Kristal Lyndriette, what can I say about this R&B singer? She is a beautiful, talented and humble person. After talking to her this past week. I am so intrigued by her story and how she got her start in the music industry. Kristal is that down home Sista with a slight country accent that you can't help but love when you first meet her. She was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, and raised in Gastonia, North Carolina. Kristal has always had a love for music and she was surrounded by music from an early age. Her father is a bass player and mother, aunt, and uncle are all singers. When asked how soon she realized she wanted to sing she said, "I have been singing all my life. The moment I realized I wanted to sing professionally was about the age of eleven." She then went on to say that she sang in the church and school choirs.
At the age of sixteen Kristal was signed to Rich Harrison's label Richcraft, and Jive Records in 2007. Rich Harrison helped formed the R&B female group RichGirl which included Lydriette and three other members. The group worked together from 2007 to 2011 and released their self title debut album in 2009 and a mixtape titled "Fall in love with RichGirl" which was released in 2011. The group was based out of Atlanta where all the members lived together. After the group disbanded Lyndriette fell into a depression for two years and admits that she had to take on a regular job in her hometown. Lydriette said that during the depression she listened to her favorite singer Brandy. Whose music she says,"bought me out of a lot of dark places". She mentioned that she believed God gave her that two years of down time to find out who "Kristal really is". She pulled through the depression with the help of her family and friends.
