Krissy Feniak hopes you have a Bad Day in her mischievous new single — premiering exclusively on Tinnitlst.
Fuelled by a slow-burning, funky groove and a slinky, chiming guitar line, the Edmonton country singer’s latest release delivers a series of tongue-in-cheek well wishes to a nameless someone who’s clearly done her wrong. “I hope you don’t fall and break your face … (or) get sick from what you ate,” she cracks. “I don’t wish you pain, but I hope you have a bad day.”
The sassy, free-spirited singer hasn’t had many of those lately. Thanks to her vintage, soulful sound, unforgettable look and clever songcraft, she nabbed the Rising Star Award at the Country Music Alberta Awards this year. It’s far from her first accolade. In 2018, Feniak won the North American Country Music Associations International Artist, Entertainer and Songwriter of the Year in Pigeon Forge, TN while traveling to Nashville with legends Dick Damron and Joyce Smith.
The Alberta Country Music Association honoured her with the ACMA Horizon Award and nomined her for Female Artist of the year in 2018 and 2019. She has performed at Big Valley Jamboree, the Alberta Country Music Awards Show, ACMA Fan Fest, and Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe. She has shared the stage as a supporting act for performers such as Doc Walker, Gord Bamford, Aaron Goodvin and many others.
Krissy’s recent single Wrong Side of Midnight is currently airing on Canadian country radio. Working closely with Juno-winning producer Matty McKay (Brett Kissel), vocal coach Tamara Beatty (The Voice, The Masked Singer) and manager Jordyn Elliott has helped Krissy to craft a sound and style all her own. Collaborating with hit writers like Ralph Murphy and Tebey has helped mold Krissy into a passionate and inspired songwriter. She attended the Rise Program with the Nashville Songwriters Association in April 2020.
