Sugarcane Jane, the Alabama Gulf Coast-based duo, will release their new studio album, Fellow Man –an album they conceived amidst the ongoing pandemic sweeping our nation. The album will be released via Admiral Bean Records on June 19, 2020.
Sugarcane Jane has amassed an extremely loyal following. Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee 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, folk, and rock. Anthony, the songwriter, is a multi-instrumentalist who can play anything he picks up, but live you can bet on him having his Gibson J45 acoustic guitar and har- monica. Savana Lee plants the groove with her Kala U-Bass guitar.
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 Kenny Rogers, Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, 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, is his life’s calling.
Recorded on a SoundWorkshop Series 34 board, better known as the poor man’s API, at in Loxley, Alabama, this current musical collection dances with the times, going hand in glove with the topics of the day. “Fellow Man,” written by Anthony Crawford literally weeks ago urges us to look out for our neighbors. It came flooding in as if the song had written itself. This album is thoughtful, reflective, and hopeful with classic Sugarcane Jane harmony. “There’s Got to Be More” (A Crawford), pulled from an early 90’s Pete Anderson pro- duced, Little Dog Records release, seemed fitting as the lyrics yearn for an- swers to the question, “Is there post life after this?” Their love for music and each other is evident throughout each song. “The Original Peace and Love”, a sister song to the aforementioned, is more proof that the inspiration was plentiful. On the song, “Blue Sky”, the spirit of Crawford’s former (The Shocking Pinks/The International Harvesters/The Electric Band) bandmate Neil Young surfaces, and makes you question if Young had penned the song himself. The album closes with the mournful “Change is Coming” (A Crawford), a beautiful contemplative look on life as we now know it.Admiral Bean Studio
