Born in Brussels, Crystal grew up in a home filled with Country music, Soul, Doo Wop, Rock'n'Roll and of course Rockabilly. At the age of 16 she first set foot on stage, singing with Belgian Rockabilly band Runnin' Wild. This band, consisting of Patrick Ouchêne (vox/guitars), Johnny Trash (drums/vox) and Lenn Dauphin (double bass) are already touring the world for over 20 years with their particular Roots/Rockabilly sound. In that time they recorded 7 albums. But now they decide to use their experience to support the very promising new talent, which is Crystal. And so 2012 sees the birth of Crystal & Runnin' Wild, a band that starts to tour Europe immediately (Belgium of course, but also Germany, Holland, Spain, France and even Russia). One of the highlights was their performance in front of an audience of more than 5000 people at the Brussels Summer Festival, where they meet Steve McKay of Iggy & The Stooges fame. McKay is impressed by Crystal's version of their Punk classic "Search And Destroy", and joins the band in the studio to record an alternative version of the song, they had previously recorded on their first demo. Even only 21, Crystal has a very mature and powerful voice, which is clearly demonstrated on the first EP, which was released in April 2013. On this 6-song-CD she surfs between the different sides of her musical personality, combining the high power energy of Iggy & The Stooges with the intense sensuality of Etta James.
