“A mainstay in Vancouver’s underground for more than a decade.”
Crystal Precious is a queer singer, rapper, dancer, writer, actor, & host. She is best known for the music video “Apple Pie (No Pie For You)”, "The Beginner's Guide to Festival Raving" (Adventures in Sass), and a resident MC & main stage host of the Bass Coast Music Festival. Many know her from being the GM of the former underground venue Dollhouse Studios, which served to carve out a much-needed femme-forward space in the West Coast's electronic music scene.
For 15 years CP toured with the award-winning Sweet Soul Burlesque, kicking off each show with her original vocal hip hop tunes. She went on to produce and MC their six year weekly run at The Keefer Bar (2010 - 2016). Her first record “The Striphop EP”, was produced by Self Evident (lighta sound, dipped recordings) and was released on East Van Digital. In February of 2020, CP debuted her new music and storytelling show "Things I Shouldn't Tell You" at the Push International Performing Arts Festival.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, CP hosted and curated shows for the Vancouver Mural Festival. She is currently recording new music.
