SUGARCANE JANE (Anthony Crawford & Savana Lee)

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, harmonica, and a bass drum (which he plays while strumming his six-string) and Savana Lee deftly dances between ukelele bass, 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, 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’s newest studio album, Southern State of Mind – is a collection of songs written during a one week writing session with co-writer/producer, Buzz Cason. This album may go down as their best yet with highlights beingCampfire, Southern State of Mind, We Can Dream, Cabin on the Hill, all of which highlight the couple’s natural ability to harmonize as one.  The album is being released via Cason’s ArenA Recordings | Nashville, TN in Fall 2018. Recorded at Crawford’s own Admiral Bean Studio,  in Loxley, Alabama.
