the smooth vocals and "alt rock with punk, ska and reggae" sound is just beginning. Her song, "You're Forgettable," is a defiant anthem with a catchy chorus and tandout lyrcs. Moses said it's all confessional. "'You're Forgettable' is almost word for word, me coming outt my first reationship... He's kind of a douche. I basically kicked him out. I put all his stuff in the driveway." If only he could hear her now. She also finds inspiration from The Beatles, Bob Marley, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and early No Doubt, but her influences may not come through in her songs.

Fans say then connect with Moses' music. It's all a rewarding labor of love. "Sometimes [my band] will get the music down or the melody won't quite be right. I'll think, 'What do I want to say? How can I fit that in there correctly?'" No worries. Moses works it out in the studio. And believe it or no, she's really into construction work, too. She can wire "anything from a car to a house." It's clear Moses is eclectic. Her music is equally as intriguing as she is.

Still working on that hot first release.



Los Angeles native Krissi Moses (now sharing compilation space at Virgin Megastores with Counting Crows, and adjusting to her sudden local fame in the LA rock scene) wrote her first song at 16 at the encouragement of “Slappy” (bassist of Bargain Music – a band credited with influencing the likes of LA legends Sublime and others). Saturday Night Magazine thinks “Slappy” is a pretty smart guy. The high-circulation college party rag recently selected Krissi from a gaggle of high-power, upcoming talent (including several new RCA, Geffen and Interscope installments) for their 5th annual Saturday Night Loud album (a series featuring many freshman acts gone global over the years, including breakout phenomenon Feist last year). Did we mention Krissi is also incredibly good-looking? Check out her hot pic on page 47 of Saturday Night’s May issue.

Originally courted by Columbia as a solo act, Krissi flouted the advice of her friends and family (a mere nine months ago), electing instead to assemble a band from scratch and work out her signature sound gigging live. It worked. Continuing to write, record, gig and explore new genres and sounds, Krissi’s newest material is a fresh blend of rock, pop, reggae, punk and funk, best characterized by her compilation track, You’re Forgettable (based wryly on her true-life first heartbreak – he’s kickin’ himself now). Currently completing her debut album in studio in Los Angeles, Krissi is repped by Davis Shapiro Lewit & Hayes.
