Chriss Coniglio began her journey in music during her early childhood wherein she was exposed to various genres of music. “My family has always been a great influence on my music career; throughout the 90’s they encouraged me to take percussion lessons after bringing me to my first concert.” She has since become a multi-instrumentalist, adding bass, guitar, and piano to her repertoire, and taking to the road, performing in her home state of NJ, and in Boston, MA. In 2004 her focus shifted from performance to the business side of the industry, leading Chriss to earn her Bachelors Degree from Berklee College of Music in Music Business Management in 2008. She has worked from the bottom up, starting out at Fenway Park in concessions for major acts such as The Police, Dave Matthews Band, and Paul McCartney to interning at major label groups including Decca Label Group, Fueled By Ramen, and Atlantic Records. During these placements Chriss has specialized in online marketing for acts such as Boys II Men, David Garrett and Sting.
For Fueled By Ramen, Chriss assisted the New Media department, actively creating promotional material for new releases and tours, updating artist social media accounts, and assisted with campaigns for Travie McCoy, VersaEmerge, and Paramore. Her experience with various fan bases lead to liaising with management and labels to discuss feedback, and brainstorm ideas for community outreach. She then moved on to work at OK! Good Records, an indie label in Teaneck, NJ, continuing her success and building upon her experience with social media marketing, eCommerce, and retail marketing. Chriss now heads the Special Events department at STARS Productions, working directly with clients to provide the ultimate entertainment experience for all of your weddings, corporate, and private party needs. She is constantly being complimented by clients and receiving the feedback; "This is the best party I've ever had!"
