In this next episode from Admiral Bean studio, Anthony Crawford pulls out 4 different acoustic guitars dating back as far as the 1930s. Each one has a unique story, character, and of course, you'll get to hear the distinct sound as Anthony picks, strums, and bends...
Anthony is a songwriter of rare talent and an acknowledged prodigy on the guitar. He has had more than four-hundred songs published including hits for Steve Winwood, Vince Gill, Kenny Rogers, Dwight Yoakam, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Having toured the world with Neil Young, Gill, Yoakam, Winwood, his own band “Blackhawk”—even playing with Paul McCartney onstage at Hyde Park–Anthony has finally settled on the Gulf Coast with the woman of his dreams.
A former session artist in Nashville, Savana Lee sings with the voice of an angel while deftly applying her skills to the ukulele, bass, and rhythm guitar. It was at the famous Deepfield Studio where she and Anthony first met. Ten years later, they were married.
Today, the husband and wife duo–performing as Sugarcane Jane–has amassed an extremely loyal following by producing some of the freshest vocal harmonies heard in decades. Anthony and Savana Lee Crawford create what they proudly call “Organic Music.” Rich, homegrown, and natural, their brand of Americana draws from a deep well of roots influences, interwoven with inflections of gospel, country, jazz, and rock.
Touring with Neil Young
Listen in as Anthony shares about touring with Neil Young and the “one thing” he learned (that we can all do) as the key to being successful.
Southern State of Mind
Capturing the mood of the fields and timberlands, this song is about triggering the mental images of a place that evoke a state of mind…a southern state of mind.
Let It Heal
The idea for “Let It Heal” began years ago with the memory of a dark night at a friend’s lake house. While staring into the flames of a campfire and purposefully releasing his grip on negative thoughts, Anthony Crawford realized he had created space in his life for more positive things.
Cabin on the Hill
Poking fun at the “family he never had,” Anthony wrote Cabin on the Hill with the same tongue-in-cheek he had written one of Sugarcane Jane’s biggest hits, Pedigree.
