Krisanthi Pappas has the vocal gentleness of Norah Jones and the husky-voiced passion of Bonnie Raitt. Her theatrical-pop songwriting style has been compared to Randy Newman, described as a country-flavored blend of jazz, cabaret and pop.
Currently playing in Boston and New York City with a fan base of about 2,000, she has performed throughout the U.S. and Caribbean and has shared the stage with Branford Marsalis, Chuck Mangione, The B-52s, The Yellowjackets and many others. Krisanthi also plays piano and drums on some of her songs as well as writing her band’s musical arrangements.
