Guitarist Jéssica di Falchi is the new official guitarist for Brazilian metal band Crypta. In May 2022, she joined the band as a “sidewoman,” to carry out the “Echoes Over Latin America Tour” and “Echoes Over Europe Summer Tour,” replacing Sonia Anubis.
“I am extremely grateful and happy to be a part of Crypta!” di Falchi said. “I would like to thank the girls and their entire team for the opportunity and trust in my work–and to the fans of the band, for the support and affection they gave me since the beginning of this journey. I’m really looking forward to what’s to come!”
Bassist/vocalist Fernanda Lira said: “In addition to an exceptional guitarist, Jéssica is a very nice person, easy to get along with, super proactive and creative. Undoubtedly, she will contribute to several aspects of the band. It’s a great honor to have her in our family from now on!”.
Born in Monte Alto/SP, di Falchi studied guitar at the Souza Lima Conservatory in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, and has been working professionally as a guitarist since 2015, having as her main previous projects the Hardwired Metallica Tributo and Iron Ladies, an Iron Maiden tribute band with which she performed numerous shows in Brazil. She also joined the backing band of the “1° Aquiles Priester Drum Fest,” playing alongside great names like Aquiles himself, Eloy Casagrande, Edu Falaschi, Luis Mariutti and Paulo Zinner.
Recently, di Falchi became part of the official team of artists of ESP guitars.
Now, with the consolidated lineup, Crypta will focus on finishing writing its new album (which will be recorded and released in 2023) and on the upcoming shows already scheduled.
