"Anjelia sings country the way Janis sang Rock"
- Donna Labate, Manager, Publisher
"With her new single “Kiss My Ass,” Los Angeles based country rocker Anjelia Pelay gives us a dose of grit with a healthy side of taking chances to present something edgy and very attention grabbing.
The edge in the guitars are reminiscent of the classic Southern rock sound and while a song like this is familiar among today’s strong females, the grit in the delivery makes this one stand out on its own. Combine that with a nice breakdown near the end of the song and this is not only a solid tune to capture radio’s attention, but it also allows the room for it to become a live favorite that any rowdy crowd can easily sing or clap along with."

"THIS LOVELY LADY OPENED FOR JOHNNY CASH'S SON: JOHN CARTER CASH. I WAS BLESSED TO BE A PART OF HISTORY THAT NIGHT.
ANJELIA PELAY IS THE MOST AMAZING - SOULFUL COUNTRY SINGER/ARTIST ON THIS PLANET! PICTURE JANIS JOPLIN SINGING COUNTRY."
-DENNY KEPLER, FILM TECH, MUSIC ENTHUSIAST
"Los Angeles based Country singer-songwriter Anjelia Pelay is releasing her debut country single Kiss My Ass. This is a very catchy Country tune with Southern Rock and rock influences, and is about a woman walking away from a relationship with a self-centered man.
I can easily imagine this song being played on the Nashville TV series (which I love). It would be a great track for Hayden Panettiere's character Juliette Barnes! That melody is infectious! Really loving the song!! This sick tune is taken from her new EP The Heart Decides. "

"PELAY'S SOUND IS REMINISCENT OF
A ONE WOMAN VERSION OF THE DIXIE CHICKS"
-LIBBY DANGER, ISH FAUXTOGRAPHY
"ANJELIA’S SOUTHERN ROCK STYLE OF MUSIC HAS BEEN COMPARED TO THE DIXIE CHICKS AND PARALLELS THAT OF TODAY’S TOP FEMALE COUNTRY SINGER, MIRANDA LAMBERT.
“Kiss My Ass” is a song that really hits home for some women who are battling an unhealthy relationship and who choose to walk away from a man who no longer makes them feel valued. “I want anyone who has been through this awful situation to be able to listen to this song and feel empowered; like they can conquer the world when they turn up the volume, roll down the car window and let their hair blow in the wind.” Sung with a little sass and rock edge, the chorus “you’re gonna miss every part of me/kiss my ass good- bye” expresses the strength of the woman.
This song has been a favorite on my playlist all week and every time, I would find myself singing along with the chorus."
-SAMANTHA JOHNSON, COUNTRY MUSIC MINUTE
"On "Kiss My Ass," Pelay blends country, pop and southern rock into a single with serious grit and attitude. Pelay's vocals on the verses convey a woman wronged and angry "fool me once, fool me twice," but when she sings the chorus "you're gonna miss every part of me/kiss my ass good- bye" her vocals convey a different woman-one content with her decision to move on because she values herself and deserves better.
Pelay is an actress, singer/songwriter, dancer, multi-instrumentalist (she plays piano, auto-harp and banjo on the album)....and a definite one to watch."
