Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents CRYSTAL SHAWANDA: FISH OUT OF WATER TOUR Saturday, July 29 at Blue Frog Studios, 1328 Johnston Road, White Rock. Tickets are $35.00 (plus Service Charges), available from Blue Frog Studios. Charge online at www.bluefrogstudios.ca/newshows.html. CRYSTAL SHAWANDA has amassed an impressive array of awards and accolades with thousands of concerts across North America under her belt and a remarkable recording pedigree. Her soulful, rootsy sound has allowed for a nearly seamless bridging of the traditional country and blues worlds. Crystal’s amazing talent shines through in “You Can Let Go”, “What Do I Have to Do”, “Dawn of A New Day”, “Try”, “The Whole World’s Got the Blues”, “Beautiful Day” and “Closer”. Crystal struggled mightily for many years to find her place within the music industry. Her unique aboriginal cultural background has left her feeling like an outsider at times. That search may now be at an end as the process of creating her latest album, the cathartic, bold and refreshingly authentic Fish Out of Water sees the talented Shawanda not just coming to terms with her unique place in the industry, but embracing and truly celebrating it. Like a fish out of water trying to fly, the hard-hitting blues title track “Fish Out of Water”, the wistful country-tinged “Laid Back” and the insightful “Skin Deep”, amidst the album’s remainder, unequivocally portray an artist who has truly found her voice; rich, powerful, charming and intimately real. The release of Dawn of a New Day (2008) spawned the hit ballad “You Can Let Go”. The album entered the Canadian Country charts at #2 and the Billboard Country chart at #16, eventually selling more than 400,000 copies. Crystal was named CCMA Female Artist of the Year (2008), won Best New Country Artist at the Canadian Radio Music Awards (2009) and was nominated for two Juno Awards that same year. She won the Juno Award for Aboriginal Album of the Year (2013). Shawanda has also earned three Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards and five Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in her career.
