CRYSTAL CELEBRITY - MY MUSIC!!!! (#1 LOVE)
Before anything else I am a singer & songwriter. This has been my biggest love and passion from a very young age! I started out in primary school, was in every music group I knew of both inside and outside of school including school choirs, youth music clubs, community projects, church projects, local community events and the local Music Academy on weekend... if I could perform, I was there! This carried on for years as I developed and changed and created a portfolio of live performances longer than these catwal legs lol!
AND NOW - WHAT'S CHANGED IN MUSIC FOR ME?
I KNOW MYSELF!
All of my experience allowed me to discover the artist within me, yes I could SING, but HOW did I want to do it, who did I want to do it for and where did I see myself going with it? I began conciously building a HUGE record of performances all over the U.K and far from home!! I wanted people to hear me, I wanted to feel the fear and do it anyway! I wanted to perform and see reactions and build a fan base...and I did many shows and collaborations including supporting and gracing the stage alongside the likes of De La Soul, Terri Walker, S.A.S (Euro Gang), Nate James, & Omar (to name a few)
My past performances and shows include:
The De La Soul U.K Tour (Support Act, Jazz Cafe)
The City Showcase (Miss Sixty, Hugo Boss)
The Peace and Solidarity Festival (France)
The VIBRATIONS Festival (Burges Park)
The Thurrock Festival
La Cosa Nostra (Amsterdam)
The Newham Road Show (Local Borough)
To name but a few.... ;o)
CRYSTAL - THE BUSINESS WOMAN:
I worked very hard in school and college and received really great grades, I was happy with my achievements but ready to do something else!!! It was shocking to some (especially family) that I didn't go straight on to University, but I felt that I wanted to go straight out into the world and create my future my way! I knew what I wanted to do and I knew that I could do it! I had sooooo many ideas in my head and was BUSTING to get out there and make my mark! So that's just what I did!

I was approached by Benji Whytepatch of 'Erra Records' to be part of an international collaboration with 'Nu Starr' (Sweden) and New York Rapper 'Slic One' for the inspirational track 'Keep Holding On' which was up for the Channel U Best Of British Awards and I got involved as it was a great song with a positive message. After having worked with Erra Records on the Nu Starr track I began to work with them on other levels as an A&R representative, sessional work artist and other such projects - over the years a good working relationship developed and the next step seemed like a natural transition....I am now signed to Erra Records!
We recorded the track 'Wanna See You Dance' as a one-off release through Erra records. We shot the video for 'Wanna See You Dance' with NME Award Winning Video Director 'Luke Biggins'. See my debut video here!
