Crystal McGrath has a high energy entertaining show whether it is acoustic or with her full band, playing music of all genres including Country, Pop, Rock, Top 40 and Classics!
Crystal McGrath is a musician, activist, podcast host, and inspirational influencer. Her latest catchy pop-country single, “About a Boy” takes the listener through the emotions one experiences when you start falling for that boy you just can’t get out of your head. But this is more than you’re average head-over-boots country love song- it conveys an underlying message about women empowerment. About a Boy demonstrates that you can be both an independent, strong woman and also be in touch with your emotions. With relatable lyrics delivered with powerful vocals over an instrumental blend of pop and traditional country sounds, About a Boy will surely get stuck in your head and have you singing along!
Crystal has performed all over the world. She has toured the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the U.K., and Australia. Supporting Canadian country legends such George Canyon and Aaron Pritchett, McGrath has proven that her stage presence is just as powerful as her songwriting. Her last release “Game On” produced by Spencer Cheyne, was released to radio in September 2020. The first week of the release “Game On” hit the Sirius XM CBC Country Top 40, was added to rotation on Australia Commercial Country radio networks, and the video was added to rotations on the Australian MTV/CMT network.
Crystal is an advocate for women’s empowerment and wants women to feel that they can go after any goal that they hope to achieve. To promote this message, Crystal founded “Live With Love” an online platform with the mission of helping women live their best life through movement and mindset.
Crystal has partnered with thoughtful.co by Indigo to bring her movement, message, and music coaching as a part of their digital experience offerings.
She has a passion for connecting with people and creating an outlet for their stories to be shared. This is evident through her podcast Crushing Chaos where she interviews women pushing through the resistance in their personal and professional lives. Crystal also can be seen regularly hosting her video podcast The Artists Behind the Music. In each episode, Crystal interviews her musical guest through inviting conversation around how they overcame obstacles to continue on their musical journey, followed by a performance by the guest.
In November 2019, Crystal was invited to participate in Canada’s Music Incubator’s Artist Entrepreneur West professional development program at the National Music Centre, where she spent five weeks developing her business.
Crystal lives by the words of poet John Greenleaf Whittier’s poem Don’t Quit “And you never can tell just how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit, It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.”
