More about The Crystal Ceiling:
The Crystal Ceiling features session musicians known for working with multi-platinum artists such as (but not limited to) Taylor Swift, Blondie, Avril Lavigne, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and David Guetta. Impressively, not one of the musicians on the album aside from BELLA D and DRMAGDN recorded in the same room – this entire album is a true product of the future, utilizing the great power of the internet to craft it. The Crystal Ceiling is chock full of unforgettable, top-notch rock tracks featuring superior production and unmatched musical execution, sure to impress even the most discerning of palates.
The Crystal Ceiling is more than just a concept album – it is born of real life inspiration. The theme of escape from terrible circumstances, surmounting impossible obstacles and overcoming tragedy as a victorious hero is not just a fairy-tale – it’s Christie Oakes’ (the voice behind BELLA D) life story. Midway through the album recording process, Oakes received the terrible news that she had BRCA positive aggressive breast cancer and needed to not only endure grueling high dose chemotherapy, but also have massive surgery to remove both breasts and her ovaries, similar to Angelina Jolie. Since then, her music has taken on a higher stakes/real life-and-death meaning.
