Biography[edit]

Early years[edit]

Crystal Lewis, born in Corona, California, grew up singing in her father's church.[1] In 1984, at the age of 15, Lewis auditioned for a children's musical called Hi Tops, written and produced by Ernie and Debbie Rettino, creators of Psalty, the Singing Song Book. Lewis passed the audition and was able to go into the studio and participate in the soundtrack recording with the rest of the cast members.[citation needed] While working with the musical, Lewis met a member of the rockabilly band, The Lifters. After becoming friends with the members of that band, Lewis was asked to join. Soon after, the band changed its name to Wild Blue Yonder.[citation needed] In 1992 Crystal worked at the sketch comedy television series Roundhouse, that aired on Nickelodeon.[citation needed]

Wild Blue Yonder was together for two years and recorded a single full length album Wild Blue Yonder, produced by Daniel Amos frontman Terry Scott Taylor, for Frontline Records in 1986. She would also sing on D.A.'s album Fearful Symmetry in 1986, and Taylor's solo album A Briefing for the Ascent in 1987. After Wild Blue Yonder disbanded, Frontline offered Lewis a solo recording contract at the age of 17. Beyond the Charade, her first solo project, was released in 1987.

Personal life[edit]

Lewis lives in northwestern Montana with husband with whom she has two children.[citation needed] Her daughter is also a singer/songwriter and released her self-titled debut album on February 12, 2012, followed by her remixes EP on October 22, 2013.[citation needed] Her son is also pursuing a career in music having wrapped production on his mother's new release Plain and Simple.[citation needed]
