About Crystal Lady

Crystal Lady is an original 4 piece Alternative Rock band from St. Louis, MO. Band members; singer/songwriter Chela Mancuso, guitarist Nick Fiveash, bassist Dylan Roussel and drummer Correy Smotherson all have formal music training and various diverse musical tastes ranging from metal, psychedelic rock, grunge, blues, and hard rock.

The band members create music as a cohesive unit, blending their musical tastes and musicianship to produce a tasty hybrid sound that is edgy, trippy, sophisticated, yet raw and earthy at the same time.
