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, 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, Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Vince Gill, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Sonny James, and has written songs recorded by Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Kenny Rogers, Pegi Young, Lee Greenwood, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Oak Ridge Boys, Lorrie Morgan, and others. 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.
Their new album, Ladders and Edges, to be released March 2017 will be available for Pre-Order on December 2, 2016. Co-produced by well-known producer/musician/music director, Colin Linden, at Anthony's Admiral Bean Studio, Ladders and Edges brings Sugarcane Jane's sensitivity level to its highest with heartfelt lyrics of life's lessons with '13th Believer' to pure groove drawn tracks like 'Train of Information''.
