Sugarcane Jane, the Alabama Gulf Coast-based husband and wife duo has amassed an extremely loyal following. Anthony and Savana Lee Crawford purvey what they proudly call “Organic Music at its Finest.” Rich, homegrown, and natural, their brand of Americana draws from a deep well of roots influences, interwoven with inflections of gospel, country, jazz, and rock. Listeners can expect mostly acoustic sounds, and some of the freshest-sounding vocal harmonies they will ever hear. Both virtuosos in their own right, Anthony is a songwriter who plays acoustic guitar, mandolin, and a bass drum (which he plays while strumming his six-string) and Savana Lee deftly dances between rhythm guitar and snare drum.
Multi-instrumentalist Anthony Crawford is known in most circles as a sideman to the stars. Over the course of the last 25 years, he has performed with Neil Young, Sonny James, Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Vince Gill, Rosanne Cash, and Rodney Crowell, and has written / co-written songs recorded by Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Kenny Rogers, Pegi Young, Lee Greenwood, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, to name a few. Yet, even with his history of working with heavyweights, Crawford feels Sugarcane Jane – his musical venture with multi-instrumentalist wife Savana Lee Crawford, is his life’s calling.
Sugarcane Jane newest studio album, Dirt Road’s End – an album they conceived and co-produced with legendary Americana/Roots singer-songwriter Buzz Cason is some of their finest work to date. The album was released via Cason’s ArenA Recordings / eOne Entertainment on April 28, 2015. Recorded on analog two-inch tape on the classic Otari MTR-90 tape machine at Buzz Cason’s Creative Workshop in Nashville, this fast-paced, high-energy album traverses a range of moods and stories.
“The release of this album is kind of like watching your baby grow up and move out of the house,” says Savana. “These songs are such a part of us and are the very essence of Sugarcane Jane. We are so excited to see them reach a broader audience.”
