A northwest Ohio native currently calling Nashville home, Crystal Bowersox has built her life around music, a love that developed at an early age. Dead set on a career in music, she moved to Chicago as a teenager, where she performed on subway platforms and worked odd jobs. Here she broadened her musical horizons and ultimately auditioned for the ninth season of American Idol. Her time on the show proved to be well spent, as she immediately stepped into the recording studio. She has since released 3 LP’s, 2 EPs, and several singles. She has also used her talents to benefit causes close to her heart and advocating for people with Type 1 Diabetes. Crystal’s 2017 release, Alive, was recorded live in Santa Fe, NM in front of a live audience.
