ROCK: Classic Rock, POP: 70's Pop
Formerly known as CRYSTAL-PHOENIX, incepted by singer songwriter James Lee Young, and drummer/percussionist Gil Gabaldon, in 1991.
After working for several years sharpening their skills, the guys decided to record their first project. Released in the summer of 2001, a bewildered Crystal-Phoenix is stunned when the CD shoots to number one at KCEL variety radio in California City. north of L.A.
Deejay Charlie Warren attributes their initial radio success to the nostalgic sounds and moods of the songs. "Their influences are from the 60's and 70's. They're incredible! Each song on the CD is as beautiful as the next."
With a sleek blend of folk, pop and hard rock, the CD is Southern California Rock And Roll yesterday, today and tomorrow, with a heavy Native American influence. They are legatees of The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, America, Led Zeppelin and others.
Notable note: Jimmy and Gil smashed airplay records at KCEL radio, 106.9fm, California City,California. The CD reached an unprecedented 52 weeks at number 1, and STAYED THERE until the station changed its format to oldies !!! Also in BIGGER news, the band has been nominated for BEST NEW ARTIST/GROUP at the 2002 Fifth Annual Native American Music Awards!!!! The awards were announced nationally, and will take place in Milwaulkee, Wisc., on Sept. 7th,2002. Vote for your favorite group at https://www.tradebit.com.
Daryl Dragon, who worked with the Beach Boys for more than six years, and better known as 'The Captain' half of The Captain and Tennille, writes in a letter to Jimmy, " Tunes were terrific!! Each tune seemed to be well thought out, lyrics meaningful, truthful and from the heart; each tune has it's OWN entity, rather than sounding similar to others on the CD. To me this is hard to accomplish- from most writers, unless they are top notch like you obviously are....Congrats!!"
In fall 2002, Crystal-Phoenix opened for rock superstar Kip Winger on his recent national tour, at the widely popular Paladino's Club in Tarzana, California. They were given a whopping 3 ENCORES!!!Also, they are going to be seen at the same venue soon opening for Native American Music Awards winner Micki Free!
