July 12th- The Crane Wives
Indie Folk, Pop, Rock
The Crane Wives came together in 2010 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and immediately began gathering a following with intricate melodies, sister-harmonies, and compelling songcraft.
Initially part of the indie folk boom, their sound has grown and broadened with each new recording till categorization becomes difficult: rock, pop, folk? Just call it really good music. Audiences and critics agree: named JBL Professional’s ‘Best American Band’ in ’17, seven “Jammie” awards from influential radio station WYCE in ’11, ’12, ’16 and ’17; winner of Best Folk/Country song from international competition ArtPrize for “Easier” in ’12; and selection as one of ten “Entries We Loved” from the renowned NPR Tiny Desk Contest for “High Horse” in ’17.
Kate Pillsbury: guitars, vocals, Emilee Petersmark: guitars, banjo, vocals, Ben Zito: bass, occasional howls, secret production, Dan Rickabus: drums, harmony vocals, engineering. Four albums released to date: “Safe Ship, Harbored (2011), “The Fool In Her Wedding Gown” (2012), “Coyote Stories” (2015), and “Foxlore” (2016), plus a series of new singles in 2017, all available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Bandcamp, CDBaby, and even Myspace. If you want to hear about love, life, fear, hope, pain, and the occasional natural disaster, this band, and these songs, are for you.
