Crystal and the Wolves: SF Music
Crystal and The Wolves may be a local band but their sound is drawn from experiences of travels all around the world. Melding together a range of different influences, Crystal harmonizes her strong vocals with the instruments of each song to create a form of music which is practically her own genre. Hints of famous rocker girls can be heard here and there but Crystal is one of those women whose voice is identifiable as unique unto its own.
Her CD, Shapinska Rock, was born out of a series of experiences had in Europe which compelled her to explore the magic of the land around her. From start to finish, the CD weaves together a story of her journeys told through both the factual and the fantasy of her interactions with the world around her. Crystal is about to set off to explore the world again, so the last chance to see her in San Francisco (for awhile at least) is coming up quick.
Crystal and The Wolves will be playing at Kimo’s on Polk Street on February 2nd. Playing with CATW will be Firebug, up from Los Angeles to share their equally strong vocals and diverse instrumental talents with the people of San Francisco. The groups can be loosely described as “singer-songwriter, indie rock, alternative, folk rock” bands with female vocals, which isn’t a very conclusive description but gives you the hint of just how broad their individual talents can be.
