Three years prior to releasing their first self-titled EP, Acee and Simoneaux met in an Austin, Texas video store. Within a studio supplied by Acee, they began developing their sound. What emerged was an eclectic mix of over 25 catchy songs spanning pop, rock, folk, alternative, blues, funk, and jazz. The name, Crystal Jukebox, was inspired by the opening line of Bob Dylan's "Tarantula", which was a gift from Simoneaux to Acee. "The name fit what we were trying to do - create a bank of potential hit songs that were authentic and unique like a crystal and diverse enough to resemble selections from a jukebox." The EP is only a glimpse of this larger vision. Currently, they're recording new material and recruiting musicians to form a live sound. Lyrically, the EP takes you on a ride though a daring encounter in Windsor, aching for lost love (Missing You), chilling out on a Saturday afternoon (Chocolate Wine), finding someone new (Strawberry Magician), and the fuzzy line between lust and love (Melissa). Musically, the EP is upbeat and catchy. The bass and drums are locked into a solid groove. The vocals are dynamic and fit the mood of each song. And, the music is textured with sophisticated yet simple instrumentation and atmospheric orchestration.
