We've got the premiere of Crystal McGrath's latest single! "Back to Never" can be found here. “Back to Never” was written and recorded by all local Calgary musicians and friends of McGrath’s. She wrote the song with Darren Gilbert and Aaron Pollock. Crystal loves to perform because “music is a universal language and a connection. Everybody in the world connects through music”.
The Calgary, Canada born and raised artist had a unique path to music. She was a gymnast as a kid but broke both feet and quit at 12 years old. Crystal put her gymnast training mentality into her music. She joined the Youth Singers of Calgary and performed at Disney World and on cruises. Crystal went to college for marketing but that is also where her music career ultimately started, “I went to school for marketing and sat in class, but I just wrote songs. I left that class early and grabbed local newspaper on way out and saw an ad to make a demo tape”.
Crystal has always loved country music. Her sound is a blend of Pop and country and looks up to female country powerhouses Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, and Kelly Clarkson. McGrath dreams that one day she will get to step into the circle at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Crystal wants aspiring artists to know that they should “stay focused on what makes you feel good”. Crystal is also the host of two podcasts, “Crushing Chaos” and “The Artists Behind the Music”. She also runs her own marketing company and is a music teacher!
