Biography

“It's amazing to see a band take a stage and see the reaction of random people stop and put down their drink or hang up their phone because their curiosity has their minds running wild.” - Promoter Bob Cantu

Crystal Cloud invites you to take a ride down her new Boulevard in Los Angeles, Ca. Crystal Cloud Blvd, with no periods allowed! (She states referring to the spelling, not the simple fact of having two females in the band.) CCB (for short) was created with the ingredients of Michael Sacca (Guitar), Corrine Gonzalez (Drums) Alex Coke (Bass) and of course Crystal Cloud herself (Vocals). Together they run more like your 1965 Chevrolet convertible than your new BMW five series.
While Michael was interning for band manager, Steve Ricardo, (The Charms, The Love Me Nots, ect.) , Crystal was fighting the idea of pursuing a solo career because frankly, she couldn’t find a band that would stick together more than six months. She’d been working with Kim Fowley but had nothing but a dog, studio apt, and a retired hit music producer. She couldn't imagine singing something that she didn't live or feel. Kim Fowley passed on her number to Steve Ricardo who met up for lunch one afternoon after she finished her waitressing shift at Barney's Beanery. Crystal's southern personality stood out so much that when news circled back to Michael, he decided to stop in to say hello one afternoon. That day made history. So long ago it seems but it was only earlier this year around Valentine's Day. At the same time Corrine had just exited the freeway from New York at Crystal Cloud Boulevard. She met Crystal once and came back the next day with her license to play. While vacationing in the boroughs, Al caught wind of the Blvd and jumped the red eye back to Los Angeles to lay down the bass.
In March they entered the studio run by Gavin Ross to record their first demo entitled “Cloud 10 (have you been?)”. Hours after the demo was finished The Blvd made their premier performance debut at Mr.T's on July 3, 2007.
A month and a live worldwide internet broadcast later, they returned to the stage August 6th, personally invited by Mr.T's and Promoter, Bob Cantu. That Monday night, they tripled the crowd from their first show packing the place at 9pm. With the use of flyers, Myspace bulletins, texts, calls and even smoke signals, CCB was graced with some returning faces, some new faces, some good friends that came to support the band.
Whether you were there to see CCB or not, their appearance and performance has the strength to stall you and bring you to their Cloud 10. With diligence, Crystal organizes her stage show. From matching colored outfits all the way down to the color of her mic stand. They keep you waiting and wanting more.
Their first demo is currently getting re-mixed and mastered by David Troia, an engineer/ producer for Balance Studios. David is a seasoned engineer who recently co-produced seven tracks on the new Down record. Troia adds that special last touch on CCB’s first demo.
CCB is going to start pre-pro for their first full length EP w/ Troia set to record in the beginning of 08 in New Orleans, LA. CCB is on the blvd and you’ll want to stop in for a journey filled with spontaneity, color, exploration in sound of the past, present and future; constantly challenging the noise coming out of your radio and TV.

Lyrics

Magnolia Blossom

Written By: Crystal Cloud Blvd


Magnolia Blossom

I’m the girl that you keep a secret
I’m the girl that you can not tell
The world that you’re working with

(pre)
I’m so dangerous -
through other peoples words
I’m a threat to her
..magnolia blossom.

A beautiful smell
That You know so well
Magnolia blossom

I sit at my toilet
Smoking and choking
Not because I’m anorexic
But because I’m sick

(pre)
I’m so dangerous -
through other peoples words
I’m a threat to her
..magnolia blossom.

I spray me
I dare you-
I spray me
I dare you!

*smell*the magnolia blossom
*smell*the magnolia blossom
MAGNOLIA
BLOSSOM
Bridge/ chorus out
You pushed me far away
You pushed me far way
You pushed me far away
Far away
Far away

Don't end this romance

Don’t End This Romance (tk 2)

I’m tied to a secret
Thin and glam
Thin and glam
As my body I neglect
Waking up in pain
Being pretting isn’t lame
Yes! It’s lame…you’re so lame.

(chorus)
I hide behind my photograph
Ohhh
To display the life you think
I have

Chained down
my secrets
my biggest regret

DON’T END THIS ROMANCE

I have seen more sick days
than I’ve seen well
It’s time to break this spell

I hide behind my photograph
Ohhh
Ohhh
Ohh
Ohhh
To display the life you thiiiiiiiiiiiiink
I haaaaaaaaaave (repeat)

DON’T END THIS ROMANCE ~uh oh
DON’T END THIS ROMANCE ~please go

(now we sing)
Do wap u wap a wap a dop a du wap a dud u du wap
Do wap u wap a wap a dop a du wap a dud u du wap

Driving home it’s the
thought of you,
with my friends
Can’t you get a clue…

For now--- I’ll sing----
Don’t---- end--- this
Ro-----man---ce.
