Interview
with Krystal Keith

 

Lamitschka:
Music has many new fans throughout Europe who may be hearing about
you for the first time. How would you describe yourself and the music
you play to someone who has never seen or heard you? 

 

Krystal
Keith: 
A
good blend of all of the phases of country music . A little rock,
blues, traditional old school and modern. 

Lamitschka:
How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?

 

Krystal
Keith: 
 It
was amazing. Being out on tour is always the highlight for me.
Performing for fans and connecting with them in that live forum,
there’s nothing like it.

Lamitschka:
What is your latest CD and how’s it doing?

 

Krystal
Keith: 
 I
recently released a 4 song EP as a sampler of what will be on my
upcoming full-length album, along with a video for the lead song from
the EP “Daddy Dance With Me” and it is doing great. It was
really well received, the video is close to one million views which
is breathtaking for me to even say! 

Lamitschka:
How did you choose the title for the CD?  Is there a story
behind the name? 

 

Krystal
Keith: 
Whiskey
and Lace is a title that describes my personality to a tee. I’m
really girly with an edgy twist and I prefer whiskey when I
drink, I’m not really into fruity cocktails. I wrote the song with
Rodney Clawson and Lynn Hutton and just knew it had to be the album
title. 

Lamitschka:
Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding
the songs for your CD? 

 

Krystal
Keith: 
I
wrote a few of the songs, my dad wrote a few and then we chose a few
from other writers. When choosing songs, I just was
really adamant that the songs meant something to me and
really moved me in one way or another. 

Lamitschka:
How much creative control do you have over your music?

 

Krystal
Keith: I have a lot of creative control. I am extremely blessed that
I have producers that share my vision so working toward a common goal
with them makes it an incredibly satisfying experience.

 

Lamitschka:
What inspired you to become an artist?

 

Krystal
Keith: Music has always been my path. I have always said I would be a
singer. I grew up in a house full of music so I would say a
combination of being raised on the best music and growing up in the
industry is what was the driving force behind my desire to be an
artist. 

 

Lamitschka:
What inspired you to become a songwriter?

 

Krystal
Keith:  I always loved creative writing and luckily had my dad
as an amazing songwriting mentor. He really tried to teach me about
songwriting and help me develop into the writer I am today. 

 

Lamitschka:
Who is your biggest critic, yourself or others?

 

Krystal
Keith: Definitely me, for example, I worry so much about whether I
phrased a line in a song the correct way so that people will
understand what I’m trying to say. Sometimes I have to remind myself
that the beauty of a song is that the meaning is up to
interpretation. The listener will make the song say what they need it
to for them.

 

Lamitschka:
Is there any place you haven’t played that you would like to?

 

Krystal
Keith: I would love to play the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman. I would
love to just be a part of that history.
