Crystal Bowersox Opening Act: Kelly Hoppenjans


Concert Details


She has a keen, finely honed pop instinct all her own.

New York Times

Accomplished singer-songwriter Crystal Bowersox draws on her various influences—across folk-pop, classic rock, soul, blues, and country—to make the kind of music that resonates with her spirit. It is both tender and tough, rough yet polished, and it encompasses many genres without falling neatly into one category.

Bowersox, a northwest Ohio native currently calling Nashville home, has built her life around music. Her love for music developed at an early age from a need to find peace in a chaotic world. Bowersox moved to Chicago as a teenager, where she spent her days performing underground on subway platforms in between working odd jobs. While in the big city, she broadened her musical horizons and shared her talents with a variety of venues, ultimately auditioning for the ninth season of American Idol. Her time on the show proved to be well spent, as she immediately left the soundstage for the recording studio. Since her introduction to the world through television, she has released two LPs, two EPs, and several singles. Additionally, she has used her talents to benefit several causes close to her heart and has become an advocate and inspiration for people living with type 1 diabetes.

In 2017, Bowersox released a new project—a live album, recorded at the Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, cleverly titled Alive. Not only is the title a play on words, representing the rawness of the tracks, but it pertains to the place where Bowersox currently is in her life. That place is one of joy, fulfillment, and stability for Bowersox and her eight-year-old son, Tony. Her music is intended to bring a positive message of love and light to the world—things that folks will be able to take with them on their own journey, so that they, too, can feel truly alive.
