Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature
cannot do without. ~Confucius

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.
