"I am a 16-year-old girl who loves God and who stands up for 'anticonformity'," says rock artist Krystal Meyers. "I've chosen to find my identity in God instead of society. There are too many people doing what they shouldn't, and I don't want to be like that. I don't want to bow down to those pressures so I'm not going to." With the bitter peer pressure to fit in, today's teenage girls must laugh at the phrase "sweet sixteen," but Krystal is one 16-year-old who isn't afraid to stand her ground. She's a rock vocalist, musician and songwriter who stands up for her morals and refuses to walk the lines she doesn't believe in just to follow the crowd. This conviction, which is so prevalent in her personal life, echoes through her edgy rock 'n' roll style and lyrics. Full of energy and punk attitude, Krystal gives her peers an anthem to live by with her self-titled Essential Records debut."I'm a teenager myself, so I will be able to talk to kids on levels that a twenty-four-year old can't," says Krystal, discussing the impact of her message. "All teenagers including myself can be rebellious at times and say, 'You don't know anything!' Well, I am a teenager so I'm talking a language that other teens will be able to understand."
