"Anjelia sings country the way Janis sang Rock"
- Donna Labate, Artist Manager
"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."

[on the first single "Kiss My Ass"
from the EP "The Heart Decides".]
"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.
"Kiss My Ass" will be released February 1st, an important date for Anjelia as it is the date of her father's (who was her muse) passing from cancer.
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."

"PELAY'S SOUND IS REMINISCENT OF
A ONE WOMAN VERSION OF THE DIXIE CHICKS"
-LIBBY DANGER, ISH FAUXTOGRAPHY
"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). Really loving the song!! This sick tune is taken from her new EP The Heart Decides. "
