If there was a better voice, a brighter talent or shinier star ever to emerge from American Idol without winning, Blue Strawberry has not heard it. (She settled for second.)
For years, her fans brought "You Shoulda Won" posters to her concerts. You are encouraged to bring one to Crystal's show at Blue Strawberry.
Crystal Bowersox has built her life around music. Her love for music developed at an
early age from a need to find peace in a chaotic world. Through art and
creation, Crystal was able to direct her energy and emotion, finding a way to
mend a mind in turmoil. For her, music
was always the most effective form of catharsis, and she would play for anyone,
anywhere. In her own words, “my guitar was an appendage. I couldn’t live
without it.” Dead set on a career in music, Crystal
moved to Chicago as a teenager, where she spent her days performing underground
on subway platforms in between working odd jobs. While in the big city, she
broadened her musical horizons and shared her talents with a variety of venues,
ultimately auditioning for the ninth season of American Idol. Crystal’s time on the show proved to be well spent,
as she immediately left the the soundstage for the recording studio. Since her
introduction to the world through television, Crystal has released two LP’s,
two EPs, and several singles. However, it is what’s in front of her,
not what’s behind her, that will define Crystal’s personal and professional
evolution. The accomplished singer-songwriter is set to release a new project –
a live album, recorded at the Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico,
cleverly titled Alive. Not only is
the title a play on words, representing the rawness of the tracks, but it
pertains to the place where Crystal currently is in her life. That place is one of joy, fulfillment, and
stability for Crystal and her eight year old son, Tony.
