Chrissy is a juggler of sorts that is full of life and “all about the light”.  She is a bright, Heads Up penny that is all shiny inside and out.  Chrissy has a demanding schedule taking on many different roles within the music and entertainment industries but her most important job title is being a Humanitarian and to just be a decent, charitable human being at the end of the day.  She said it best here: “my volunteer work is the life blood and heart of my material!”  Chrissy proves to have a big heart who loves to give back and her vibrant spirit, voice & music shines through with flying colors.

J Rae: So you go by Chrissy and have a number of catchy stage titles attached to your name like “Songbird” but I want to get to the bottom of who the real Chrissy is deep down.  Can you strip away all of the glitz & glam for a moment and give us a true glimpse of Chrissy, raw and uncut?

Chrissy: Hello to you too, J! Every time I see your name, I think of that song, “Are You Jimmy Ray?”, ha ha! I want to preface that query with the fact that I did not choose my name! It’s not a “stage name” in that sense. My real name is Chrissy, short for Christina, and it was a family homage to Suzanne Somers’ “Three’s Company” character, Chrissy, who is called Christmas Noelle “Chrissy” Snow. We’ve always used my same childhood name for my artist name since there was already the legendary, established artist, Teena Marie (Christine), another exceptional artist, Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, a budding Christina Aguilera in my same area, approximately coming up around the same time that I was as a kid, as well as a gorgeous synchronized swimmer who went on to be the star of Cirque du Soleil’s famed “O” show and Olympian with my same name, so we absolutely did not want to utilize the full name, or a polynym from a marketing perspective anyway. The mononym suits me best, as it’s what my grandparents called me, and everyone for that matter. When you think of a Chrissy, you think of some sort of zippy, quirky individual, so I reckon I was aptly named. Other artists like Madonna, Prince, Fergie, and Cher are dubbed mononymously as well.

As for the Twitter handle, “Songbird”, that’s actually not referring to me, it is a line from the comedy portion of Michael Jackson’s “Moonwalker”, a favorite of mine, befittingly. Not that I’m incapable of chirping a melodic tune, but it would seem haughty to refer to myself as a “songbird”, Passeriformes, as they’re such stunning and awe-inspiring creatures, I’m not worthy of any such title. Thank you for asking, the raw and uncut Chris is less than tantalizing.  The authentic Chrissy is a writer, a bibliophile, and believe it or not, extremely traditional in a sense.  Strip away the color and glitter and most would say I’m a quiet, introverted, generally awkward human being in social situations. Kind of a hermit, although not utterly disconnected from humanity. Odd, as I’m in a line of work that’s communication-based, eh. This is why many so-called shy children turn to the arts, as it’s an avenue to express themselves, a true time to shine when they go into character. Finally, some people say I’m funny, in a classic, vaudevillian “clown princess” type of way, silly, my musical theater background, you know, a mensch-like quality, I suppose. Tomboy crossed with feminine traits. That’s sincerely me! I really like the famous “We Are The World” quote, more like myth, “check your ego at the door”. I don’t hold myself in high esteem whatsoever, but an interesting bullet point about me is that I comprise of having had a lifetime of experience in the old show business game, and can always benefit from sage advice! I somehow am an optimist and an iconoclast at the very same time. How’s that?

J Rae: You appear to have a very bright and colorful personality at first glance I have to say.   And I was hoping you could display this characteristic trait through vibrant words of your own to give the Skope audience a little dose of Chrissy Pizzazz!

Chrissy: Ya know what, J? I’m of the mind that there’s a great deal of darkness in this world, I won’t deny it, nor pretend that it doesn’t exist, dystopian type atmosphere, thus, if I can be a lamp unto the world, and somehow bring some semblance of joy a person’s way, a thing I’ve strived and have been taught to do from an early age, then, my goal is achieved. I believe that may be the colorfulness and brightness that you’re referring to. It’s as simple as this, I want to deliver, I want to bring forth happiness, entertainment, a message, material with intrinsic value to raise a good vibration. I want to emote, and make a connection. It’s a core part of my belief system. Music is rocking on a much lower vibration now than it once was, so, there are challenges, but the legacy artists shall always reign supreme in my book, and they are who I look to for that moxie. Deriving inspiration from these folks is the greatest tool; the mind is oh so strong and oh so untapped. I continue to try to inject more and more light into things, not in a contrived way, of course, it’s merely who I am.

The pizzazz that you speak of is a concoction of sparkles and light. I’m all about the light. The flair that you’re referring to might stem from the fact that I’m a sponge, I’m always open to learn and absorb, truly absorb. One can learn something new every day if they wish! That’s important, and I believe that may be what you initially picked up on. I’m constantly gleaning, taking a piece, putting it into the mental computer, adding it to my patchwork quilt, and it manifests itself as what you folks dubbed my “gusto”. I’m a unique gal, perhaps even an odd gal to someone who is not artistically or cerebrally inclined, but that’s okay, as we know there is duality in this life, which I learn and appreciate more and more as I grow. Hope this sheds some light, no pun intended! I believe there’s always something to be happy about, that may be easier said than done for some, but, keep pushing ahead. The eye is the lamp of the body. Perhaps it sounds undignified and manipulative, but, if I can provide a distraction or diversion from the muck and the mire in an uplifting fashion, so be it. I have certain quirks and patterns. Life is about giving, being open, helping others, and building communities. I still believe in magic and good art, despite all of the junk percolating in the proverbial pot. I believe in everyone’s gifts and talents. I still believe that good art will ever glowingly prevail. It is best to remain humble in spirit, isn’t it?

J Rae: I can’t help but notice you’re a major presence in the music and entertainment industries serving as a:  singer/songwriter, multi instrumentalist, vocal arranger/producer, dancer/choreographer, director, music supervisor/DJ, international presenter host, pin-up model, actress/comedienne and life coach.  How do you juggle all of this?  And when you’re able to come up for air and relax how do you unwind? 

Chrissy: Indeed, I am an extremely busy chickadee, multi faceted, which is helpful, after all, we’re multidimensional human beings, and should be permitted to operate as such. I am able to juggle this type of lifestyle because I’ve been doing it since I was a wee kiddo. In fact, I think I worked harder as a kid than I work now! Honestly!  Again, an entire life in the arts, and having to find balance within the infrastructure (or sometimes lack thereof) of a hectic entertainment industry schedule. Not much has changed in terms of that, I still don’t have a “traditional” schedule per se, and am hard pressed to obtain a day off, but, to answer your question, when I am not consumed by any of the aforementioned duties, I relish simple treasures and projects like arts and crafts, the DIY genre, thrifting and flea markets, food truck culture, vintage culture, toys and instruments, and of course, reading a new book every week, when possible. I enjoy learning about food, geography, terrain, theology, mythology, and the under belly of world history. I’ve always daydreamed about having a program where I could interview restaurateurs from all over the globe, and, or tour Americana style diners driving across the United States and Canada. 50’s and 60’s music would be included, along with neo-pinup girls.

J Rae: You’ve dubbed your music style as “Alternative Pop” and wonder if you could delve more into this for the Skope viewers? 

Chrissy: That’s a loaded baked potato of a question! It’s kind of a nebulous term, ya know. #AlternativePop is the genre I branded myself as early on, and others looked at me that way as well. As a child recording act, and even into my teens, everyone who encountered me artistically shared a kindred frustration and lament that almost always consisted of the phrase they “didn’t know what to do with me” or make of me, or, they didn’t “know” what they could contribute to the project, as I was an eclectic, indefinable, yet distinct fusion of rock, really alternative rock, soul, and musical theater with a confusing, polished “pop radio” voice, which should ideally translate into a pristine package with a little something for everyone, but few wanted to put the work in along with me. It perplexed collaborators and producers who were involved with me early on in my career, thrown off by what they perceived as a metal head loving, melodically soulful, theater kid. In hindsight, I don’t fully understand what was so odd about it considering the fact that people like (I know, lists that don’t even scratch the surface, as there are so many) Prince, Bjork, Toto, Blondie, Talking Heads, Teena Marie, Cake, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Joe Jackson, Warren Zevon, Anthrax, B-52’s, Elvis Costello, Culture Club, Sade, Question Mark and the Mysterians, Kenny Loggins, America, Steely Dan, Fiona Apple, David bowie, Sting, Lauryn Hill, Robert Palmer, Utada, Beck, Gwen Stefani, Kelis, Peaches, 311, Go Go’s, Joey and the Starlighters, Depeche Mode, Supertramp, Rick James, Ace of Base, and of course Michael Jackson, all multi genre hybrid artists and acts, always existed in some capacity, fusing rock, soul, electronic dance, funk, punk, world, reggae, acoustic, and that icky, taboo word, “pop” (sometimes even the early seeds of rap and disco in the case of what I call the legacy artists) together seamlessly.

As a child, what I was mainly exposed to was classical, orchestral, big band, and 50’s music from my Nana, blues, rock, jazz, and organ based church music from my grandfather, punk, new wave, NY hardcore, ska, metal, electronic, indie, funk, house, and the early droplets of hip hop from my Uncle, and then, my Mother was deeply entrenched in the so called blue eyed soul genre, melodic, soft rock, 60’s music, smooth jazz, and charming things such as The Muppets and David Seville, the Bagdasarian family, Mitch Miller, and the like. Those influences, coupled with my musical theater and opera training instituted from childhood spewed forth a Linda Blair type soup dubbed “alternative pop”. My music is really just straight forward pop rock, alt rock, power pop, theater, soul similar to old school r&b or du wop with my harmony work, and of course the heavy embers of new wave with punk and post hardcore values, rolled into a colorful and emotive exterior or elixir.

At the risk of sounding mildly arrogant, I don’t care if it doesn’t make sense to anyone, as it doesn’t have to. Music is music, and labels are for soup cans. I’m not a jaded individual, in fact I’m exceedingly grateful and open, however, I’ve been germinating, bubbling under for years, and years, and have been held back for so long in a sense to even care what folks think of my vocals or music in general, as I’ve become such an “underground” artist over the years, heading further and further under the fur, it seems, as the major labels aren’t putting forth loans to sign organic acts that often in the current musical climate. That may not sound very likable or inviting, perhaps it sounds undignified and even a wee bit callous, but it’s a reality for an indie artist who feels they’ve been grossly underestimated. In that same regard, no one owes anyone anything, and no one has the right to act like an ungrateful, spoiled brat just because they don’t feel their talents are being exalted, or even monetized, yikes. A natural gift is just that, a gift. We should use our gifts to the best of our abilities, and if the by product is some kind of notoriety, or opportunity to put your material out into the world on a major scale, if you want to, that is, super, but, if it never happens, perhaps, it wasn’t part of the plan, and maybe there are reasons for not receiving that so called worldly adulation. As I got older, and learned how the industry worked, I started making peace with those aspects of the entertainment business. Once I understood that talent had very little to do with the bigger picture and end game, I was able to not get hung up on these factors and keep lamenting about them. It’s not constructive; in fact, it’s self destructive to keep harping on about it. Everyone possesses gifts, use them, or don’t. Use them, or lose them.

A line from “Purple Rain” seems to come to mind, “your music makes sense to no one….but yourself.” The first and only producer and co collaborator who accepted my art for art’s sake was my friend, and multi platinum co producer, Alex Greggs, who worked with many of the rad folks I mentioned at the top of this answer. To pontificate, I really like to use the metaphor of the patchwork quilt, sewing together everything I’ve been through musically, that’s “alt pop” right there. I think I’m the anti pop star in many aspects, however, my exterior and image I’d think would appear commercial and marketable to some. Ain’t that a mind bender?

Congratulations, us musicians, we’re human beings, artistic ones at that, and possess many layers to boot! The onion with a multitude of levels still thrives in this processed age. One may assume that a versatile, well rounded artist with universal appeal might be a terrific thing for a record label, but from a business and marketing perspective, it can be such a nightmare when you don’t fit into a nifty, little box. Still, I stand by the fact that alternative pop is music for the masses, music of the people, believe it, or not. There is an undeniable emotional connection when it comes to alternative artists, and a play on one’s emotions.

J Rae: How is your Alt/Pop music different from the rest and what makes your sound stand out as unique and original?  What can listeners expect to hear from Chrissy that they’ve never heard before?

Chrissy: Mmm, there’s nothing new under the sun, however, the aim is to always bring some measure of refreshment to the table, which is what I’ve been endeavoring, certainly trying to do for years now. I think my hope and sincerity shines through during times of hopelessness, trying times where people are looking for some comfort, relatability, and maybe even a little escapism, but not so far fetched that the material doesn’t contain the human touch. I reckon that my sincere and truly genuine care for the art and craft does make me different, as I’ve seen several different incarnates of the recording industry, it’s changed so much from when I was little and first starting out. I am unique, as I’m an odd amalgamation of the artists of the past, old soul with a new, very determined spin since we have to do things so differently now within music, and there’s almost a sense of desperation in the game in this day and age. My music tells real life stories, scenarios, and I’m the true “hometown” girl in that regard. I’m a cheerleader for humanity. It’s a utopian dream, I relish the saying that love should ideally triumph, and it always shall because you just can’t win any other way.

In terms of what’s never been seen before, I think people will see that when I’m finally rolled out on a scale that’s not just so called “indie”, underground, or behind the scenes, as I have been, you may see a few gifts and nuances that aren’t uber typical of a so called mainstream pop artist. Honestly, my deep love, reverence, obsession with the past and hungrily honoring legacy artists with encyclopedic knowledge to the point of exhaustion is what sets me apart universally. And just like your Skope Magazine music review writer, Beach Sloth said, I am a kaleidoscopic swirl of all of the genres of music smashed together, so I suppose that that can be perceived as “different” right there. In all frankness, your music critic hit the nail on the head in terms of what’s different about me.

J Rae: I read that you’ve worked with many talented artists/entertainers over time and wondering if you could describe some of your most memorable collaborations/encounters to date?

Chrissy: Yes, I’ve had many opportunities to work with some amazing names, be associated and signed to some incredible companies and deals in the past, I crossed paths with many of the greats, and have made very special friends along the way. As to respect privacy of certain artists, their families, and other confidentiality agreements, I will keep this section reticent, but I specifically have fantastic memories and encounters with musical mentors Culture Club, Kenny Loggins, Teena Marie, and other musical heroes within the rock genre. I also have a great friendship with the band, Alien Ant Farm, who have been supportive and helpful since way back, and both that particular band and I cherish and revere fun times and moments with various members of the Jackson family, more musical mentors and inspirations, the Jacksons. They are certainly my favorite, they’ve been through so much, and always come out on top, especially MJ. Having been blessed to have been able to see artists like Michael Jackson, and Prince perform and play live, I certainly feel lucky; it enriched and shaped my life. I was formally on WEG Music, so, past roster and label mates there included Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Jonas Brothers, Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Wild Orchid (Fergie’s initial project which included Ron Fair’s wife, super writer Stefanie Ridel Fair, and Renee Sands from smash hit TV show, “Kids Incorporated”), Akon, Nsync, Ciara, Menduo, New Kids On the Block, Danity Kane, Backstreet Boys, and more. Even Incubus, Acceptance, and Melissa Gorga are on WEG now! Such an honor to have rolled through those doors.

Someone who also helped early on was the hit maker, the late Rich Cronin of multi platinum, Clive Davis mentored LFO, working on my material, as well as Vanessa Amorosi, multiple ARIA award winner, often times referred to as the “Madonna of Australia”, in addition to this, many other outstanding, Grammy award winning collaborators and pals have helped me along the way. At one point, Lance Bass from Nsync had his own company, Free Lance Entertainment, and label, and I was in talks with them to be an artist there, but then, Nsync really exploded, and he didn’t have as much time. Lance’s family was so good to me, and I will never forget their kindness, care, and hospitality. I also once worked for WBR/Reprise records and WEA, pushing their alternative rock and heavier bands in the new media and publicity dept, so I have some wonderful memories from those days as well. Out of all of the major labels, I felt that WBR actually cared about artistic integrity the most. I realize Prince had his ups and downs with them, but he also said he had some special memories there as well. I don’t think all of it is a horrible thing per se. In roads brought me back to Warner again this past year when I was up for TouchTunes jukeboxes international “breakout band”. I also work with Christophe Piot from All Right Music, his biggest success is David Guetta, and he was the former creative director for MCA Records in Europe.

Although I’ve named just a smattering, all of these experiences meant a great deal to me, and I don’t take any of them for granted. Who knows if or when Warner and I may cross paths again. I also grew up in a exceptional music scene, and got to work on exciting tours like Ozzfest, Warped Tour, and was involved with events like Skate and Surf, Bamboozle, Saints and Sinners, and shows at CBGB’s, The End, the old Meadowlands, just classic punk and underground music venues, which were poignant for me during my malleable years. I spent many years observing outstanding bands like Glassjaw from the wings at small club and sometimes even house gigs, then, they moved onto bigger venues and fests, it impacted me deeply, the emotional connection with stellar bands! Hope this gives you a small measure of understanding about my favorite moments with the so called “big names” and companies. Although I may have been around “pop” stars at times, I was kind of a rocker at heart, and never quite fit in entirely. Good times, none the less! I also got to work with exceptionally good, classic musical and theater stars growing up, some of the best stage directors as well such as Ron Nakahara of the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre and Barry Kornhauser, so all of those go into the cognizance file, that’s for sure.

J Rae: You definitely seem to live a fast-paced, interesting life so would you mind taking us through a typical day for Chrissy?  Feel free to provide details on all of your different job roles and what they each mean to you.

Chrissy: Indeed, I do. Interesting, in an odd ball way, for sure! Thanks for asking, my days are a hodge podge of personal and artistic commitments, and contrary to what people may think, indie entertainers do not make significant money at all since a lot of my work is charity and non profit based. When I don’t have the recording studio, shoots, dance rehearsals, blocking, personal appearances, and other gigs, I have to work a menagerie of so called hourly jobs, even ostensible menial jobs at times; I have done everything from working at a 99 cents store, to cleaning bathrooms, to running a pizza parlor, and picking berries. I am a fitness presenter and am a personal trainer and coach for NASM and AFAA, so I get to travel, teach, and work with amazing clients. I am also an aquatic instructor, a Zumba and Zumba specialties instructor, yoga Pilates teacher, and I teach aerial arts/cirque arts, burlesque chair dance, hula, martial arts, gymnastics, theater, music and voice lessons to all ages, with an emphasis on the youth. In addition to these commitments, I have a very interesting job as an archivist for an antiquarian seminary book store, which requires a great deal of detail work, and focus, highly fastidious.

I work with seniors, children, and the handicapped as well in the human services field, and other community outreach programs such as before and after school programs, and the like. I am deeply entrenched in the local schools, senior care homes and assisted living communities where my services are often requested. A typical, but not so typical by mainstream standards day might begin with having to do an exceedingly early morning workout consisting of elements of whatever project or style I’m working on at the moment, whether I like it or not, I have to be on an inordinately disciplined regimen; interviews and promotional runs like this may follow, rehearsals, shoots, meetings, recording studio, a snack, recording indie radio drops, writing sessions or production for other artists, sync opps, conferences, music lessons, lesson plans, maybe personal training clients or teaching my many dance classes, sometimes a gig, personal appearance, ribbon cutting, night club appearance, show, at times, a hosting job, emceeing, teaching a hen party for girls at the aerial studio, deejaying, tour, or some other type of arts commitment that runs late night. That’s sort of a breakdown regarding what might occur from day to day for an indie act, travel is included.

I also have Cerebral palsy and Down syndrome clients I work with several times a week, who are very special to me because of how talented and tenacious they are! Spunky, quirky, and so intelligent! They inspire me daily, thus, I am thankful and enthused by these exhilarating, and edifying moments. Even if I never have the opportunity to sign or be involved with a major entertainment company ever again, I have my humanitarian work and passion for human and social services to carry me through, as a calling, however, I do feel my energies are best invested in the arts, where both worlds seem to collide.

J Rae:  Your song “Me Without You” is one catchy tune that is getting a lot of spins & attention and is from the “Music Monsters” video game.  For all the gamers and video game enthusiasts out there, can you please tell the Skope Universe more about this?  How did the song and game come about?

Chrissy: Thanks! Regarding “Me Without You”, that was an organic song that came to pass due to a collaboration between a rad team of people I was working with from Nashville, the Meckel family, Mark and Nathan Meckel, who are Grammy winners (Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Jo Dee Messina, Emmylou Harris), and their friend, Burton Collins, who is also a Grammy nominee and writer for Celine Dion, Reba McEntire, and Trisha Yearwood. Everyone teamed up with my producer friends, multi platinum team, Underground Productions, and that’s when the fun happened. During this time, Music Powered Games reached out to me and asked me to help score and contribute material to a new version of their successful video game, entitled “Music Monsters”. I was no neophyte to the video game music supervisory process, due to having had two indie hits with “Strut” and “My Slushy” from the video game, “Audition” from Red Bana, paired with over 2 million spins on Clear Channel’s I Heart Music and I Heart Radio. The “Music Monsters” game included tunes from Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Fallout Boy, FLO rida, Skillet, Cher Lloyd, Metro Station, The Ready Set, and more, so of course I was honored to be asked to contribute some lead material on the latest version of the game since it seemed to feature eclectic and unique artists. The game can be played on Facebook, and it’s in the Apple store as well. The app is on my FB page for those who may want to try it. It would mean a lot to me if Skope readers were able to pick up “Me Without You”, as it’s available in all of the online music shops including Apple Music iTunes, Google Play Store, Yahoo, Spotify, and the like. Simply search Me Without You by Chrissy, or go here, https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/me-without-you-single/id870538111

J Rae: I would love to know more about your charitable work/contributions, which looks to be a big part of your life.  What causes/organizations mean the most to you and why?

Chrissy: Definitely, my volunteer work is the life blood and heart of my material! I am “Miss Pennsylvania” for the “Hometown Pinup Company”, where I serve as a charitable ambassador. Current projects include a round up of new household cleaning products and goods for Milagro House, our “Togetherhood” project for the YMCA which helps homeless women and children get on their feet. Anyone who wants to participate can find the info on my social media pages. I round up and contribute supplies for Caitlin’s Smiles, which is an organization that puts together arts and crafts kits for terminally ill children; it’s such a fantastic program that brings comfort and sunshine to kids with life threatening conditions. Other projects include United Way (where I give free Zumba classes), “Widow to Widow” senior’s program, Community Action Program, the AOA active older adult program (go to my pages for info on the AOA holiday social and awards ceremony), Senator Smucker’s Kids Day & Expo, the Tommy Foundation for autism awareness and resources, Zumbathon, Coats for Kids, Presley Ridge – giving career guidance, wellness education, and motivational classes to teen mothers at a local high school, YWCA Charity Bazaar, the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, and several other projects pertaining to bringing the arts to schools and centers where the money for arts and entertainment programming has been cut such as music lessons, dance lessons, artists rights, helping struggling artists, and more, all pro bono help. All of these topics mean the most to me!

I work with senior populations, children, animals, and veterans who get treated badly after they’ve served. At Studio Spin, our big, annual project is “Save The Tassels”, an official Breast Cancer.Org event where we raise thousands of dollars and present a showcase and dinner consisting of the hottest national circus arts, vaudeville, musical, burlesque and carnival sideshow acts. We present a check to BOC at the end. If anyone reading this is interested in performing in it in 2017, please contact me so that I can set it up with Rachel. In 2017, I will also start working with “Modified Dolls”, and if all goes well, “Sound Affects”, a program where national recording artists raise money for cancer. Lastly, I quickly want to shout out Prince Jackson’s school charity, “Heal L.A.”, he and his comrades are doing a super job with it, and if everyone reading this could donate to their latest project with the LA Boys & Girls Club, it would be amazing, it’s very important work that they’re doing, here is the link, folks, https://www.gofundme.com/2st6uqn8  – I have donated, and if any of my own supporters can contribute, it would be extremely helpful. They have a 10 thousand dollar goal, so any donation would certainly be appreciated for the holiday event.

J Rae: Would you mind sharing with the Skope audience what you’re currently working on not just musically and any new projects or collaborations in the works?

Chrissy: Yes, absolutely, I’m quite busy at the moment as a spokesmodel and brand face for Gisselle Cosmetics, and SunLabs tanner, traveling as a so called celebrity ambassador. It’s been such a superb opportunity to promote a safe tanning product that’s been around since 1983. I really do wear all of the Gisselle makeup products on stage and in shoots, hence practicing what I preach. I also have a promotional reign as a spokes gal for XS Energy drink, another product I’m proud to say isn’t loaded with dangerous or harmful chemicals like some of the other drinks on the market. I am elated to endorse what I feel are wholesome products. I have several new magazine covers coming up, and some neato shoots with top photographers who I adore like Shogun. I still work with the outstanding Alex Greggs, but also will be back working with super duper Underground Prods on another uplifting single in the same vein as “Me Without You”, in addition to a special song that’s  co written by Melissa Reyes, from the “PussyCat Dolls Present” TV show. I will also be continuing on with my commitments promoting TouchTunes digital restaurant and pub jukeboxes where I’m an artist and was a contender for TouchTunes/WBR’s “breakout band”. You will also still always see me working in some type of thespian capacity, so that hasn’t changed, and I’ll still be promoting the artists that I write and produce for, like Tamara from the Spanish channel. More charity events on the horizon, as well as many more radio shows, appearances, promo runs and tours, as well as something new in Atlantic City. There is more to come, but those are the only things I can definitively speak on at this exact moment in time. Please keep in touch with me via www.Facebook.com/ChrissyOfficialMusic and www.Instagram.com/PunkyChrissy i.e. @PunkyChrissy for regular updates.

Thank you for your time, Skope Magazine! You are certainly top notch and give a thorough review, which is rare! We made it, phew, the interview is over! Please pick up “Me Without You” by Chrissy at any of the online music shops, and play it right here on Skope Radio as well, it’s in rotation as we speak! Rock out!
