    I wrote a parody of the song Try (by Colbie Caliet) and Kristal sang it to perfection. She was the only vocalist I trusted to get this right and true to form she nailed it, AGAIN! She can transform her voice into anything you need. This was our fourth project together. Can't wait to work on another project with her.

    I had a track I thought was good and got another great singer to sing but it came out not great. I was thinking perhaps that song wasn't as good as I thought. I gave the song to Kristal just in case. It is now the best song on the album. I went from dropping the song to putting it first. That's how amazing Kristal is..she can save you!

    AMAZING, BREATH TAKING VOCALS!!! If you want your piece of music done RIGHT, she's exactly who you want. She even went back in and added some more adlibs for me, greatness on top of what was already great. Respectful, nice, quick turn around, and highly professional. This was my first time working with Kristal but definitely won't be my last!!!

    Kristal is a pro on so many levels. Gorgeous voice. Smart vocal arranger. And she provides an amazing mix! Above all that I'm most impressed that she can add flourishes, enhancements and little changes throughout that all improve the record but keep the original feel. She finds room to do her thing, but it still sounds like your song - just better!

    Kristal took a playback that I've composed at a sketch level, launched it with an industry level vocal line, insanely well performed and mixed to a whole new level. My jaw dropped when I heard it the first 10 times. Inspiring artist with super professional ability to execute.

    I have searched high and low for songwriters that I could collaborate with and get major label quality but had no luck until I met Kristal. Extremely professional but personable, reasonably priced, and important above of all quality work that will jumpstart your inspiration and can be used upon delivery. Choose Kristal you won't go wrong!

    Given Kristal's reputation, I knew my record would be in good hands. Still, she completely over-delivered! It was clear that Kristal took the time to really put herself inside the song. She stayed true to my original vision but was able to bring out elements I hadn't heard or considered. Super-responsive. Kind. Can't wait to work together again!
