Krissy Krissy Joins Girl In a Coma & Hunter Valentine on Tour!



Fall Tour Dates Just Announced

Brooklyn, NY - 23-year-old out singer, songwriter, musician Krissy Krissy will be hitting the road together with all-female bands Hunter Valentine and Girl in A Coma for a Fall Tour.  A 20 plus- date adventure across the U.S. and Canada that kicks off on September 8th in Nashville, TN, and then continues throughout October. 

The bands have officially announced a string of dates for the series of shows that sees Hunter Valentine and Girl in A Coma co-headlining with support from Krissy Krissy  (See tour dates below).

Praised as being a powerful vocal house, California native/Brooklyn raised, Krissy Krissy has been making tremendous strides in a very short period of time.

From garnering a quarter million views in just two days for her debut single “Dreams,”  to a top record on I Heart Radio, to an MTV Buzzworthy Feature, to a #1 spot on MTVU "Freshman Pick of The Week, Krissy Krissy continues to break new ground.  

Growing up in a Pentecostal church, “the white girl who has soul” was quickly nicknamed “Frederica” for her musical influence spawning from the likes of Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin, to Aretha Franklin. She was kicked out of choir and church at age 15 for kissing a girl; moved out of her family-of-8’s crowded two-bedroom apartment at 17; and was soon after discovered at a local karaoke bar in Brooklyn.

Since releasing her new EP "Above All" last Fall to great success, Krissy Krissy has been garnering impressive media coverage turning up everywhere from the pages of HIts Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Hype Magazine, MTV Buzzworthy, to URB and AOL Feature, to name a few.

Not one to rest on her laurels, Krissy Krissy is now working on her new album. She is also currently running a social media contest, giving away $1,000 to the person that posts the craziest picture of her new cut out cartoon on Instagram:

Music's new "it" girl is definitely on the move and making a lot of noise!

Krissy Krissy is beyond excited to be embarking on this tour alongside acts of the caliber of Hunter Valentine and Girl In A Coma. 

Coming straight out of starring in Season 3 of Showtime's hit reality series The Real L Word   into the release of their third studio album, titled Collide & Conquer, no one can deny the momentum behind rockers HUNTER VALENTINE

The in-your-face buzz-heavy all-girl rock band, formed by Kiyomi McCloskey (lead vocals/guitarist) and Laura Petracca (drummer), has unequivocally established itself as a veritable powerhouse that is exploding onto the mainstream. Averaging some 200+ tour dates a year all over the world including the Sum 41 tour and more recently The Cindy Lauper "She's So Unusual" tour, Hunter Valentine have never been more primed to take the musical world by storm (

If anything is big in Texas, it's certainly the buzz around San Antonio's friend/sister trio, Girl in a Coma. Discovered and signed by Joan Jett after participating in a cable TV show called 'Jammin',' the three girls took their punk tinged soulful tunes and charted iTunes and Billboard. They've opened for bands like Tegan and Sara, Social Distortion and Morrissey. With a total of four albums worth of high-end singles and retro covers, they have earned the attention of many industry veterans and celebrities alike, including James Franco, who recently directed a series of commercials for Stuart Weitzman shoes, using the girls’ sultry cover of “Walkin’ After Midnight.” (

Get ready for the all-female artists invasion! New music, new tour dates and bigger sound will be coming to a city near you this Fall.

Please note that the September 8th show in Nashville is Hunter Valentine and Krissy Krissy only. Also, all shows after the Chicago date are as well only Hunter Valentine and Krissy Krissy.

More dates  to be added.

Designer Creates LGBT-friendly Wedding Jewellery

Ben Bridge Jeweler, one of the biggest independently owned jewelry chains in the country, is now marketing to the LGBT community by stocking a jewelry collection whose very reason for being is to celebrate same-sex marriages.

The Seattle-based chain, which operates 70 stores primarily in the western United States,  has added Rony Tennenbaum Jewelry to its bridal cases in its Tacoma and Spokane locations. Rony Tennenbaum has been revolutionizing the bridal jewelry industry with 25 years of experience creating engagement, wedding, and anniversary rings for same-sex couples. But the pickup by Ben Bridge marks the company's first-ever chain retailer account. 

Rony introduced his own collection after recognizing the need for LGBT wedding jewelry that went beyond the stereotypical rainbows and triangles. According to the designer Engagement and wedding rings should proclaim love, not sexual orientation. 

Rony Tennenbaum’s unique pieces are built with fashion in mind and driven by classic, timeless features.  By using EcoGold in most of his creations, he guarantees that no toxins or waste materials are dumped into the environment. In addition, his strong beliefs in bringing well-needed jobs back to the US encouraged Rony to make sure most of his jewelry is locally made.

The partnership between Ben Bridge and Rony Tennenbaum Jewelry is not only a perfect match but also timely. The same sex wedding market is burgeoning nationally creating a boom in the LGBT bridal industry in key cities.

Ben Bridge travels the world in search of unique designs and the highest quality diamonds, colored gemstones, and fine timepieces and is excited to continue its tradition of offering fine jewelry with the addition of Tennenbaum’s collection.

Janis Ian to Record New Audio Book "When Women Were Warriors"

Guffey, CO, July 21, 2013– Dog Ear Audio is proud to announce that Janis Ian, singer, songwriter, author, multiple Grammy and Audie Award winner, will be narrating Book 1 of the highly acclaimed trilogy by Catherine M. Wilson, “When Women Were Warriors”.

“When Women Were Warriors” is an amazing piece of writing. The story is mesmerizing and to have
the incomparable Janis Ian narrate Book 1, is equally wonderful.’ states Karen Wolfer, owner and
founder of Dog Ear Audio.
"All the women of my family had gone to war... Now my turn had come...So it is the custom that a free woman leave her mother's house to bind herself and those of her blood to a neighboring clan, either by the sword or by the cradle." So begins the story of young Tamras, as she embarks on her journey to become a warrior's apprentice. But this epic story is not about battles and armor, but rather about relationships, coming of age and wisdom, and deep insights into the human experience.

Janis Ian had originally posted this review on “On vacation with my trusty Kindle, I read through it in two days and was so taken with the characters that I ordered the second and third in the series.” She gave it five stars and the author took note. A few years later, the two met after one of Ian’s concert appearances. Says the singer “I was so excited to meet her, I blurted out ‘Hey, I just won a Grammy for “Best Spoken Word – Society’s Child”, and I’m looking for more narration work, if you ever want to make an audiobook....”

The author, Catherine M. Wilson is thrilled that Janis will be handling the narration duties: “I admire Janis both as an artist and as a person. Her remarkable career and personal history make her the ideal narrator for the story of Tamras, the reluctant hero." As Catherine says of her book, “…the hero’s journey is the story of a person finding her own path through life. By doing so, she encourages us all to live our own unique lives as fully as we can. But just like the rest of us, Tamras pays a price for going her own way, and one of the things that make her a hero is her ability and her willingness to pay that price.”

In the spirit of creative independence, Dog Ear Audio will be utilizing Kickstarter, the popular crowd-funding organization whose purpose is,”…to help bring creative projects to life.” Backers support the “dream to create something that they want to see exist in the world.” Once we reach our goal, a percentage of any extra funds will be donated to the Pearl Foundation ( The Pearl Foundation was created by Janis in honor of her mother. “Knowledge is the greatest gift one can offer”, the website states, and its purpose is to offer scholarships to students who have been away from school for five years or more.
