Kristy Cox: About
Kristy Cox’s youthful acoustic country makes her a compelling, new voice in Australian and American bluegrass.
Her latest release, Living For the Moment (2014), was recorded at the Crossroads 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 “When It Comes to You.”
Kristy’s accolades include a string of top 10 hits on Country Radio and Country Music Television in Australia. She was named Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the year at the 2013 Australian Independent Country Music Awards. She also received two nominations in the 2013 Country Music Awards of Australia (Best New Talent and Alternative Country Album of the Year). She 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.
