"Singer/Songwriter Crystal Cruz… ‘Santa Baby’"

There are timeless artists and then there are timely artists. Very rarely has there been an opportunity for the two qualities to juxtapose – but along came singer/songwriter Crystal Cruz. Blending old soul with new sound, her vintage music captures the spirit of classics that made our mamas and daddies snap their fingers and marries it with her instantly captivating style. From the folks that brought you Destiny’s Child, Lauryn Hill, Maxwell, and Alicia Keys, Crystal is bringing originality back to the future. - Classic Soul Radio


"Crystal Cruz"

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. - Soul Tracks

Bio

There are timeless artists and then there are timely artists. Very rarely has there been an opportunity for the two qualities to juxtapose- then along comes Crystal Cruz. Blending old soul with new sound, her Vintage Music captures the spirit of the classics that made our mamas and daddies snap their fingers marrying it with her instantly captivating style. Fusing the gospel music she grew up on with the sensuality of R&B, the innovation of jazz, and the precision of Pop, Crystal is bringing originality back to the future.

Fearlessly sexy and boldly creative Crystal views the world through a different lens. A self-described “hybrid” Crystal grew up dealing with the issues that impact most mixed race families in America.  Being born into an interracial marriage 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. At home on stage, Crystal brings to life the music that she creates through passionate movement further enhanced by her warm outgoing verbal prowess. Whether it’s her “Pin Up” style of fashion, inspired by the classic pin up artwork of the 1940’s, or her ability to deliver her brand of the traditional torch song with a style-based jolt from the modern era, Crystal differentiates herself from her peers.

Crystal’s public persona may have an aspirational appeal, but the private life of this starlet is little known. That is a strategic decision. Unlike stars whose love lives, vacations and eating habits are picked over and chronicled by gossip rags or offered up for consumption through Twitter feeds or blogs, Ms. Cruz lets the work speak for itself.  She lives out her music and image authentically, she carries a conviction in her lyrics and what you see is what you get. Her music is delivered with a purpose and heart for a cause far bigger than herself. She is the real deal artistically, commercially and personally. 

Crystal defines the spiritual and ethical grounds of her music, not a genre. Vintage Music is the authentic expression of the artist, Crystal Cruz. By featuring elements that celebrate her multicultural heritage she sings songs of pertinence and meaning to her experience. Crystal sings sophisticated harmonies and writes lyrics about personal feelings  and the intricacies of love.  A multicultural perspective pops in her writing, helping to bridge the racial divide in her music. Her music is created encourage and inspire her listeners.
