Kristina Cottone is an indie-soul artist based in Chicago. Known as the front woman and founding member for soul/rock band, Honey & the 45s, Kristina has performed throughout Chicago and the Midwest. She continues her role with Honey & the 45s, and brings you her solo project, Kristina Cottone Music.
Surrounded by a family of performers, Kristina’s interest in the arts and music began at young age. Her grandfather was a jazz singer and her aunt was an actress. Also pursuing the stage, Kristina holds a BFA in acting, and performed as company member with Chicago’s Organic Theater Company for 5 years before dedicating all of her time to music.
“Front woman Kristina Cottone’s voice rides all the varied rhythms with confidence, sass and just the right touch of ironic sexiness...With lyrics like that, you know that you’re in fairly literary hands. Smart girls, it’s clear, just plain do it better.”
-Robert Rodi, New City Music
