JULIE LIVINGSTON – Music Helps Find Faith

Julie Livingston – Top Ten Finalist
2016 Wildflower! Performing Songwriter Contest

Music, for some people, is profoundly more than mere entertainment. It’s therapeutic, healing and helps you find faith when you feel as if there is none left. Julie Livingston found there is more to music than just accompaniment and lyrics. In fact, Julie would rather sit at the piano and play for an hour than get a massage. Music and songwriting is her therapy, and she hopes to help others find their strength with her words and lyrics. Read More

Crystal Yates – A Voice As Big As Texas

They say that everything in Texas is bigger, and Crystal Yate’s voice certainly lends credence to that claim. The soul and gospel music genres of the South’s influence on Crystal’s style is evident in her smooth full-bodied vocals and the heart and soul that goes into her music. When asked about her genre, Yates says that she is more soulful country than anything, and I wholeheartedly agree.

A transplant to McKinney, TX, Crystal was born and raised in Niceville, FL. She and her husband, Will, took a leap of faith when they moved to Texas to pursue her musical carrier. Since that time, Yates has produced a full album, Love Wins, and in October she released an EP titled I Believe. In 2014 she was the winner of the prestigious Texaco Country Showdown competition where she was named best new act in country music. Read More
