"Glacier Cool Americana Songs of Love, Loss and Heartache." — The Rocking Magpie
"If I could point to one album that totally exemplifies Americana, I think this may be it. Honest song writing, twang, some crunchy guitars, and just extremely listenable music." - Harry Kaplan / Twangrila.com
Born and raised in Idaho, Jeff Crosby has been sharing his unique perspective of Americana throughout the US and beyond for the past decade. His songs and stories paint a picture of the hardships and beauty of being raised and living in small town America, to five years living in a shoe box apartment off Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles CA. Then traveling and living on the road playing 250 shows a year. Though recently making the move to Nashville TN, Jeff continues to spend majority of his time touring the country.
After spending the last two years splitting his time between playing guitar for Widespread Panic song-writer Jerry Joseph and performing with his own band, The Refugees, Jeff hit the studio to record his fourth full length album, Postcards from Magdalena. These new songs were inspired by the places and cultures Crosby experienced while traveling and touring across the U.S., Iceland, the U.K., Mexico, Colombia, Nicaragua, and Alaska.
Produced and engineered in Portland, OR by Gregg Williams (Dandy Worhals, Blitzen Trapper, Pete Droge, Jesse Malin) and Geoff Piller in Nashville, TN, Postcards from Magdalena is set for an independent release in the U.S. October 27th and will be out on At The Helm Records in the U.K.
