The Crane Wives, from Grand Rapids, Michigan have evolved far beyond their chipper folk rock beginnings in the last nine years into an altogether unclassifiable beast: wiser, darker, louder, the sound of lives lived fully and well. There's a breathtaking emotional honesty in these songs: life is not easy, but it is worth it, and we all need each other to get through. Winner of JBL's Best American Band contest in 2017 and selected as one of ten "Entries We Loved" from the renowned NPR Tiny Desk Contest for "High Horse" in the same year. The Crane Wives have been releasing a series of singles in anticipation of their fifth album, which is expected to be released in 2020! Catch them live in the Back Room on Friday, October 11th.
