Krystal Meyers states that she started singing at home at the age of two; sang her first solo in church at the age of five; started writing songs by age ten; and was playing the acoustic guitar by thirteen, later releasing her self-titled first album Krystal Meyers at age sixteen in 2005. Her second album, Dying For A Heart, was released on September 19, 2006 and her third, Make Some Noise, was released on September 9, 2008 and was later used by NBC in promoting its fall 2008 line-up. A sampling of her music was also used on ABC's high-impact Sunday-Night Lineup.
Born in California, she and her family later moved to Eugene, Oregon and when she was six they moved from there to Nashville, Tennessee.
While at Barefoot Republic youth camp, at the age of fourteen and before entering the ninth grade, she wrote "Anticonformity" (the song she says got her started) with a friend, Hannah Dwinell. When she entered the ninth grade she says she saw her peers falling into drugs and sex and then "anticonformity" became "really real" to her: [What's important is] "becoming the person God wants you to be and refusing to become the person that the world wants you to be...and to pursue the plan that God has for you... I know exactly what you're going through... I just want to encourage you."
Meyers stated that she knew she would be in music ministry from the time she could talk: "A lady in our church told my mom 'Your daughter is going to travel the world and be a missionary.' That’s what this is -- a mission field and music is the outlet... My faith means everything to me," she says. "It's who I am. It's the basis of everything I do. Jesus Christ is everything. He's given me peace and joy that is so unreal that I just have to sing about it. It comes out in my music. I have to share what I believe! ...I want[ed] God to be speaking through my music. So I stepped back and prayed about it. I surrendered the whole writing process to God."
In Japan, where Meyers' first record went gold, she was on the cover of Nylon Japan,AERA English magazine twice (their second issue in 2007 and their eleventh issue in 2008) and Tower Records' Bounce magazine. Meyers was on the cover of In Roc which is Japan's version of Rolling Stone magazine. She was on the cover of South Africa's Vision magazine and in the United States was on the cover of ONCOURSE magazine. She also appeared as a worldwide model for UNIQLO.

I LOVE her. I was disappointed when she left the industry. I do understand though. She got married and now has a baby son named Jonah. I hope she comes back!

I love Krystal because she's always extremely passionate about what she's singing about. She really knows how to connect with teenagers and younger people, whether it's through her rocker chick side, or her pop queen side. Krystal is a fantastic singer and role model.
