One Year Old

Yesterday marked 1 year of IceChrystalls and in between eating cake we managed to finish recording Beat and Shadows and put down the vocals to something a little bit different collaborating with another Reverbnation artist. All will be revealed very soon :)

Loads of New Songs

Just working on final mixes of Silence and Wonderland. Should have these uploaded very soon. We have lots of partially recorded songs to put vocals on including Stronger, Beat, City Lights, One Day and Shadows. More info soon :)

Welcome to Callum

We've recently recruited Callum Gutteridge on guitar. He's an old friend and has performed live before with Laura in Chainless Events. Since Callum's arrival, we've written new songs City Lights and One Day. We hope to have some live rehearsal clips on Youtube soon

we are looking forward to hearing all new stuff


Rehearsals going well for new songs. Finished vocal arrangements for Beat yesterday and recorded an "unplugged version" just for fun. Also filmed a few covers, including Gotye's "Somebody that I used to Know" and Taylor Swift's "Safe and Sound" with Emily playing guitar for the first time with IceChrystalls. If these come out ok they'll be heading for youtube soon so if you haven't subscribed do it now - you know it makes sense :D http://www.youtube.com/user/IceChrystalls?feature=mhee
