Led by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Tyler Mechem and pianist Joe Giant, Charleston rock band Crowfield has worked diligently over the last year, touring the country behind their latest album, Goodbye, Goodnight, So Long Midwestern
, and recording new material for an upcoming release. This summer, they signed a recording contract with Universal/Republic Records, making them labelmates with the likes of the Black Eyed Peas, Jack Johnson, and Sheryl Crow. Crowfield’s first single on the label, “Moving On,” hit airwaves nationally in September. Local rock station the Bridge 105.5 was the first to air the song in town.
“It’s kind of a scary new world to be in, but it’s what we wanted, so we’re learning our way,” says Mechem. “We’re very thankful and scared shitless.” That’s doubtful.
Mechem and his mates headline a show at the Music Farm on Fri. Nov. 19 with extra horn players in two and support from Mississippi-based songwriter Charlie Mars. Tickets are available for $12 at musicfarm.com and etix.com (those who purchase tickets from etix.com might gain access to info on a special related event). Check myspace.com/crowfieldmusic for more.
