While best known as a beloved American Idol finalist, Crystal Bowersox has since proven to be more than simply a gifted singer with soul and dreadlocks. She’s blossomed into a widely respected and strikingly independent artist and songwriter.
Since her season of wowing audiences around the world on American Idol, Bowersox has released two new records, the most recent being the country/soul accented All That for This in 2013, which opened to widespread critical acclaim and boasted a guest duet with Jakob Dylan. This past fall, she branched out into Broadway, playing the lead role in Always, Patsy Cline. Combining her powerful and dynamic vocals with her remarkably mature songwriting, Bowersox is described as “Bluesy and soulful, with a voice incapable of artifice...” (The Washington Post).
...She has a keen, finely honed pop instinct all her own.” - The New York Times
“Bowersox expertly works the territory between folk and country…her best moments are…subtle, with a touch of twang and fragility.” – The Chicago Tribune
