Since her introduction to the world, Crystal has released 3 LPs, two Eps, several singles and is currently developing an autobiographical, theatrical rock concert titled, “Trauma Queen.”  Her deep love of music developed at an early age from her need to find peace in a chaotic world. In addition, she has used her vocal talents to benefit several causes close to her heart and has become an inspiration and advocate for people living with Type 1 Diabetes.
