Crystal X Short Info

CRYSTAL X is a UK based Commercial & Ambient Rock band founded in 2010 in the depths of an old dingy garage.

From the age of 14 it became evident that the core to CRYSTAL X was the incomparable bond between the songwriting duo - lead singer Xiomara Crystal and rhythm guitarist Marcelo Cervone, co-writing 3 out of the 5 songs from the debut EP and harnessing different rock elements; Xio’s naturally radiating melodies & lyrics and Marcelo having a flair for musical arrangements & ascending guitar riffs.

Having met during school in Portugal and then moving to London to pursue their musical aspirations, they had their first official band gig at the 2012 Hard Rock Cafe Battle of the Bands, establishing themselves as a serious upcoming rock act.

The band’s distinctive pulse derives from drummer Hector Cottam aka ‘the mad Scotsman’. Hector's teenage years were spent ruthlessly mastering his own particular drumming style through frequent jams in both New York & London with globally renowned Chili's percussionist Chad Smith, and also taking inspiration from his classic idol Jon Bonham.

The CRYSTAL X trio recorded and arranged their debut EP at renowned Abbey Road Studios, after producer Rob Cass (Marshall Records MD & Cave Productions) discovered Xio’s previous online recordings. With help from producer Pearse MacIntyre, the band’s meticulous nuances is heard throughout all five original songs, creating a signature sound better described as anthemic, melodic & epic.

The tracks were then mixed in Florida at DogManic Recording Studios with the help of chief engineer 'Jedi' Jason Sedawie, while Xio took her first step as producer by mixing the EP to ambitious standards.

Hailing from Switzerland, Portugal and Scotland, they have all journeyed through the gigging circuit of London, from busking in Trafalgar Square to playing at the O2 Academy in Highbury & Islington, Surya and working their way to a personal goal of performing at the Camden Roundhouse & King's Cross Scala for all the true rockers out there.

2017 marks a year of great achievements for the band, as they get ready to release their debut EP and give music lovers the female leading lady they've been waiting for.
