Second Hand Soul is the powerhouse musical duo of Crystal Hoyt and Todd Bray. Crystal’s Louisiana Soul and Todd’s Tennessee grit work hand in hand to create a sound and chemistry that is one of a kind.
As a former member of the popular country trio Trailer Choir, Crystal has entertained audiences across the world including the CMT awards, USO Tours, and the Grand Ole Opry. A long way from the humble beginnings of a farmgirl in Louisiana, she is most known for show stopping vocals and performance, and she continues to make a lasting mark in the industry as an accomplished writer and most recently producer.
The son of a Baptist preacher in Sevierville, TN, Todd grew up singing in church, and quickly found his calling through music. Todd’s passion and intensity is unmistakable, through both his blues-influenced guitar playing and soulful vocals. Having written, produced, and recorded with some the finest players and singers in the world, Todd's presence remains strong in the Nashville music scene.
At a writers event hosted by Crystal the two were introduced and quickly discovered their musical chemistry was undeniable. In late 2013, seeing they had stumbled onto something special, Crystal and Todd formed Second Hand Soul. They are currently completing their independent debut EP set for release in late August.
