CRYSTAL BOWERSOX - Crystal Bowersox performs tonight at WorkPlay. She has made it her mission to live life and her music to the fullest. With a gentle warmth and wisdom well beyond her years, the consummate artist has an uncompromising vision of herself and her music that is refreshing and rare. "I believe if you stand for something, stand your ground; stand it strong and stand it proud." It is this fortitude and courageous spirit that resonated with millions night after night when the 2010 American Idol runner up took the stage. There is a sincerity and authenticity about her that just can't be manufactured. The same can be said about her musical prowess, which has all the markings of a creative force to reckon with who is in it for the long haul. Her rich amalgam of blues, country, folk and rock makes her one of the most dynamic young voices in music to come along in years. She has performed alongside everyone from Harry Connick Jr., Joe Cocker, and Alanis Morrisette, to Michael Franti, John Popper and BB King. All That For This, Crystal Bowersox's sophomore release and Shanachie Entertainment debut, is a powerful testament to her talents as both a singer and songwriter, as well as her unerring musical vision. She confides, "I am more proud of this body of work then anything I've done before. If this music can move someone to tears or makes them smile, then I have really accomplished something. That's all I can ask for." "All That For This is" Crystal Bowersox's emancipation from judgment. It is the manifestation of her own womanhood and enlightenment won through hard fought battles, failures and triumphs. It is the belief that listening to your own inner voice will lead you where you need to be.  Until now, the world has witnessed only a portion of Crystal Bowersox's talent, which was channeled through mainstream pop expectations on her debut release, Farmer's Daughter. With the highly anticipated release of All That For This (March 26, 2013), produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Sheryl Crow, John Lee Hooker, Raul Malo), Bowersox exposes a new dimension of her music.  For tickets or more information on tonight's show, visit
