This Chicagoan, by way of St. Louis artist wears her life experiences, musicianship, and love for people on her chest and is always ready to set the nearest stage on fire.
Her love for music runs deep into her roots and she uses those seeds to share real, purposeful, and meaningful music that will uplift your spirits and also move the crowd. “I perform to connect with my audience. By sharing music, I hope to create ‘Escapism’ for them. Take them away from their stresses, problems, and worries, if even only for a moment,” says Metcalfe.
Her musical style described as “the love child of Aretha Franklin and Chaka Kahn, infused with Rock n' Soul and Musical Theatre” though abstract, proves to be a winning combination for this artist. She has been recognized by The Chicago Tribune, as well as highlighted by Jet magazine in a new artist spotlight for her student loan anthem 'Sallie'.
Krystal's debut EP "In Real Life" also earned her performances on the historic JBTV, as well as Windy City Live. With many more magical happenings in the near future, Krystal Metcalfe is a rising star ready to do her part to change the world, one stage at a time.
