“Crystal collaborated with North Carolina Symphony for on an arrangement of her song “Toy Hammer” for their 2010 New Year’s Eve“
Crystal, yet not in a musical family, grew up playing different instruments. She traveled and studied different cultures and their music that later on would be a major influence. It was in Greensboro, North Carolina in 2010 that she met what would become her first Silver Hand, Diego
who would contribute his haunting and ethereal guitar sounds. She began to write her own music again and in less than a year collaborated with the North Carolina Symphony. She has had two Northeast tours and has played alongside Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Larkin Grimm, Pearl and The Beard and many more.
Along with her travels, Crystal’s educational background in Anthropology, Ethnomusicology, and her experiences playing and singing various styles (Mariachi, Chinese, Balinese Gamelan, Ugandan, Samba) make a heavy appearance in her music. Crystal is also a mad multi-tasker. She jumps around on accordion, musical saw piano, adungu (a Ugandan harp), concertina, and bombo (Argentine drum). If that was not impressive enough, she possesses an astounding vocal range and power that descends on a dime to delicate subtlety.
