Kristy Cox                                      KristyCox_AlbumCoverLarge

Kristy Cox is the new voice in Australian bluegrass. Adored for her youthful energy infused acoustic country, she has been awarded with radio success and accolades for her talent. Having just signed her first record deal in the USA with bluegrass label Pisgah Ridge (an imprint of Mountain Home), Kristy will be focusing her efforts on her new album ‘Living For The Moment’ released in Feb 2014. With a string of top 10 hits on Country Radio and Country Music Television in Australia, Kristy was recently named Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the year at the 2013 Australian Independent Country Music Awards with her last release ‘Miles and Timezones’ which also gained two nominations in the 2013 Country Music Awards of Australia; for Best New Talent and Alternative Country Album of the Year.

Kristy Cox has stepped it up a notch with her latest release ‘Living for the Moment’. (2014), the album was recorded at the Crossroad Studios in Arden, NC, with returning producer Jerry Salley. The album features a stellar line up of seasoned acoustic musicians who bring to life the ten songs, five written by Kristy; including the cracking album opener ‘You’re My Kind of Trainwreck’. Touching on modern country, ‘This’ is a positive catchy song that will draw attention from young music fans. ‘Something in the Way’ is a powerful contemporary song destined for mainstream success. Kristy stays true to her roots in the traditional style country ballad ‘Love Builds the Bridges’ and teams up with her producer and friend Jerry Salley for a duet on their ‘When It Comes to You’.

After months of barroom gigs, Kristy decided to pursue a singing career in the direction of acoustic music, which was heavily influenced by her travels overseas and being exposed to artists like: Lee Ann Womack, Patty Loveless, Rhonda Vincent and Alecia Nugent..

Credited for her performance and song writing capabilities, Kristy has been a Tamworth Star maker finalist and APRA Professional Development Awards finalist for Country Songwriter. Kristy was awarded Blues, Roots and Bluegrass song of the year for her song ‘If I Keep on Loving You’ at the 2012 TSA song writing awards. From a young age, Kristy has captured attention with her distinct singing style and positive outlook, seeing her go on to open shows for major acts and appearing on Television and major Festivals across Australia, Europe and the USA, including an official showcase at the International Bluegrass Music Convention in the USA later this year.
