Crystal Precious is a Canadian rapper, singer, actor, writer & host. She is best known as the MC for the critically-acclaimed Sweet Soul Burlesque troupe, where she performs her original "strip-hop" songs with a touch of burlesque striptease.  In 2015 East Van Digital released her 5-track record The Striphop EP with Self Evident following the success of her YouTube video "Apple Pie - No Pie For You", which features apron-clad Sweet Soul dancers destroying pies in slow-motion. 


Crystal's performance background in dance, theatre, screen acting and event organizing led her to form the Sweet Soul troupe with Cara Milk & Cherry OnTop in 2003, aiming to set a professional standard in Canada for the resurging art-form.


Crystal served as a co-founder and festival director for the Vancouver Burlesque Festival (VIBFA) for its first six years from 2006-2011. She also co-owned and managed the infamous West Coast underground cabaret, Dollhouse Studios, from 2006 to 2010. The spot was credited with serving as a community hub for different corners of both the West Coast burlesque and bass culture movements. Since then Crystal has worked closely with the Bass Coast Music Festival as a consultant and performer. 


Crystal wrapped a 5 year run at the award-winning Keefer Bar* in Vancouver's historic Chinatown, where she host Sweet Sip Thursdays - Sweet Soul Burlesque at the Keefer, and is working on new music and videos while taking a short performance hiatus.
