Crystal City is the folk-pop lovechild of Dave Helmer and Sam Drella. Formed during the summer of 2009 in Marshalltown, Iowa, Helmer and Drella both have had extensive but separate experiences writing and performing music.
Since combining forces for their debut, self-titled release, their music has taken on a life of its own with organic, freeing qualities. Crystal City is a hopeful, dreamy release and beautiful debut.
Currently located in Iowa, Crystal City has grown to include Blake Oleson and Brock Muench. The group is writing and readying to record a second release, slated for 2014.
