Assignment 2- Band/Artist Biography
Crystal Unit Biography
Our bands name is crystal unit our style of music is indie pop. We are made up of three members Ricardo who is on the piano, Joshua better known as Yoshi who plays the drums and myself who is on the guitar an our are lead singer my name is Kevin. Indie means independent which means you want different. That’s what brought our band together. I and Ricardo have known each other since Pre-K and we started listening to this music because of our attraction to all things different. We liked the sound of the music and all that good stuff. By the time high school rolled around me and Ricardo were ready to start a band but we still needed one more in the band. That’s how we met Joshua we needed a drummer an he liked the kind of music we wanted to play, we were together all through high school. We parted ways when it was time to go to college. But we still get together every now and then and play small gigs that we can fine. Its easy seeing as how we all go to the same college. We dont have any CD's our band is low key and we intend to leave it that way. Your probably asking yourself about our name that relates to the necklaces we all wear. Its a necklace an in the middle of it theirs a crystal. This necklace went with all of our clothes an we all liked and since we all wore it I thought it be good to make it part of our name. And the unit part just made it sound cooler.
