The band formed in 2007 when Angelina moved from her hometown of Kansas City to New York City. Soon after, she met Pablo and Adonis who were searching for a singer to front their new project.
“She sang on our demos and just blew us away. One audition was all we needed to hear,” says Adonis. The three immediately sparked a chemistry and began writing music together. In 2009 they released a full length album in entitled “Defying the Inevitable” produced by Brett Hestla. That same year, they filmed their first music video for the song “It Runs in the Blood”. The video was featured in the independent film “5th of a Degree,” which won awards at both the Miami and Las Vegas film festivals. In 2010 the band began recording music with producer Mike Watts for the first time and would later release their “A Nation Distracted” EP in 2011. Coinciding with the release was a new video for the song “Lights Out” which featured Angelina in a girl vs. girl “Fight Club” type scene. “I was trained to do stage combat in college, so when the opportunity came up to assemble a storyline, it was an obvious decision to include some fighting.” adds Angelina.
Since then, CHARETTA has opened for such national acts as NIN, Soundgarden, Flyleaf, Hinder, Lacuna Coil, Sick Puppies, & Red, and have clocked in over 200 live performances to date.
Currently, they are setting their sights on new heights with their latest single "No Monsters" that will release in April.
