Winners of Eighteen Detroit Music Awards Winner of Global Music Award (Rock Category)
Sweet Crystal is a very rare group of musicians. Since it's founding, the core trio of Marq Andrew Speck (lead vocals, keyboards), Bill Blatter (guitar, vocals), Steve Wieser (drums) and newest member Martin Kuchar (bass) has remained together in pursuit of a message, a music ministry that continues to this day. That’s a lifetime of quality hard, progressive rock music; of honing their skills as musicians and artists and generating a respectable fan base. Perhaps most importantly, a continuing quest refining their sound and standing on the front lines of the Michigan Christian rock scene, even before that particular branch of music had a name.
What's new for the band this year? One more prestigious 2018 Detroit Music Awards for "Outstanding Gospel/Christian Act" and their sixth release - aptly called "Got Your Six" is following quickly on the heals of last year's award-winning "5 CARAT ROCK". And less we forget: the band welcomes latest member to the stage - Marty Kuchar joins the guys on bass guitar making the show... even sweeter!
The music, the message, the mission, the ministry - all continue with no signs of slowing down any time soon.
