Dave Crossland on Sunset Road

Dave Crossland on Sunset Road
Friday, April 21st, 5-7PM

A dynamic vocalist with solid command over his 1949 Gibson J-45, Dave Crossland is one of the best songwriters under the radar today. "His songs test the American dream against the American reality with a naturalistic sweep, a panoramic Americanism, that set them apart," says the Boston Globe. Performing Songwriter casts him with Jimmy LaFave, Kevin Welch and John Stewart as "a classic chronicler of the American experience, pulling back layers of the proverbial American dream to expose the real faces marked by sin and salvation."

Dave's new CD, Pearl, is about to hit the North American airwaves. Producing this effort is Jim Infantino, the mastermind of Jim's Big Ego who has known Dave and his music since they were each cutting their teeth on the Boston music scene. Contributing further to the alchemy is Boston's finest audio engineer, Ducky Carlisle, responsible for Grammy-nominee Susan Tedeschi's breakthrough album, Just Won't Burn. Guest appearances include Jimmy Ryan on mandolin, Steve Sadler on lap steel, Mark Hickox on bass, Mike Piehl on drums, and Antje Duvekot singing harmony vocals.

Dave will be opening for Terri Allard and Her Band on Friday, April 21 at the Gravity Lounge. The Gravity Lounge is located at 103 S. 1st St., Charlottesville, VA.
