About

Sweet Crystal is a very rare group of musicians. Since it's founding, the trio of musicians that make up Sweet Crystal - Marq Andrew Speck (lead vocals, keyboards), Bill Blatter (guitar, vocals) and Steve Wieser (drums) 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.
