Music is the most powerful of all the arts. It instantly stirs up emotions, conjures visions, and offers glimpse of other,
higher dimensions. It arouses men to battle; kindles amorous passions in lovers; soothes a baby to sleep; comforts us when
we grieve. It engages our hearts and our minds, and can
bring out the best that we are. One can safely presume
that not a single emotion, nor any human or natural event,
has been left undocumented by music.
Krystal’s early songwriting days started as a rhythm/lead guitar player in a rock/metal band, Burning Desire, with Jeff, who is now her husband. They released an album, Break Free, which rapidly climbed up on the Michigan State University WLFT Top Ten Album Charts (CM Journal, New York). That was the 1st time in the MSU WLFT Radio that a local band on an independent label hit the Top 10 Charts alongside all nationally known artists such as Whitesnake and Def Leppard.
Krystal continued to expand musically as a musician and songwriter as she crossed over into different styles and genres. She played bass guitar in many theatrical productions, ensembles, orchestra, and praise & worship bands. She also performed bass guitar for the Macomb Community College Jazz Band and trained for over 10 years in classical guitar.

Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other because rhythm and harmony find their way into the
inner places of the soul.
I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy;
but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music
and all the arts are the keys of learning.
The beauty of the guitar resides in its soft and persuasive voice, and its poetry cannot be equaled by any other instrument.
