Sugarcane Jane (Anthony Crawford & Savana Lee)

No automatic alt text available.

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 and a bass drum live (although given the opportunity, can play anything he puts his hands on) 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, and Sonny James and has written / co-written songs recorded by Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Kenny Rogers, 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’s fifth studio album, Ladders and Edges – an album they conceived with the legendary Colin Linden, Canadian musician, songwriter and record producer, musical director of Nashville, and member of the group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.  Released via Crawford’s Admiral Bean Records on June 2, 2017, recorded at Crawford’s own Admiral Bean Studio, in Loxley, Alabama, this cave man groove, thought provoking album delves into present times with positive messages and awareness.
“This album has been a long time coming.  These are all our own songs and really give more insight as to who we are and what we believe in.  Family is everything to us and we are trying to give our kids some guidance and advice in a song, without having to necessarily tell them everything repeatedly,” says Anthony. “These songs go deeper than some of our previous albums.  We really just laid our hearts out on our sleeves.”
