Official Biography (courtesy of Demmette Guidry)
From the folks that brought you Destiny’s Child, Lauryn Hill, Maxwell and Alicia Keys comes Crystal Cruz. A self-described “mixed chick” Crystal grew up dealing with the issues that impact mixed race families. Being born into an interracial marriage in America with the blood of Spanish, German, Irish, African American, Native American and Jewish ancestry running through her veins allowed Crystal to view life from many different interesting perspectives which is the basis of her writing and creative expression. With her first public performances as early as age 4, Crystal mastered her training and plotted a course that bears witness to her natural calling to the performing arts. Her industry credits include, singing, dancing, writing and acting. This multi-cultural, quadruple-threat performer is a role model for young women and represents every girl and every personality.
Glimmering in bright reds, whites, blacks and luscious yellows, manifesting her sexuality through her pinned up hair and classic Pin-Up Girl look, Crystal Cruz is seductive yet sophisticated, the type who flaunts her disdain, your Bad-Ass Chick. Reminding us of the carefree times between the 1920's through 1950's, Crystal is the consummate tease, the sort of girl that lives in every man's fantasy. In search of a praise-worthy man, Cruz is a social butterfly unafraid to express herself, flirtatious, sassy yet classy, glamorous yet intelligent and strong-willed.
Ms. Cruz is fearless on stage, awakening the music she sings through passionate movement and dance, further enhanced by her warm outgoing verbal prowess. Her rhythmically charged production captures the vintage essence of traditional Rhythm and Blues and Doo-wop of the 50’s and 60s, reminiscent of the Motown Sound (The Sound of Young America) while simultaneously blazing a trail for her new brand of R&B- "Vintage Music". When summing up what her music is about, Crystal offers a simple answer: “Vintage Music is about a sound that represents the best of the old & new". And, with the inborn spirit of a true entertainer enhanced by her beauty beyond skin deep, Ms. Cruz is ready to captivate her audience both young and mature.
