About Crystal Bright: "This is what it would sound like if Kate Bush were to genetically fuse with Danny Elfman and Dresden Dolls in some strange biological experiment."

Crystal's songs heavily incorporate her educational background in Anthropology and Ethnomusicology and her experiences playing in groups that have varied from Mariachi, Chinese, Balinese Gamelan, Samba, to Ugandan ensembles. She learned to play a wide range of instruments, from the accordion, to the musical saw (which she taught herself by watching YouTube videos), to an adungu (a Ugandan harp), to the concertina, all of which she added to her piano background in order to create the 2010 self-titled debut album.

The lyrics and melodies on the albums portray the world as a dark and strange (and often funny) place deeply connected to fables and imagination. Stories, such as "Little Match Girl" and "Skeleton Woman" convey lessons from folklore that address phases in women's lives where they need to be conscious of staying true to their intuition. For Crystal, songwriting can be begin in many different ways, including refrigerator magnets or going to the movie theater at midnight by herself. It can be collaborative, but is mostly accomplished during the darkest hours of the night by herself surrounded by all of her instruments and computer.
