Crystalena & The Connection stand as vividly as they are named, a connection to music that audiences hear more than sound. They are group of musicians who are dedicated to mixing genres and attitudes. After diving into preforming live in the end of 2015, Crystalena started to collaborate with drummer, Kira Monfort whom she had known through Carleton Universities Music Program. They tackled local Ottawa music showcases and Carleton University Music shows, but quickly realized it was something special. Not long after in 2017 Crystalena & Kira found Sean Duhaime whom made it a sealed deal with his electrifying guitar & love for music. From Sean's background in neo soul and jazz, to punk inspired funk from Kira & sultry synth melodies from Crystalena, the connection began.

 

Over the past 3 years they've been busy recording, creating original material and unique engaging music sets at the some of the most classic staples of the music community including Babylon, The Blacksheep Inn. L!VE on Elgin, The British & more. However, they knew they were missing one thing, a R&B and award winning bassist, Peterson Altimo. 


Crystalena & The Connection have been collectively saving up the best funk rock grooves and melancholic sass dripping lyrics to bring you some of the most jaw dropping performances with a neo soul indie- rock inspired Canadiana twist.
