Chrissy DePauw…the name might ring a bell…the voice might be familiar…and she hasn't even released an album on itunes. This San Diego native has been gracing the streets of Santa Monica promenade with her angelic voice and sincere lyrics for the past 4 years. Selling over 30,000 cd's completely independently, Chrissy's music began spreading like wildfire, catapulting her to the top of the indie MySpace music charts. The path that followed let to song placements in the dance flick Honey 2, millions of online plays, a Christmas duet with Bing Crosby featured on an NBC Sounds of the Season CD sold in Target stores nationwide, and sharing the stage with friends such as Colbie Caillat, Javier Colon, Andy Grammar and John West. She is now also heavily involved with label mates The Ivy Walls, lending her voice to nearly half of the tracks on their latest album "Dirty Passionate Daydreaming" and recently appeared in their music video "all i want" featuring Chris Pine as the lead actor in their short film style video.
All of this before releasing her first full length LP. When asked why she has waited so long, she stated "I really wanted to do it right…build a fan base, get better at what I do, and lay a good foundation for a lasting career. The idea of finally releasing it still scares me a bit but I'm ready!" The album's lush landscape of dreamy guitar layers, sparkly synths, keys, strings, drums, bass, and at times even her piano player beatboxing, make for the perfect wrapping to her deliciously airy, sweet voice. Deep and rich at times, high and fluttering at others, but always the perfect tone to deliver her words of love, life and self acceptance.
