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, folk, 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 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, Sonny James, 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 newest studio album, Southern State of Mind – an album they conceived and co-produced with legendary Americana/Roots singer-songwriter Buzz Cason is some of their finest work to date. The album is set to be released via Cason’s ArenA Recordings / eOne Entertainment on October 19, 2018. Recorded at Crawford’s Admiral Bean Studio, and mixed at Buzz Cason’s Creative Workshop in Nashville, this fast-paced, high- energy album traverses a range of moods and stories.
“Light hearted and feel good tunes, much like our Dirt Road’s End album.” says Anthony. “Once again, the harmonies take center stage yet classic timeless lyrics and melodies are not far behind.”
