2015 Dave Crossland

Unexpectedly sultry and gritty interpretations of the songs of the late John Stewart, unsung Americana hero and Dave's mentor, recorded live in the studio over a weekend with his full-tilt band and beloved '49 Gibson.

"This album is a labor of love, recorded live in one weekend at the House Of Blues Studio in Encino, California. We were in and out of there in less than 30 hours, thanks to the incredible musicianship and drive of Tom Polce, who guided the whole effort from behind a set of 1928 Leedy drums."

Produced by Tom Polce.
