Her canvass contains the deep blues of heartbreak with splashes of vibrant reds when her mood shifts into something animalistic. Fuelling her compositions to a larger project over the years she has found passionate & diverse musicians, of whom are the known as ‘The Connection’. Together Crystalena & The Connection live for mixing genres and attitudes to give audiences a dark soulful Canadiana Twist. From Crystalena’s firey melancholic sass dripping lyrics that address complex topics in social issues & the reign of self-empowerment, to The Connection’s deep soulful roots and history in psychedelic rock & jazz improvisation. This indomitable band of soul jazz rockers give audiences a connection to music that they feel and hear more than just sound. Crystalena & The Connection are dedicated to living and breathing music with conviction and are not a show to miss! +++ Crystalena +++ Crystalena landed with a running fire in the Ottawa music industry, eager to perform & share her music whilst studying for 4 years in performance and musical theory at Carleton University’s singer -songwriter music program. She has been said to rumour “A remarkable talent that you’ll certainly hear more from in the future” [Rob Blanchette - Soundcheck Entertainment]. She gained the attention of thousands internationally after releasing a live video of an original; “Impulse” with Ottawa local live music productions, Shot In the Dark in December 2016, which has quickly become a favourite for local audiences. “[I] loved the slow burning sensuality in Impulse that flowed from soft verses to strong choruses and showcased Crystalena’s lower/higher register vocal versatility. [She] dug her teeth into words that were filled with passionate throes” [Terry Steeves - Apt613]. Crystalena works on extensively blending musical styles, with a voice that is soaked in honey and has the raw emotional grit, it will caress you sweetly but that touch won’t hold back the claws when the music needs to slice.” [Andre Gagne - Ottawa Life Magazine]. Named one of Ottawa’s rising stars, “Crystalena is a talented multi-instrumentalist and veteran of Bluesfest and countless other festivals.” [Bytown Sound]
