“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” This powerful message delivered by the influential Carl Gustav Jung, captures the essence of singer-songwriter Chrissi Poland’s new single “Wanna Be You.” Written as an encouraging anthem to young people everywhere, this upbeat track urges listeners to live as authentically as possible. Understanding the importance of living in and seeking your truth, Poland was inspired by a close family member to craft this empowering single. Produced by Stu Mindeman and mastered by Anthony Gravino, this is the first release from her upcoming EP Destination Home. Born in a small town in Massachusetts into a musical family, multi-instrumentalist Chrissi Poland has been surrounded by music her entire life. After finding her musical voice at the age of 12, the songwriter understood the power of her words and it was then she decided to take her craft seriously. Since moving to New York City at the age of 21, the Berklee College of Music alumna has been a staple in the music industry. Poland has since become a mother, however this role has not hindered this active performer’s career in the slightest. The performer has lent her voice and art of songwriting to popular series on HBO, Netflix and Bravo as well as in numerous global and national commercials. She has toured nationally and internationally with Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame legend Sam Moore’s band (Sam & Dave) and recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Nile Rodgers. Her new EP, Destination Home comes out October 22, 2021.
