The Crossroads Band

Here is a great band from Washington Falls, NY. They play a style which is considered blues rock with an R&B flavor. I have liked this band since I first heard them a few years ago when a friend played their music for me. This band features some very talented musicians and the vocals are smooth as silk.

This is their Debut cd from 2002 and is titled simply Crossroads. It features ten tracks and begins with Free Man.This song is a favorite of mine for it’s great rhythm and clean sound. I can’t dance but can’t help moving to this rhythm. That is followed by I’m So Glad. A slower tempo tune, which is sure to be a favorite. The pace lifts a shade for Stranded. Another Slower Ballad type follows with Oh, Mama. Nice harmony and great vocals. They follow with Higher Ground. This, as do many others on the cd have a 70’s feel with a modern sound. They pick up the pace for a nice fast shuffle in You Broke Me Baby. The pace drops again for Time Slips Away. A song that speaks of how fast time passes. A slow rock song featuring great harmonies follows in Better. One Night follows and is a true ballad. This is the only cover song on the entire cd and was penned by Bartholomew/King. It has a 50’s blues ballad feel and sound, and is a great job. They close the cd with More Than I can say. It is another slow ballad type song and is, as with the rest of the songs featured, a very well written piece of musical art.

This cd is a definite keeper. Ladies will love it for a bit of music to snuggle up to. It is beyond me why these guys haven’t gotten more attention from the industry. Their sound and style makes them a shoe in for crossover hits.
