Bay Station finds California-based songwriter/musicians Kwame Copeland and Deborah Crooks combining their talents and enlisting the help of several musical compadres to create a diverse form of Americana and rock music. San Francisco Bay Area songwriter Crooks’ lyric driven and soul-wise music draws on folk, rock, Americana and the blues and is often compared to Lucinda Williams and The Cowboy Junkies. Wyoming-born-and-raised songwriter/guitarist Copeland was reared on folk and steeped in Dylan before heading out to California to forge his own brand of Americana. Together, their sound nods to such influences as Tom Petty, Buddy & Julie Miller and Wilco. Drawing upon their collective experience, Crooks and Copeland released Your Own Reaction (under their former name, KCDC), a 10-song collection of Americana and rock, in 2014. With 2016’s Go Out and Make Some they hit their stride with a true melting pot of original Americana, blues, jazz and rock infused songs about love, lust, sandy beaches, dusty roads, wandering holy men, wolf birds and more. On April 27, they’ll release a 10-song follow-up, Other Desert Cities, inspired by the strange and poetic stories of the Mojave desert.
