www.anjeliapelay.com
As an actress onstage and on television, Toms River, New Jersey-born performer Anjelia Pelay has stolen the heart of wrestler Randy Orton, charmed Gene Simmons, and channeled both Britney Spears and the Beatles with equal aplomb. But for Anjelia (say it anj-uh-LEE-uh!), all that acting was just a warm-up for her true passion: music. As a true performer at heart, she brings an exciting, theatrical flair to the often-staid world of singer-songwriter fare. Anjelia’s soulful, hook-laden contemporary country-pop has won industry kudos from the likes of producer Rodney Jerkins and former Styx bassist/vocalist Glen Burtnik, with whom she regularly performed in his celebrated Beatlemania shows. Besides guest starring frequently in Burtnik’s productions, she’s sung backup for Patty Smyth, and opened for John Carter-Cash, Rachel Platten, Jeffrey Gaines, and Nicole Atkins. The Aquarian dubbed her “worth watching” after one of her early performances in Manhattan, and the Trentonian recently called her a “multi-talented” “statuesque beauty” who is “the total package.”
